For addicts of fine sand, turquoise water and tranquility: Net Boat, Lagoon distributor based in the Caribbean, offers an overview of the Lesser Antilles. Watch out!
The steady trade winds blowing, the tropical climate … the Lesser Antilles and their chain of islands offer all ingredients for successful navigation. Around twenty miles between islands make it possible to fully enjoy the pleasure of sailing. Then, with the leeward islands, you can appreciate the calm to anchor in a turquoise water bay.
The bay of Grande Anse d’Arlet is a wonderful anchorage of the Martinique leeward coast. The white sand beach is lovely, and you can admire many turtles swimming in the bay. Beautiful areas of snorkeling. Mooring on buoys. Not to mention the Salines Beach and if you want to play Robinson Crusoe you have the anchoring places of the windward coast, the ilets du Robert : ilet Thierry, ilet Oscar, ilet Long.

The Tobago Cays is a beautiful anchorage with a large coral reef acting as a protection against swell. Turquoise waters, snorkeling on the big coral reef, crayfish parties organized by local fishermen… Each anchorage is a postcard. This is the ultimate cruising destination in the Southern Caribbean.
Les Saintes, introduced as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Here tranquility is a priority. Do not forget to enjoy a “torment of love”, local pastry that you find easily when strolling on the waterfront. Mooring on buoy.
