The Windward Islands are stunning with high mountains, lush green vegetation, waterfalls, and beautiful beaches surrounded by shimmering blue water. On the windward side, the Atlantic Ocean washes the shoreline. While on the leeward side the Caribbean Sea is calmer. As a result, the nicer beaches are on the leeward side of many of the islands.
The French island of Martinique is north of St. Lucia. Then St. Vincent and the Grenadines, followed by Grenada. Each island has its charm. So in one week of sailing, you will experience many different cultures.
