Virgin Islands – the BVI and US Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are considered by many to be the ultimate charter destination in the Caribbean for both sail and motor yachts. An archipelago of 60 islands and cays, including Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Anegada and Virgin Gorda, its famed turquoise waters offer the full range of charter yacht experiences: diving, fishing, sailing and swimming, as well as unique onshore activities that cover culture, cuisine, history and boutique shopping.
The largest island in this volcanic chain, Tortola is home to beautiful beaches, tranquil moorings, ruins of forts and mines, nature preserves and very hospitable locals, while Virgin Gorda comprises world-class marinas, chic resorts as well as the huge granite boulders and grottoes known as 'The Baths'.
There are three US Virgin Islands which float in a turquoise coloured stretch of ocean that is sheltered, calm and abounding in sea life. St Croix boasts spectacular snorkelling and diving and its share of gourmet restaurants.
As well as significant tracts of National Park, St John has fascinating boutiques, restaurants and bars.
St Thomas is the most cosmopolitan island with the best shopping in the Caribbean,while still offering magical beaches like Magens Bay and secluded anchorages with backdrops of mangroves and tropical forest.
St Barts (St Barths)
St Barts is a fascinating blend of Caribbean informality and French flamboyance, bursting with options for savouring the best in restaurants, bars, boutiques and culture in its capital Gustavia. Along with luxury villas, sophisticated waterfront resorts and an alluring nightlife, St Barts is just as blessed with unspoilt natural beauty in its deserted beaches, azure waters and humble fishing villages.
From vibrant beaches with bars and restaurants to secluded bays and coves where snorkelling is sheer delight, the beaches of St Maarten are just one of its attractions. Inland, its rainforest-covered mountains are home to small villages who practise their island customs and there are a myriad of shopping, cultural and other experiences which convey its Dutch and French heritage.
With a heady blend of French and English culture, Grenada, known as the "Island of Spice", is the gateway to the unspoiled cruising grounds of the Grenadines.
No jet skis, waverunners, or spearfishing are permitted here, which make this group of six islands the ideal destination for a completely relaxing yacht charter vacation. This is the Caribbean dreams are made of: exotic flowers, tropical fruit, succulent food and fascinating locales such as the Tobago Cays, Salt Whistle Bay, Mustique and Bequia. Whether you seek deserted beaches fringed with palms with reefs for diving and barbeques under the stars, or wish to savour seafood and cocktails near the waterfront homes of rocks stars and royalty, the Grenadines has something for everyone.
Their proximity to Florida means the Bahamas are a popular getaway to escape the US winter, and its balmy climate makes it a year round magnet for yachts from all over the world.With all the modern amenities of the mainland, the Bahamas still retain that laid-back Caribbean way of life and flavour in their island culture and warm welcome.
There are more than 700 islands, protected by an immense reef, with all manner of attractions: from secluded anchorages off glimmering white beaches where snorkelling, game fishing and just soaking up the sun are on offer, to 5-star luxury resorts, spas, boutiques and world-class golf courses.
