Yacht Charter Destination The Leeward Islands ExperienceBook Now
If you’re thinking of a luxury yacht charter in the Leeward Islands, keep reading. This group of Caribbean islands is nothing if not diverse. Each island has its own personality, cuisine, and “must-see” sites. Tying them all together is raw beauty – turquoise waters, white-sand beaches, and sunsets that will make you want to never return home.
The Leeward Islands offer five-star dining and out-of-this-world shopping, especially on the billionaire’s retreat of St. Barts. The capital is a small harbor town called Gustavia, and it is home to chic resorts, high fashion, art galleries, and more.
If you prefer diving and snorkeling in a gorgeous, remote location, then put the island of Saba on your itinerary. This five-square-mile outpost is home to unbelievable coral formations, dolphins, sharks, and turtles.
On Antigua, you can reach one of its best beaches on a scenic 90-minute hike through the lush tropical rainforest. For snorkeling and bodysurfing, head to Half Moon Bay, home to blue waves and cool beach bars. We recommend the grilled fish and, of course, rum cocktails. On Anguilla, you’ll find the only restaurant in the Caribbean certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana – basically the arbiters of authentic Neapolitan pizza – in a tiny wooden shack. Try the hand-made pasta and seasonal gelato, too.
If you make it to St. Kitts, visit Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage site is a massive hilltop compound featuring barracks, citadels and ramparts from the 17th and 18th centuries.
And over on Nevis, great beaches await. Oualie Beach on the northern coast is lined with palms and offers beautiful blue water and a small pier. There’s also Pinney’s Beach – one of the most famous in the Caribbean, with a long stretch of golden sand that appears to stretch endlessly.
If this sounds like your type of vacation, 26 North Yachts offers a range of yachts for charter in the Leeward Islands. With a crew of experienced professionals on board, you can sit back and relax while enjoying the comfort and amenities of your yacht.
