Bring Our List of The Prettiest Harbors Along On Your Caribbean Yacht Charter.
San Juan Harbor -
San Juan Harbor stands in a tiny islet that guards the entrance to the distinctive ‘Old San Juan.’ This seven-square-block section was instated nearly 100 years before the Mayflower arrived in Massachusetts. Old San Juan is a place where historical sights stand juxtaposed against the land’s modern pulse. Take in the stunning views of the city as you sail along the bay on your boat rental, or indulge in an unforgettable Caribbean sunset with romantic views of Old San Juan from the water.
St. George’s Harbor -
As one of the most beautiful and vibrant ports in the world, St. George’s harbor easily made this list. St. George’s is Grenada’s waterfront capital as well as the largest harbor and city in Grenada. You’re in for a treat as magnificent sights extend for miles in every direction.
The horseshoe-shaped harbor is surrounded by a stunning hillside town that, despite its popularity as a tourist destination, famed August Carnival, and world-renowned calypso beats, manages to preserve its history and natural beauty.
English Harbor -
History buffs won’t want to miss a boat rental adventure to English Harbor. Originally developed as a base for the British Navy in the late 18th century, English Harbor is centered on Antigua's historic district. The dockyard was gradually abandoned in the nineteenth century and eventually closed in 1889. Today the dockyard has been completely restored and is the only Georgian dockyard in the world. Dozens of historic sights overlook the harbor, including Clarence House, (originally built as a residence for the future King William IV) and Shirley Heights, which houses the partially-restored barricades of the harbor's colonial observation post. Steer your Caribbean yacht charter captain over there on a Sunday, when the local bars host barbeque revelries and live music.
Gustavia Harbor -
Gustavia, the main town and capital of the island of Saint Barths, is a common stop for cruise ships and mega yacht boat rentals looking for a slice of France in the Caribbean. Gustavia Harbor is surrounded by stylish boutiques, topless beaches, waterfront restaurants, and pulsing nightlife, all wrapped in a warm French vibe that envelopes you like the sea.
