Exploring the Caribbean on a yacht charter brings the ultimate freedom and flexibility. This is the place to embrace island time and soak up the stunning views, and what better way to do so than from a luxury sailing yacht? Spend your days cruising through paradise before heading ashore for a taste of the Caribbean high-life. From chic beach bars to luxury resort hotels, whether you are seeking sundowners in seclusion or cocktails in a club, there is something for everyone.

Let us guide you through the ultimate 7-day Caribbean charter to experience unparalleled luxury and adventure aboard the stunning SERENDIPITY I next year.

1 Antigua

Embark at Falmouth Harbour on the northwest side of the island. Antigua is infused with typical Caribbean charm, rugged coastlines, and stunning white sand beaches. A place with rich, historical maritime heritage, this is an ideal starting point to relax and get your bearings.

The vast and protected coral reef here has unparalleled snorkelling and diving sites while the beaches, with their bowed palm trees brushing the water’s edge, guarantee envy-inducing family portraits. Drop anchor along one of the many beaches and have an impromptu barbecue of line-caught fish and coconut rice.

2 Barbuda

Sail to the beautiful island of Barbuda, one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets. Anchor in Low Bay’s gin-clear waters and, after some fun with the watersports equipment, take a leisurely lunch on board. Choose from countless ribbons of sand such as beautiful Princess Diana or Pink Sand Beach to explore and have fun with some beach games in this unspoiled paradise.

Don’t miss secluded Coco Point, regarded by Caribbean connoisseurs as one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole area — most definitely a path less travelled. Relish the velvet white sand and snorkel in the clear waters for a window into the beautiful underwater world.

Sandy Island is an incredible spot, just north of Anguilla. With stunning beaches and the most incredible authentic lobster lunch experience, this is a true taste of the Caribbean. At the end of the afternoon, cruise to idyllic Rendezvous Bay, boasting the longest beach on the island.

Enjoy beachcombing along the white sandy shores surrounded by palm, wild sea grape, and coconut trees. The clear, turquoise water is ideal for snorkelling and the view to St Maarten is simply breathtaking. Enjoy sundowners at one of the many shacks along the beach and return to your private yacht for a very special dinner on board prepared by your dedicated chef.

4 St Barts

In the morning, perhaps arrange a fun trip around the island, with a mini moke or Vespa scooter. This can be pre-booked according to requirements. A wonderful way to experience the winding hills of compact St Barts and appreciate some of the spectacular views on offer.

Cruise around to beautiful Shell Beach and head ashore to enjoy a Mediterranean-style lunch with your feet in the sand, listening to the resident DJ’s set at the stylish Shellona Beach Resort. Exuding a cool vibe, much like Mykonos or Ibiza, relax on sun loungers for a chilled afternoon as the warm turquoise water laps at your feet.

Moor overnight in Gustavia Port and take a relaxed walk around the shops, returning to SERENDIPITY I for sundowners and dinner on deck.

5 St. Kitts

Head ashore to explore the range of great activities, with so many experiences in St Kitts there is certainly something to please every visitor. From Sky Safari zip lining with amazing views over the rainforest canopy to exhilarating dune buggy beach tours, plenty of fun is guaranteed whatever you choose.

For a more leisurely approach, why not enjoy the scenic railway with the yacht at anchor in Frigate Bay or wander around the amazing Brimstone Hill Fortress and soak up the incredible views?

Take lunch at one of the many delicious waterfront restaurants and then perhaps head out in the tender for an afternoon of offshore fishing, some more fun with the watertoys or simply relax on board in peace. If you are chartering as an adult group or a family with young children, this is a Christmas vacation that caters to all.

6 Nevis

Brimming with rustic beauty, the yachting haven of Nevis is lush and inviting. One half of the island nation of St Kitts and Nevis, this is a place where serenity and adventure are available in equal measure. From the verdant summit of Nevis Peak down to the powder-soft, sugar-white sand of Pinney’s Beach, swap snow for sand and spend Christmas surrounded by topical beauty and exotic wildlife.

Activity seekers may enjoy a hike around the dormant Nevis Peak, spotting vervet monkeys and local birds – and for those after a slower pace – lounge carefree on an empty beach, or sneak to the Four Seasons for a massage and a cocktail or two.

For golf lovers, pre-book an exclusive golfing opportunity at the remarkable Four Seasons Resort Robert Trent Jones II course.

7 Antigua

Take a leisurely cruise back to Antigua, stopping in a scenic bay to enjoy a relaxed brunch and some time with the watersports equipment.

Disembark at a convenient point and enjoy time ashore in vibrant Antigua. Perhaps head up to Shirley Heights for panoramic views over English Harbour and do try locally distilled rum in a refreshing Dark & Stormy cocktail before heading home with the memories of a Christmas spent sailing around the jaw-dropping Caribbean with your loved ones.
