Have you ever wondered Caribbeanwhat it would be like to rise with the sun as it peeped from the ocean’s horizon? To stretch that first stretch and to breathe in the balm of an air that’s as fresh as the waves? To tiptoe outside to the sight of the gulls as they glide on the soft trade wind breezes? And what if the doors to your five-star room opened onto the crystal-blue ocean? And the smell of your breakfast wafted sweet on the air as you dipped with the sun not quite risen? And what if instead of a concrete skyline you saw mountains in tropical splendor? And a green sprinkling of islands creating a pathway through oceans as blue as the sky? Don’t worry you are not dreaming. You are in the Caribbean. Few things conjure up idyllic visions as clearly as the thought of a Caribbean sailing escape.

Martinica
Martinique Martiniqueis an island located in the eastern Caribbean Sea in the Windward Islands of the West Indies one of the hot stops for a unique Caribbean sailing escape or a magic new years day with your friends or your beloved. This overseas department of France is an integral part of the Republic. Martinique is situated between Dominica and St Lucia. The island of Martinique is mountainous and rugged and reaches its greatest height in Mt. Pelée. The capital of Martinique is Fort-de-France, the former Fort Royal. Technically an integral part or department of France, Martinique is an isle of French charm, class, culture, cuisine and chic at their Gallic best Beautiful beyond words, Martinique captured the attention of Paul Gauguin, whose paintings of Martinique are among the world's most prized treasures. Go to the secluded beaches of this French Antilles Eden and you have a dreamlike sailing vacation or an unforgettable new years day. Martinique has one of the safest and most beautiful bays in the Caribbean, which makes it a popular area for sailors and yachtsmen to take to the sea. Because the island has become a paradise for Caribbean sailing yacht charters, the sailing and yachting industry is growing at a rapid pace and more marinas have opened on the island.

MartiniqueMany Caribbean islands are synonymous with “magic,” but the kind of magic found in Martinique is, quite simply, culinary. Cooking here is an art practiced by wizardly chefs who can take something very ordinary, like spiny sea urchins, do secret things to them, and -- with just a whisper of “open sesame” to the oven door -- bring forth a soufflé that is positively spellbinding. Food sets Martinique apart from the other Caribbean islands. Here, chefs are seasoned sorcerers; elsewhere, they are just apprentices. Magic aside, Martinique also happens to be French and shows its Frenchness very noticeably through its love affair with good food. Many shops close from noon to 2:30 for the sacrosanct tradition of a copious and leisurely lunch and dinner often is a gastronomic adventure lasting all evening. Since local people dine out as a matter of course, visitors to Martinique have one of the widest choices of restaurants in the Caribbean -- more than 150.Martinica is perfectly located for a dreamlike sailing vacation in the Caribbean sailing destination or for a different new years day with your beloved or your friends.

Palmisland
Palm Island Palm Islandis a tiny resort island is just a mile from Union Island, and is a 135-acre tropical oasis of unhurried rest and stress free relaxation.

PSV
Petit St. Vincent, or PSV, Petit Saint Vincent as it is often called, is one of the world's most enchanting hideaways, and one of the favourite Caribbean sailing escape. Over its varied terrain (113-acres) twenty-two private cottages are scattered some on hillsides, some set into the sides of cliffs, some right on the beach - all absolutely heavenly. For most people the appeal of PSV is what it "does not have"- no telephones or television, no air-conditioning, no casinos or cabarets. Not even room keys. When you want nothing so much as to be alone, you simply send up the red flag on the bamboo pole outside your cottage and you are instantly furnished with that most valuable of commodities exclusive privacy. On the other hand, hoist a yellow flag and the staff are at your service, whether it's a picnic lunch served on the beach, or a night cap in your villa. There is plenty to keep the active people busy, and hammocks have been strategically placed all along the beaches for those who just want to unwind and relax. In the interest of guests' sought after privacy, access by non-guests is limited to the main building which houses the bar, restaurant and boutique. Dinner is by reservation only.

Tobago Cays
The Tobago Cays Tobago Caysare recognized as the "jewel in the crown" for marine tourism in the Southern Grenadines. It is one of the best known and most popular tourist destinations in the region. The Tobago Cays are located in the Grenadines chain of islands, in the southernmost waters of the state of St.Vincent and the Grenadines. Four of the Cays - Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Jamesby and Baradal - enclosed within the aptly-named Horseshoe Reef, while the fifth Cays - Petit Tabac - lies just to the east of the main group. Surrounding the islands are series of other reefs and shallows, including Egg Reef and World's End Reef on the eastern side, and Mayreau Gardens to the west.

Tobago CaysHistorically, the Cays also supported a small local fishing industry, giving an important local source of income and employment. Overuse from both tourism and fishing has damaged the valuable resources. To sustain livelihoods and other opportunities for future generations, the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Cays and Mayreau must be protected and preserved. The Cays have been declared a wildlife reserve by the government and all visitors are urged to preserve and protect this unique natural resource. Towards these aims, the Government of St.Vincent & the Grenadines established the Tobago Cays as a marine park to protect, conserve and improve the natural resources of the Tobago Cays. No fishing, jet skis, or anchoring of dinghies allowed.

Tortola
On the ivory sand Tortolaof Josiah's Bay, the Caribbean Sea surges and retreats to the calypso rhythm, the rolling waves betraying a therapeutic silence. Like a colossal volcanic periscope, the island of Tortola emerges from the incandescent sea, its forested peaks gazing upon the primitive archipelago that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island". Settled by the Spanish after Columbus' second expedition of 1493, the Virgin Islands soon became a battleground for pirates of the Renaissance - the small scattered islands

Tortolaproving ideal for the concealment of plundered treasures. Today the BVI has become an exploratory playground for the adventurer or holiday-maker seeking respite from the commercialism of the Carib's 'down islands'. With its abundance of marinas and watersports facilities, the BVI is well-equipped to support the growing interest in boating vacations. Like Sir Francis Drake and the infamous Blackbeard before them, today's visitors set sail from Tortola's Road Town in search of the island treasures that locals call 'Nature's Little Secrets'. While Tortola is the industrial and communications hub of the BVI, it is much more than a convenient launching point.

Union Island
Union Island Union Islandis located midway between Grenada and St. Vincent and is equidistant from Barbados, Trinidad and Martinique. Union Island has an impressive cultural background and the islanders celebrate a surprising amount of festivals throughout the year. The Roots Connection Culture Club is a newly formed cultural group on the island whose aim is to preserve the island's cultural heritage by practicing and developing their cultural art forms of drumming, dancing, singing, story telling and poetry. The annual Union Island Maroon Festival is one of the most important cultural events on the island. It is held every year in the month of May, three days before or after the full moon. This festival marks the start of the planting season, and contrary to popular belief, it is not a festival held to herald in the rains.
