Located half way down the Leeward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean chain, Antigua is a hive of the yacht charter activity. Most yacht charters will begin with the glistening beaches and highlife of Antigua, before sailing northwest toward the Virgin Islands or south toward the Windward Islands. This British based colony still remains a crossroad for sailing yachts heading up and down the archipelago of the Greater and Lesser Antilles. Sailing conditions around Antigua are excellent with an annual rainfall averaging only 45 inches, making it the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands. The northeast trade winds are nearly constant year round, wavering only in September. Antigua's coastline consists of miles of white sandy beaches, coves and secluded anchorages - ideal for any for yacht charter holiday.
The colonial history of Antigua has left some interesting naval sites, including the ruins at the top of Shirley Heights, the site of the British artillery emplacements. If you can summon the energy, a hike to the protected harbor is well worth the effort. The view is outstanding. When you tire of the crowds of Antigua, Barbuda is a refreshingly peaceful island, still relatively untouched. The island is a great escape, and houses one of the regions most significant bird sanctuaries. The reefs surrounding Antigua and Barbuda, once detrimental to enemy vessels, are now a source of pure enjoyment for yacht charter guests. Snorkel or dive amidst a wonderland of colorful marine life including snappers, blue tangs, angelfish, grunts, parrotfish and brilliant corals.
If you fall in love with the beauty of Antigua it's hardly surprising, yet your yacht charter adventure is only just beginning. Sail northwest or south to enjoy some of the most beautiful natural island paradises, the Caribbean has to offer.
