The Caribbean: Beach bars & colourful markets

Probably one of the most desirable destinations of the world the Caribbean is synonymous with luxury and best explored by yacht with all the freedom and flexibility that allows. Enjoy the perfect combination of sandy beaches and azure blue waters, wrapped together within the beautifully gentle climate to island hop the days away.

Try a variety of water sports, from snorkelling and diving to big-game fishing. See for yourself the vibrant colours of coral reefs teeming with fish and illuminated by the ever-present sunshine.


The Windward Islands – Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago, Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent, The Grenadines and Grenada – lie in the southeast Caribbean and offer wonderful cruising, harnessing the northeast trade winds.


The Leeward Islands are renowned for their beauty. Within the Lesser Antilles chain, each island offers something unique. Many islands are volcanic and some have been created from vast beds of coral. Among the most familiar islands St Barts, St Maarten and Antigua are favoured winter yacht charter holiday destinations for their mild climate, constant winds and slow pace of life.
