The geographical location of the Caribbean islands makes yachting popular regardless of the season. A large group of islands, called the Antilles, stretched a long chain between North and South America. From the northeast, the archipelago is washed by the Atlantic Ocean.

The islands combine natural exoticism with man-made landmarks built for tourist purposes. There are a large number of pompous colonial-style buildings, palaces and museums, entertainment places. Tourists have access to incredible landscapes and organized entertainment.
Territorial features of the Antilles
The Antilles includes more than 50 islands of different sizes, which differ from each other by natural data, leisure style, and conditions of stay. The reason for the diversity is the degree of development of the territory and the belonging of parts of dry land to a specific state. Each island is a separate state or island part of a separate country.
Geographically, the Caribbean archipelago is divided into Large (4 close to the mainland of the island) and the Lesser Antilles. The Big Islands include Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti and Puerto Rico, which have their own ports and personal fleet. Yachting tourism here is very high, as water transport links play a pivotal role.

The round dance of small islands is a series of territories of different degrees of habitability . They are divided into leeward and windward. There are strange places and cities with developed infrastructure and a wide range of tourist services. The yacht industry is developed in the Virgin Islands, Antigua and Barbuda , Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent.
During yachting in the Caribbean, a wonderful sea holiday, filled with exotic, will definitely be remembered. Impressive underwater world with its inhabitants, lush coral reefs, stingrays, lobsters and refined beaches with coconut trees caress the eyes of travelers.
