Caribbean Overview: Variety is the spice of life

The Caribbean, with its lush, tropical islands indented with sugar-white beaches and surrounded by deep turquoise seas, continues to be a favourite for winter cruising. Idyllic beaches and secluded bays lie just around the corner from the more sophisticated pleasures of glamorous resorts and exclusive yacht clubs. It is no wonder that the Caribbean has always been - and still is - a yachting paradise.

The consistency of the trade winds throughout the long winter season, which stretches from October to March, makes for perfect cruising conditions with easy sailing distances and a surprisingly gentle climate. From the Virgin Islands in the north down to Trinidad and Tobago in the south, discover this string of tiny island states, each with its own culture, history and character.

The variety and unique appeal of each island draw visitors back year after year to explore new sights and to rediscover favourite hideaways. You will easily recognise the Caribbean influences with colourful local artwork and architecture, the beat of the reggae and salsa music, and the spicy flavours of the local dishes.

The larger islands, with mountains of volcanic origin, offer dramatic landscapes and a lively, often exhilarating, onshore experience. The spectacular crystal waters make for perfect snorkelling and diving conditions to see unforgettable marine life and coral reefs. Lush tropical rainforest, cloud-fringed mountain peaks and exotic birdlife ensure a surprise waiting at every landfall.

Lie back and soak up the sun’s warmth or dive into a world of euphoric animation where jewel like fish flit through glittering waters. Enjoy an invigorating day of water sports or explore the natural wonderland onshore dropping anchor at night for a relaxing evening of cocktails and fine dining.

As an area famous for its beautiful waterways and islands, there really is no better way to see this unforgettable part of the world than on a crewed luxury superyacht. Burgess brokers have the experience and knowledge to create a memorable charter holiday.
