1 - The British Virgin Islands

Around sixty large and small islands make up the British Virgin Islands, a paradise for easy unhurried cruising. With a calm sea, constant trade winds and numerous anchorages very close to one another, the BVI are a perfect destination for less experienced cruisers, or families cruising with young children...

This maze of islands, 50km long and 25 wide, offers white sand beaches bordered with palm trees, and clear water, which allows you to enjoy the particularly rich underwater life to the full.


THE DESTINATION’S ‘PLUS’

Ideal for a first experience in a catamaran: numerous anchorages, with very short distances between them, and more often than not, on a mooring buoy.

NOT TO BE MISSED

The Baths, the ‘Treasure Island’ cave (The Caves – Norman Island), Anegada and its coral reef.


 

2 - The Grenadines

The Grenadines archipelago is a real sailing paradise: from Bequia to Grenada, via the famous Tobago Cays, there is no lack of perfect anchorages and cruising is particularly pleasant and easy. By studying the charts closely, nothing is simpler than finding your own little spot, with no neighbors in the anchorage...

All that remains is to choose your departure base: from Martinique you will have a wonderful passage of around a hundred miles before arriving in paradise, like a real discoverer. Otherwise, there is nothing to stop you chartering your catamaran directly on the spot... The rest is pure pleasure!
