Why are the Caribbean one of the best destinations for yachtsmen?
Who hasn’t dreamed one day of sailing on a sailboat in the Caribbean? For many boaters, the Caribbean islands and the Caribbean Sea represent a great playground. You can sail freely from island to island in less than a day.
You can also enjoy a day in a cove with your family. Or a fishing trip with friends in a motorboat that will give you access to the wildest corners. The Lesser Antilles offer a succession of magnificent islands. These are breathtaking landscapes. Such as Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe and many others! Names that evoke images and paradisiacal sceneries. Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine yourself at anchor in turquoise water in front of a white or black sand beach, depending on your wishes. You can see in the background a luxuriant forest in the marked reliefs. You will smell tropical flowers accompanied by a light breeze that caresses your face. Then you just have to go down in your dinghy to reach a virgin beach to rest or a pontoon that will lead you to the local market, colorful and alive. Fruits, vegetables, spices, fresh fish… Make your choice for lunch or let yourself be tempted by a small beach hut to enjoy a ti-punch followed by a grilled lobster with your feet in the sand!
Each island has its own history and identity
Each stopover is a total discovery. The various landscapes allow you to vary the activities and pleasures. You can go for a walk in the forest with the sound of birds singing while going up a river bed until you discover a magnificent waterfall in a green setting. The next day, you can relax on the beach with a coconut punch. Then, snorkel with your mask and snorkel and observe beautiful fish of all colors between the coral reefs. Don’t wait any longer, treat yourself to the good life in the Caribbean!
