Areas for sailing in the Caribbean Sea
The Spicy Caribbean. That’s exactly Grenada. A lush, green, mountainous island with a wild jungle interior and the true Caribbean life on the coast with the warmest seas and beautiful diving. The windward side of Grenada provides a rich underwater life on a coral reef. Grenada is more suitable for experienced yachtsmen and is ideal for one-way sailing to St Vincent or St Lucia.

Diamond of the Caribbean. Volcanic island, rainforest, a boiling lake and thermal waterfalls. Permanent sweeping winds, unrivalled panoramas, picturesque harbours, inland voyages of discovery, friendly joints and Caribbean cuisine that will enchant you. Saint Lucia, with an area of 616 km square, has a population of 174 000. The head of this island is Queen Elizabeth II. The main export item is bananas, which suggests that agriculture is the second most important form of livelihood, right after tourism.
Experience the sweeping winds between the islands and ocean waves, or enjoy the tranquility of the windward shore, palm beaches, picturesque bars, and undemanding but exciting snorkelling. The ideal place to head out from to nearby islands such as St Vincent, Tobago Cays, Mustique, and many more.
Saint Lucia has a variety of flora and fauna. You might come across one of the 50 specimens of the Amazona Versicolor, or Saint Lucia Parrot, which almost became extinct in the 1970s due to the hurricanes that raged here at that time. Despite that, in some cases this parrot can even be bred in captivity, its price is incalculable. Because this species of the Amazona Versicolor parrot lives only on the island of St. Lucia, it has become its national symbol.

Even nature lovers will find a lot to engage them here. In 2004, the two peaks of Gros and Petit Pitons were entered into the UNESCO World Heritage List. They originated 40 000 years ago and today make up the majority of a largely protected landscape area.
