Windward Islands

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 the Caribbean Sea is calmer on the leeward side. As a result, the more excellent beaches are on the leeward side of many of the islands.

The French island of Martinique is north of St. Lucia, followed by St. Vincent and the Grenadines, then Grenada. Each island has its charm. Since the windward islands are near to one another, in one week of sailing, you will experience many different cultures.

To sail the windward islands is to experience the Caribbean. Enjoy a roti on the beach in Bequia under the sea grape trees. Drink a local Carib beer. Watch fishermen in colorful fishing boats bring freshly caught fish and lobster, which they will cook on the beach for you.
