The Windward Islands are mostly volcanic, with rugged mountain scenery which makes for astounding panoramic views. Each island is rare and beautiful in its own right and on a charter of the Caribbean guests are certain to find an island to suit them. Surrounded by a plethora of reefs and cays, the Windwards are a glorious stretch of islands which make up the Lesser Antilles. With a myriad of beautiful rivers and streams which help to keep the soil rich, this stunning archipelago provides the perfect conditions for the flourishing agricultural industry which is the backbone for this charming cluster of islands.

The vibrant islets of the Windward Islands consist of Martinique, Saint Lucia, Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago. Martinique is an excellent island location for sun-worshippers, food lovers and nature enthusiasts whereas St Lucia offers more opportunities for adrenaline fuelled fun, with hiking trails, magnificent rainforests and powerful landscapes dominating this verdant isle. St Vincent and the Grenadines are typically mentioned in the same breath, boasting mountain peaks and black sandy beaches, these islands are home to abundant coral reefs and are popular amongst divers of all levels. Grenada is the southernmost Windward Island and is brimmed with the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg which has led to its nickname “the spice island”.

Although the Windward Islands are not as developed as the Leeward Islands, charterers are lured here every year for their stunning coastlines and stretches of sandy beaches. With excellent scuba diving opportunities, hiking in the rainforest and volcanic hills waiting to be explored there is never a dull moment chartering this area of picture perfect islands in the Caribbean.

The charter season for the Windward Islands is much the same as the Leeward Islands running from November to July. These islands offer a stunning and varied tropical refuge and are the Caribbean's best-kept yacht charter secret.
