Leeward Islands Itinerary
You won’t remember the last time you felt this unfettered and relaxed, with only miles of powder white sand and endless blue ocean on your agenda. A vacation in the Caribbean is essential to understanding the word “vacation” or “getaway” and the Leeward Islands are perfect place to start. From the luxury of St. Barts to the awe-inspiring geography of St. Kitts the diversity experienced is nothing short of intoxicating. Stroll through colonial villages one day and the next deep dive to discover hidden underwater treasures and pirate coves. The Leeward Islands are the Caribbean’s happy-go-lucky child; and you won’t want to leave.
DAY 1 — ST. MAARTEN/ST. MARTIN
Your luxury yacht charter will begin in the iconic Simpson Bay in St. Maarten. Like sisters, the island of two similar but distinctly different halves, the Dutch side – St. Maarten – and, the French side – St. Martin. Spend the afternoon shopping in St. Maarten’s capital Philipsburg and in the evening hop over to St. Martin to enjoy some incredible French fare.
DAY 2 — ST. BARTS
Miles away from Paris, St. Barts still embodies the Parisian lavishness which can be seen in its cuisine, shopping and lifestyle. Renowned as a winter haven for the elite, there are few better places to spend the day. Head to Nikki Beach for afternoon cocktails or find a picture-perfect spot on the sand at Anse de Grande Saline, one of St. Barts most-revered beaches. In the evening, enjoy a meal with a view at On the Rocks in the always impressive Eden Rock hotel.
DAY 3 — ST. KITTS
St. Kitts is a nature lover’s paradise. Visit the area’s beautiful tropical rainforests or explore Mount Liamuiga, a stratavolcano with a peak reaching 3,792 ft. Down below is Brimstone Shallows where the crystalline waters offer a clear view of the numerous fish and reef sharks. With so many outdoor activities, at St. Kitts you’ll never be bored.
DAY 4 — ST. KITTS
Golf enthusiasts will be keen to play a few rounds at the Royal St. Kitts Gold Club, an 18-hole championship course. For those who’d rather get seaweed scrub than a hole-in-one, the Emerald Mist Spa offers a day of pampering and relaxation. After separate days of self-indulgence, dress to the nines and visit the Casino at the St. Kitts Marriott where you can try to win back the money you’ve spent on your day.
DAY 5 — NEVIS
The unassuming coin-shaped island of Nevis is full of history, rustic charm and beautiful landscapes. Bike, hike or go birdwatching in the many lush forests or while climbing Mt. Nevis. While exploring, keep an eye out for Green Vervet Monkeys-little primates with fur more gold than green at the tips of their tales and highlighting their faces. For history buffs, learn more about Horatio Nelson or the award-winning musical based American, Alexander Hamilton.
DAY 6 — ST. EUSTATIUS (STATIA)
With the former slogan “The Caribbean’s Hidden Treasure”, St. Eustatius aka Statia has below its surface a wealth of gems to explore. Colorful reefs, teeming marine life, rusting wrecks, and a majority of the Lower Town submerged result in a diving and snorkeling experience that’s hard to match. If you’ve had your fill of underwater adventures, visit Quill, an extinct volcano for an afternoon hike.
DAY 7 — ST. MAARTEN/ST. MARTIN
Arriving back at St. Maarten, there are a smattering of beaches to enjoy — more than 30 around the island. Head for Cupecoy Beach to enjoy the sun and sand or take the jet skis out for one last run before disembarking.
