Falmouth Harbour - Carlisle Bay
welcome to antigua
Board the yacht in Falmouth Harbour on the beautiful island of Antigua. Falmouth Harbour is a stone’s throw away from the famous Nelson's Dockyard, an old British colonial naval station. Spend the afternoon exploring the dockyard with a local guide, then take a trip up the mountain to Shirley Heights for a fantastic sunset. Later, arrive at Carlisle Bay on the south western tip of the island, and enjoy the wellbeing spa and fine dining at the luxury Carlisle Bay resort.
Carlisle Bay - Montserrat
Cruise to Montserrat and anchor in Rendezvous Bay on the north-west side of the island for a day of watersports and exploring. With few visitors, this bay is pristine and free of development. Two thirds of Montserrat was engulfed in ash when the Soufriere volcano erupted in 1995, and much still remains submerged. It has been slowly coming back to life and offers a unique tranquillity and friendly locals. Visit the volcano or the partially buried city of Plymouth, the Caribbean's answer to Pompeii.
Montserrat - St Kitts
Tee off in style
Enjoy an early morning cruise to the unspoilt island of St Kitts, with pristine beaches and historical sites such as Brimstone Hill Fortress and National Park. For golf enthusiasts, St Kitts is home to the 18 hole Royal St Kitts Golf Course, right on the water’s edge. Tie up overnight in Christophe Harbour, a new marina set in a natural harbour.
St Kitts - Nevis
After a short cruise, arrive on Nevis. Explore the island's stunning plantation houses reimagined into luxury hotels. Take the strenuous climb up Nevis Peak to be rewarded with sweeping views over Antigua, Montserrat and other islands. Wander the Asian-inspired Botanical Gardens. Nevis is also perfect for horseback riding on the beach or hiking trails before the sun is high in the noonday sky.
Nevis - St Maarten
Holland meets France
Sint Maarten is the French side of the island also known as St. Martin to those from The Netherlands. Take your choice of either culture in Caribbean style, with pretty beaches on the French side, substantial marinas on the Dutch side and everything from casinos to fine dining in between. Watersports are an option here too.
St Maarten - Anguilla
laid back life
Anguilla, to the north, is a fantastic place to spend a beach day. This exclusive island attracts far fewer crowds than you’ll find on Sint Maarten, as well as some higher-end restaurants. Save some time after sunset to visit The Dune for live reggae and rum punch with Bankie Banx, Anguilla's answer to Bob Dylan.
Anguilla - St Barths
Hello St Tropez
On to St. Barts, the St. Tropez of the Caribbean. Gustavia Harbour is your entry point to fine shops, boutiques and restaurants. Send the kids snorkeling while you browse the Cartier, Hermes, Louis Vuitton and more along the waterfront streets. Harborfront cocktails are a must.
St Barths - Antigua
Wake in Antigua and enjoy a leisurely breakfast and some last-minute souvenir shopping in Nelson’s Dockyard before disembarking.
This itinerary takes you to some of the Caribbean's best loved spots, including St Barths and Antigua.
