This Christmas avoid the tourist crowds and explore the Caribbean on your own floating hotel. Luxury yacht charter guests have the liberty of being able to cruise from one anchorage to another at liberty, getting to islands and bays only accessible by yacht.
Experiencing the Caribbean on a luxury charter yacht is all about relaxation ... the sun is hot, the skies are blue, the sea is warm and the beaches are plentiful and postcard-perfect. A dream holiday for you and your family.
Your luxury charter is your passport to paradise on days you wish to recline on secluded sandy beaches or wallow in the shallows of largely uninhabited coves.
Here are Luxury Charter Group's pick of just a few sensational, secluded beaches accessible only by boat. For more suggestions and all the expert advice on charter in the Caribbean, one of the world's most covetable cruising grounds, get in touch with Luxury Charter Group.
Trunk Bay, St. John, US Virgin Islands
Its status as a national park means St. John is considered the most beautiful of the US Virgin Islands. There is no airport, so the only way to reach the island is by boat. Trunk Bay in particular has limpid blue water that is ideal for snorkeling and revelling in the tranquility. Seats and barbeques are the only traces of civilization and come in handy if you want a beach picnic.
Stocking Island, The Exumas
Make time to drop anchor at Stocking Island, four miles off of the northeast coast of Great Exuma Island. There are two restaurants, a hotel and 10 full-time inhabitants, but for divers, the blue hole at Hurricane Hole is a must-do. Another lure is the Chat 'n' Chill restaurant which is only accessible by boat. You can swim with stingrays that come in to feed on pieces of conch from the conch salad hut, or chomp on a plate of their famous conch burger, barbequed ribs or grilled chicken as you take in the tropical scenery from a deck chair or hammock on the beach or grab and go back to your charter yacht!
Colombier Bay, St Barths
Colombier Bay (or Anse de Colombier) offers a quiet alternative to the more vibrant beaches on the island. Accessible by tender or by two walking tracks, Colombier Bay is one of the best picnic spots in the Caribbean. As part of the Réserve Naturelle Saint-Barthelemy, it is a great spot for diving or snorkeling and the Kayali wreck attracts an enormous array of marine life.
Canouan means 'the island of tortoises'. Part of the Caribbean archipelago of St Vincent and the Grenadines (which is made up of 32 isles and cays that also comprise Mustique and Palm Island), Canouan is just five square miles across but is made up of 1,200 lush acres and is home to a large coral reef. South of Raffles along the windward coast, Windward Bay and Friendship Bay have idyllic, white sand beaches. The beach at Windward Bay also has interesting volcanic rock formations. On the leeward coast, Charlestown Bay is popular with yachts, and in the west, South Glossy Beach is sublime.
Tobago Cays, Grenadines
The Tobago Cays in the Southern Grenadines is a marine park comprising five small, uninhabited islands with coral reefs and picturesque lagoons with green turtles, colourful fish and crystal clear waters. It's an idyllic yachting anchorage, a dream for scuba divers, a paradise for beachcombers, and has been a film location for Pirates of the Caribbean.
Harbour Island, Bahamas
Long and narrow Harbour Island, east of the capital Nassau, has miles of shoreline featuring stunning pink and white sand beaches and secluded coves as well as massive coral reefs, a snorkeler's paradise!
Abaco Island, Bahamas
An island that boasts many beautiful beaches. One of our favourite's is Tahiti Beach. An isolated gem only accessible by boat (or on foot), you can be sure that you'll find a stretch of soft white sand here to call your own. With crystal clear calm waters, you won't be able to stay out of the sea here.
