Leeward Islands Yacht Charter

Your Guide to Yacht Charter in the Leeward Islands

A yacht charter vacation in the Leeward Islands, often known as the Lesser Antilles, will exceed expectations. This is a yachtsman's paradise. These islands sit half way down the eastern Caribbean chain, beginning with Nevis, St Kitts, St Bart’s and St Maartin in the north, Antigua and Barbuda in the middle and the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe to the south. Sailing throughout the Leeward Islands, you'll find an intriguing blend of cultures. Les Saintes holds a taste of France, a quaint Dutch influence is prevalent in the southern parts of St Maartin, and Antigua of course, is unmistakably British. A yacht charter holiday in the Leeward Islands will offer you everything - majestic tropical landscapes, powdery white beaches, sparkling waters, the exotic cuisine of St Maartin and the lively nightlife of Antigua. The nature lover will not be disappointed with the beauty of St. Kitts and Nevis. The surreal atmosphere on these northern islands is a naturally intoxicating blend of sunshine, fresh sea air and rich vegetation. Both islands are crowned with spectacular cloud-ringed peaks covered with tropical forests and brilliant flowers.

Midway down the Leeward Islands, you'll find the thriving core of Antigua, a major yacht charter base. Antigua is the image of a British colony set amongst a tropical paradise. Due to the islands natural defences, the British choose Antigua as its naval stronghold in the Caribbean, over two hundred years ago. Antigua, being the largest of the British Leeward Islands had warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. Today, charter boats flock to Antigua for the same reasons. If you tire of the constant parties in Antigua, take a day sail over to Barbuda for some peace and tranquillity. Commercially, Barbuda is relatively unscathed, which means secluded beaches and quiet anchorages, are still a definite possibility.

On the southern tip of the Leeward Islands, constant easterly trade winds provide some magnificent open water sailing. Cruise amongst some of the most undeveloped islands in the Caribbean - Iles des Saintes, Marie Galante and Dominica. A yacht charter in the Leeward Islands can offer you everything from spectacular scenery, superb diving, delicious cuisine, peace and tranquillity or lively entertainment.
