Leeward Islands

The Leeward Islands are located in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. These islands, most of which have been shaped by active volcanoes, include Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Anguilla, Nevis, the Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe, St. Maarten and Saint-Barthelemy. This group of islands was given their name because they are in the “lee” of prevailing tradewinds, making them a fabulous destination for your next yacht charter adventure. The best time to enjoy the Leeward Islands is between November and July when the climate boasts perfect temperatures, calm crystal waters, and consistent winds. Each of the islands offers a unique adventure, which is why a charter yacht is an ideal way to experience the Leeward Islands. From the chic French elegance of Saint-Barthelemy to the colorful coral reefs and white sand beaches of Anguilla, the diverse variety allows you the luxury of experiencing every island’s rich culture.
