Christmas may be fast approaching, but there’s still time to book an idyllic Christmas yacht charter in the Caribbean. This year, why notescapethe cold of winter and head for the sunshine with a Caribbean Christmas on a luxury yacht charter?
A Caribbean Christmas is a wonderful experience- full of colour, beauty and festivities. On your Caribbean yacht charter you could cruise through the crystal clear waters of the Cayman Islands, where the locals celebrate Christmas by spreading powder-white sand from the beaches on their lawns to replicate snow. The world-class diving and shopping on offer in the Cayman Islands also makes this archipelago a great choice for a Christmas yacht charter.
For those wanting to stay on U.S. soil over Christmas, the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico is considered to have one of the world’s greatest traditions of celebrating Christmas, with dawn services, carols and dancing ,all part of an immense celebration that runs right through December. Puerto Rico is a growing yacht charter destination, with palm-lined beaches, coral reefs and lush rainforest drawing more yachts each year.
The gloriously beautiful Virgin Islands are considered to be among the best yacht charter destinations for a Caribbean Christmas, with the decorated streets coming alive with parades, displays and singing. There are beautifully lit boat parades to be discovered in St Croix and Virgin Gorda, as well as a happy party vibe in the famous sailor bars of Tortola and Jost van Dyke. Christmas shoppers will be very content in St Thomas’ boutique stores, while all will be astonished at the beauty of these Caribbean jewels as they dive Wreck Alley, snorkel Virgin Gorda’s Baths or eat grilled lobster on the beach in Anegada.
Of course, you don’t have to get involved in the local celebrations to enjoy a wonderful Christmas in the Caribbean. You may prefer to enjoy your Caribbean yacht charter by casting off, cruising slowly through the tropical islands of the Caribbean and spending your days wakeboarding, diving and exploring or simply relaxing on the yacht. Your private yacht chef will cook up a Christmas lunch you’ll never forget, and the young at heart will enjoy sumptuous barbeques and fun games on the beach set up by the crew. While it may seem unusual to spend Christmas in the sun, you’ll no doubt soon get used to it as you lie in a deckchair, drinking champagne and soaking up the warm rays of winter.
