A Sailing Vacation in the Caribbean to Rejuvenate the Mind, Body & Soul

Aug 17, 2007
If you want to really appreciate the beauty of Caribbean islands the best way to go about it is sailing across the islands. And believe me most of the lovers of Caribbean islands firmly claim that Caribbean islands were created keeping in mind the sailing tourists. Most of the Caribbean islands are within miles of each other and when you leave an island you can easily get a view of the other island at a distance. It looks so beautiful-an island turning from a speck to a huge landmass.

During your Caribbean sailing there is no lack of coves and small islands to anchor. So, when you go for Caribbean sailing you are actually going to explore much more. And with that the number of things you can do is really staggering. Right from sailing to snorkeling to scuba-diving, to sunbathing to anything that you want to do.

Sailing is one of the main money earners for the locals in the Caribbean islands and as such you would find a number of good sailing packages offered by the locals here. You can easily find boats, yachts, catamarans and trimarans could be easily found here. And if you wish they can provide you with shipping lessons or they could also act as shipping crew on board.

British Virgin proves to be the most popular destination for Caribbean sailing. Tortola is the largest island here and also has a small airport. The islands here boast of myriad marine life as well as good facilities for tourists and as such these islands are crowded throughout the year. Caribbean Sea presents the ideal condition for sailing. The presence of numerous panoramic islands and the presence of easterly trade winds blowing across the Caribbean islands present ideal condition for sailing.

If you are ready for Caribbean sailing, never forget British Virgin Islands. It is perhaps one of the best sailing destinations around. It is also one of the safest sailing areas in the world. And you can do anything according to your tastes such as snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming or just sunbathing.

Never forget that there are over 7000 islands in the Caribbean Sea and you would never be short of islands to sail to here. St. Martin is generally the place to go after your first or second yacht charter. The next destinations could be the beautiful islands of Saint Barth and Anguilla.

And if you believe me rocking throughout the night, visit Antigua and Barbuda. Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent, and the Grenadines should also come under your radar. It is always the best thing to explore un-chartered places. That is what Caribbean sailing is all about.

So, first thing first, contact your travel agent or scour for a good yacht and sailing company in the Caribbean islands. And yes, you can find many such travel agencies online. That would make the task of booking one a lot easier and convenient.
