Antigua & Barbuda Yacht Charter
Lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Antigua, a place which is perfect for cruising, with constantly trade-winds and enough harbours to explore. The sister island of Antigua, Barbuda which in Spanish means “ancient”, has long beautiful shell laden beaches. For centuries Antigua & Barbuda has tugged mightily at the hearts of explorers and boaters, as they are truly a natural mosaic.
On Antigua, life is a beach. Its corrugated coasts cradle scores of perfect little strands lapped by beguiling blue water, while the sheltered bays have provided refuge for everyone from Admiral Nelson to pirates and yachters. If you can tear yourself away from that towel, you’ll discover that there’s a distinct English accent to this classic Caribbean island with its narrow roads, candy-colored villages and fine historic sights.
If life on Antigua is a beach, Barbuda is a beach. One smooth, pink-tinged strand hemming the reef-filled waters. Birds, especially the huffing and puffing frigates, greatly outnumber residents on this perfect Caribbean dream island. All of the beaches in Barbuda are hypnotic strips of pristine powdery white sand perfect for strolling, swimming and chilling. The longest one is 17-Mile-Beach, also known as Palm Beach, which stretches along the western side of the narrow strip of land hemming in Codrington Lagoon. Coco Point in the south is just another sublime view.
