For those looking to admire the “see and be seen” crowd, the Leeward Islands of Anguilla, St. Maarten,
and St. Barts cater to the jet set. More mountainous than the Virgin Islands, with a decidedly Dutch and French Flavor, an itinerary encompassing these islands is a wonderful choice. Have a lobster BBQ on the beach in Anguilla or tie up Mediterranean style to the quay in Gustavia, St. Barts for a quick shopping spree at Hermes, Gucci, or Louis Vuitton. There are numerous world class restaurants to choose from, such as Maya’s or the Hotel Eden Roc on St. Barts, or just relax on board and let your five star chef delight you with culinary expertise on your chartered yacht from Taylor’d Yacht Charters.
Further south in the Leewards, lies the lush greenery of Antigua, Barbuda, Nevis, and St. Kitts. Antigua is an excellent embarkation point for a charter, as your yacht may either cruise north to St. Maarten or south to the Grenadines. The base of the British Colonial naval fleet, Antigua boasts 365 beaches, one for every day of the year. There is much history here in Antigua with a dockyard named for Admiral Horatio Nelson.
