The Windward and Leeward Islands have a magnetic pull over travellers seeking a well-established destination with an unsurpassed climate. Despite its long-founded reputation as a holiday hotspot the islands offer a comparatively undeveloped and charismatic destination. Dense rainforests up volcanic peaks, dreamy white-sand beaches flanked by crooked palms and turquoise waters home to mesmerizing coral reefs and tropical fish is the backdrop of a Caribbean holiday. A yacht charter is the best way to fully experience the island cruising lifestyle that surrounds these tropical islands.
The Leeward Islands are the more northerly in the group composed of the many smaller islands that make up the Lesser Antilles, including Anguilla, Antigua, Barbuda, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Nevis, Redonda, Saba, St. Barts, Saint Kitts, Saint Martin, Sint Eustatius, the British Virgin Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands. They are referred to as the Leeward Islands due to their location away from the trade winds.
The Windward Islands are located farther south comprised of Barbados, Grenada, the Grenadines, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Tobago and Trinidad, which are among the larger of the Lesser Antilles islands. They are referred to as the Windward Islands due to their location on the path of North-eastern trade winds.
