Leeward Islands Yacht Charter Guide
Sailing along the archipelago of volcanic islands between Puerto Rico and Dominica you will be amazed by the diversity of scenery, cultures and colours. Each of the many islands has their own distinct personality, from the black sands of Dominica, the gastronomic delights of St Maarten, to the isolation of Saba or opulence of the exclusive St Barts, you will find endless ways to spend your days. A private charter yacht is the ideal way to visit the Leeward Islands – hop from one idyllic beach to the next and take the chance to stop at the world-class dive sites. Snorkel the calm bays of Anguilla, dive the famous Charlie Brown wreck off Sint Eustatius or simply relax on board your luxury yacht as you sail in the soft trade winds.
Key Cruising Areas: The archipelago offers many sailing choices. The 18 islands each have individual charms, with chic ports, modern cities, deserted beaches or tropical forests, there is an itinerary to suit any taste.
Don’t Miss: A truly unique way to explore Anguilla is on horseback. Hooves splashing in azure waters of Cove Bay, or meandering treks through green forest trails will create a special experience. For for the romantics, try a full moon ride along the beach.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: St Maarten has established itself as the culinary capital of the world. Famous for its fusion cuisine, the island offers a huge variety of foods to suit all tastes and moods – from cosy beach-side bistros to gourmet restaurants. For a special evening head to Orient Bay and order the lobster – simple and traditional, but perfectly executed.
Local Culture: The islands are full of history and culture. Even if you’re not a history buff, Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park on St Kitts is an amazing example of architecture. The massive, well-preserved fort is an imposing sight on the top of Brimstone Hill, with beautiful views of the island and interesting background.
Best Beach: The white sand and crystal-clear water of Half Moon Bay are perfect for snorkelling, paddling and diving off the floating jetty. The exclusive Mill Reef Club offers five miles of coastline and three private islands in the bay, with a host of water activities and dining options to choose from.
IYC recommends: Explore the archipelago from the air with a private helicopter tour. Lifting off in St Maarten, the views of white-edged islands, lush rainforests, and waters with more shades of green than you could imagine will leave you will lifelong memories.
