Caribbean Sea
Luxury Yacht Charter Destination

The world turns a little slower in the Caribbean. The gentle, turquoise waves pull at more than just the powdery, soft shores; they strip away modern society. The salt of life is so rich in this tropical paradise, you can taste it in every breeze that brushes your face as you lie back on your yacht mesmerised by the blue of the sky, the lush green vegetation and the purest of white sands. The only thing more welcoming than the bright, colourful landscape are the people, whose pure and authentic lifestyle has been shaped by a history that encompasses everything from colonialism to pirates.

Thousands of islands over 28 island countries, can be found in the Caribbean Sea stretching over a 1,000 miles between North and South America, and they are perfect for exploring by yacht. There are roughly five regions of the Caribbean, beginning with The Bahamas, working south you will then find the Leeward Islands, the Windward Islands and finally the Greater and Lesser Antilles.

If exploring beneath the waterline is one of the main things you want to experience during your yachting holiday, the small island of Bonaire is a must to visit. Sitting in the centre of the ‘ABC’ islands of the Lesser Antilles, it has, like Aruba and Curaçao, strong Dutch influences evident in the brightly coloured architecture and distinctive culture. Bonaire is one of the most environmentally aware islands in the Caribbean. It has strict diving industry regulations to ensure reefs stay in pristine condition, with Bonaire National Marine Park also protecting nearby islands including the small uninhabited Klein Bonaire, home to turtle nesting grounds and occasionally flamingos.

Set just 15 miles north of the coast of Venezuela, the tiny Lesser Antilles island of Aruba is packed full of world-class beaches, gourmet restaurants and Vegas-style casinos, all wrapped up in a European influenced, cosmopolitan lifestyle and vibrant Caribbean flair. Aruba's beaches offer the idyllic Caribbean dream: miles of brilliant white sand surrounded by calm, clear water that is perfect for snorkelling. Palm Beach, frequently voted one of the best beaches in the Caribbean and the world, is probably the most famous.

Barbados is loved by everyone for a reason - it's one of the more laid-back islands thanks to the famous friendliness of the Barbadians, and they’re always keen to share their culture with visitors, including their great food that combines European, African and East Indian influences for a unique mix. The island itself is beautiful and boasts acres of pretty tropical flowers and trees as well as coral beaches and clear waters. Those interested in the history of the island should visit Sunbury Great House for an example of the large plantations that used to dominate the island, while families will enjoy submarine tours that take you to shipwrecks, mini golf, wildlife reserves and underground caves.

St Lucia has it all, the towering Piton Mountains, beautiful beaches and secluded resorts set into lush hillsides overlooking the crystal clear sea. There are many hidden coves to anchor and sunbathe in, a host of fabulous spas that use their beautiful natural surroundings in their products and architecture, and a plethora of truly excellent gourmet restaurants.

The three islands of the Cayman Islands each have their own character but all offer a huge amount to keep children of all ages happy, making the country one of the best family–friendly destinations to visit. As well as being great for scuba diving, the beaches are safe – Seven Mile Beach is particularly popular and offers safe swimming and close proximity to local amenities – and the activities are endless. Children from as young as eight can take scuba diving lessons, or there are turtle farms, Stingray City pirate ships and plenty of on shore kids clubs offering fun activities.

Jamaica is one of the busiest islands in the Caribbean, offering an intense explosion of culture, nature, food and entertainment. It also has a long musical history and Jamaicans define themselves through their music, using it in rebellion, religion and weddings. Two of the most well-known are Rastafarian music, which incorporates drums, tambourines and chanting, and reggae which is loved worldwide thanks to high-profile singers like Bob Marley. As you would expect, the music scene in Jamaica continues to thrive. Hedonists should head to Negril for discos and the famous Jungle nightclub, while if you are after a more relaxed vibe visit the beach bars and reggae clubs in Montego Bay.

The vast Caribbean Sea lays out a virtual mirage of crystal-blue water inundated with idyllic islands, the cruising grounds are a haven for yachts and waterborne travellers, with a melting pot of cultural influences, enticing azure waters and beaches abound.
