When to Go on Your Caribbean Yacht Charter
The best time to visit the Caribbean for a yacht charter is between the months of December and April. These are the driest months of the year, and avoid the hurricane season that extends from June to November. Average daily highs range from 25 C to 29 C, and water temperatures are within the same range. Due to the close proximity to the equator, a Caribbean yacht charter is defined by consistent temperatures and warm, sunny weather in the dry season.
The Leeward Islands
The Leeward Islands are the northern archipelago of the Lesser Antilles Chain. This region is a hugely popular Caribbean yacht charter destination. Hotspots include Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, Saint Martin (Sint Maarten) and Saint Barts (Saint Barthélemy). A Leeward Islands yacht charter offers vibrant diversity, from the eclectic New years celebrations in Gustavia Bay, the exquisite seafood of Anguilla, the secluded beaches of Tintamarre, the waterfront restaurants of Grand Case to the surfing on the windward side beaches of Saint Barts, a Caribbean yacht charter on the Leewards really is a paradise for all.
The British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands form the Virgin Islands archipelago with the U.S. Virgin Islands and Spanish Virgin Islands. The BVIs consist of around 60 islands and cays, of which only around 15 are inhabited. While most islands are volcanic, the dramatic landscape is as diverse and hypnotic as the medley of cultures and diverse activities and retreats on offer.
Common highlights of a BVI yacht charter include the white sand beaches and sheltered bays of the capital Tortola, Virgin Gorda’s ‘The Baths’, the authentic and sumptuous lobster festival on Anegada Island, and the whale watching paradise that is Jost Van Dyke. With so many uninhabited islands and unspoilt landscapes, embarking on a unique adventure in search of untrodden islands is an easy and tempting feature of a Caribbean yacht charter, and one that is highly rewarding. For warm, hospitable cultures, diverse island landscapes, calm trade wind conditions and tropical weather, a British Virgin Islands yacht charter is ideal.
The Windward Islands
For a truly unique tropical Caribbean yacht charter, include the Windward Islands, that form part of the Lesser Antilles Islands Chain, on your Caribbean charter itinerary. These volcanic islands boast natural extremes, from towering mountain ranges to deep rainforest. Cooler and wetter than other Caribbean island groups, the Windwards offer a unique experience for nature lovers. Delicate golden and white sand beaches define Saint Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines, with dramatic black volcanic beaches also found in isolation.
