Explore- There’s plenty to discover in this untouched natural kingdom. Hike the Tet Paul Nature Trail, where you can see 186 species of birds, such as the beautiful and rare St Lucia parrot. On Dominica, known as “Nature Island,” soak in the hot springs in the middle of lush tropical forests, or check out the famous boiling lake. Trek through the Waitukubuli National Trail, the first long-distance trail in the Caribbean, winding all the way across Dominica through the dense rainforests of Morne Trois Pitons National Park and Morne Diablotins. In Grenada, journey to see St Margaret’s Falls. After a moderate hike, you can relax in the deep bathing pools beneath the plummeting waterfalls.
Nature is not all there is to explore here. Martinique hosts annual yacht races, where you’ll get to mingle with locals and yacht enthusiasts as well as experience the island’s culture firsthand. The Yole Boat Race is held in August, and Vaval is held around March and April. Both races cause quite the stir of enthusiasm. Aboard your Windward Islands yacht charter, you are sure to experience an action-packed thrill to remember.
Diving- An extravagant underwater carnival hides beneath these azure waters. Dive in the waters near Grenada and seabob beside incredible sharks. Survey the M/V Bianca C, the 600-foot former passenger liner resting 100-165 feet beneath the water, or the Bianca C shipwreck, nicknamed the Titanic of the Caribbean. For many, the hidden treasure is the Underwater Sculpture Park, which features striking sculptures that tell the story of Grenada’s history and colourful folklore.
In St. Lucia, you’ll find clusters of interesting dive sites on the leeward side. Plunge in the deep waters and delight in the dense corals and sponges bustling with a variety of brilliant fish at spots like Trou Diable (Devil’s Hole). Dive the majestic underwater volcanic peaks at Keyhole and swim with seahorses, trumpetfish, and more. There are too many dive sites to name, and you are sure to discover even more with the help of your yacht crew. So, don’t worry about the dive gear, just prepare yourself for a phenomenal underwater affair. On your Windward Islands yacht charter, your superyacht crew will take care of the rest, down to the very last detail.
Beaches- These tranquil shorelines are not lined with crowded resorts like other Caribbean islands. Anchor out at sea and snorkel the rugged shores of Champagne Beach. Keep an eye out for the magnificent whales known to frequent the area. Cruise Sugar Bay Beach, the most famous beach on the island, where you can view the breathtaking Pitons, soaring 798 meters and 750 meters high. For an even better view, ask your captain to take you parasailing. In Martinique, dock at the marina and stroll the sparkling black sands of Pointe du Bout. Afterwards, you can wander through the area’s charming shops and meet the friendly locals.
If you are visiting in March-July, go to Levera Beach for a truly awe-inspiring sight. During this time of year, Grenada’s leatherback sea turtles prepare their nests on the golden sands of this beach, which is part of the 450-acre Levera National Park in northern Grenada.
Even better, spend the day on the exclusive island of Mustique, where celebrities and Royals go to indulge in absolute luxury and privacy. Have your crew prepare a beach picnic on one of the island’s 9 beaches, like Macaroni Beach, which is consistently ranked among the top 10 beaches in the world. Tour the island’s lavish gardens and homes as well. Many royals and celebrities own land and vacation here. Discover hidden shores to call your own and watch the waves crash on the rocks, as you relish in the Windward Islands Yacht Charter of a lifetime.
History- The unique history of each one of the islands will captivate you. Walk the sprawling white sands of Pigeon Island National Park, where you can explore the remains of barracks, batteries and garrisons. Then, head over Morne Coubaril Historical Adventure Park to learn about St Lucia’s history and go ziplining or horseback riding through the lush rainforest. At La Savane des Esclaves, discover 400 years of Martinique history, as you wander through the stunning gardens. Pay a visit to Habitation Clement, which sits on over 390 acres with gorgeous gardens, a contemporary art center, and a famous rum house, all situated in the middle of several sugar cane plantations. In Bequia, crush your own sugar at the Firefly Plantation Bequia, a 280-year-old sugar mill with tropical orchards producing guava, mango, bananas, breadfruit, Bequia plums, and numerous exotic crops. These islands are brimming with historical sites for you to discover. Ask your captain for insider tips on the best locations on your Windward Islands Yacht Charter.
Dining– The Windward Islands offer flavorful dishes to satisfy even the most fastidious of appetites. Treat yourself to an intimate dinner at Jacques Waterfront Dining and have a few glasses of wine, while you watch the amber sunset. In Martinique, dine at Restaurant 1643 for delicious French or local cuisine, as well as impeccable service. Try the tuna tartare at La Mandoline, located in the Pottery Village on Trois Ilets. Afterward, you can browse the work of local artisans in nearby shops. Don’t forget, on Windward Islands Yacht Charter, five-star service and a world-class menu awaits you on your yacht as well.
The Best Time To Go- For dry weather, book your Windward Islands yacht charter in December to May.
Weather- Hurricane season is August to October, but the south Windward Islands (like Grenada) lie on the outside of the hurricane’s path. The dry season is in December to May, and the rainy season lasts from June to November. The average temperature stays around 81 F year-round.
