1. Nevis

Only a short journey from St Kitts, the people of Nevis enjoy have captivating way of life. Offering the best of both worlds, beach-dwellers should head to Pinney’s to enjoy a long, sandy beach, and the more adventurous can challenge themselves with Nevis Peak, the island’s dormant volcano.

Old-fashioned towns such as capital Charlestown and its sophisticated plantation-house buildings have a traditional charm, with features from the 17th and 18th century excellently maintained over the years. Establishments such as the Montpelier Plantation you will wander past on a St Kitts and Nevis yacht charter, take you back to a past era on the island, whilst also providing all the luxuries of modern times.

2. Harbour Island, The Bahamas

The variety a Bahamas yacht charter offers is one of the reasons it is one of the most popular Caribbean charter destinations in the world. Travel to the Out Islands for tranquillity whilst relaxing on the most beautiful white-sand beaches, surrounded by aqua blue waters, sampling a freshly-made conch salad or admiring the brightly-coloured buildings of this Caribbean paradise.  Harbour Island in particularly is ideal for peace and quiet, with Pink Sands beach an irresistible option for a day on your Bahamas charter itinerary,  made from powdered coral. Dunmore Town nearby is a chic spot for checking out the local art scene and charming cafes past the white picket fences and traditional homes of locals.

3. Baracoa, Cuba

Delve below Cuba’s tourist-friendly surface and Cuba has many secluded spots which offer the perfect private retreat from everyday life. None can compete with Baracoa, found at the far eastern end of the island, and the island’s oldest settlement.  Discover quiet golden beaches and streets lined with brightly-coloured clapboard homes and quaint cafés serving up irresistible mugs of drinking chocolate, made from locally-sourced cocoa. Mount El Yunque and the surrounding emerald-green hillsides paint a picture-perfect background to your visit, covered with lush banana, coconut and cocoa groves.

4. Montserrat

Life in Montserrat is focused in the north of the country, due to the past activity of Soufrière Hills Volcano – but travellers should not be deterred, a Monserrat yacht charter offers a unrivalled blend of striking viewpoints, exotic wildlife and diving opportunities. With a superyacht equipped with all the state-of-the-art diving and snorkelling gear you could wish for, all those on a charter vacation have to worry about is spotting the country’s rare national bird, the yellow-chested Montserrat oriole as you enjoy the island’s relaxed pace of life.
