Caribbean Itinerary | Antigua

Antigua

A 7 day sailing itinerary

Day 1

Jolly Harbour

Jolly Harbour is usually the starting point of all bareboat charters, the harbour offers provisioning spots, a sheltered harbour, bars, restaurants and a spa to relax prior to your yacht charter.

Day 2

Dickenson Bay

Sublime Yachts recommends that on the first day of your charter you set sail to Dickenson Bay, located on the North of the island. The bay is a long stretch of white sand. This is well known as one of Antigua’s best beaches.

Day 3

Low Bay, Barbuda

Set sail to the home of some of the best natural wildlife on the globe. Low Bay has the most famous beach on Barbuda.

Barbuda was mildly affected by Hurricane Irma in 2016. However there is still the most amazing wildlife to see so don’t miss out on heading up to Barbuda if the winds are on your side. Be very careful of the shallow reefs whilst heading up to Low Bay.

The sand in Low Bay is pink and there is a sanctuary which homes around 100,000 birds. Do some diving on the reefs as they unspoilt, with a lot of natural coral.

There is also a historical museum, Barbuda Museum.

Day 4

Coco Point | Barbuda

The final stop in Barbuda is the southern tip of Coco Point where there is 2.5 miles of white sand beaches, reef-protected swimming and very blue waters.

This is the most relaxing stop on your Antigua yachting itinerary. Visit Coco Point Lodge restaurant for an intimate setting for your meal on the beach. 

Day 5

Green Island and Nonsuch Bay, Antigua

For the fifth day of the charter, split your time between Green Island and Nonsuch Bay. You will set sail from Barbuda in the morning back to the Eastern shoreline of Antigua.

Green Island is unspoilt, uninhabited and relaxing. After spending the morning catching the sun and enjoying the sands of Green Island be sure to head to Nonsuch bay for more activities including kitesurfing, paddle-boarding and hiking.

Nonsuch Bay is the perfect place for windsurfing, offering some of the best-sheltered winds for such activities. 

Day 6

English Harbour | Nelson’s Dockyard

Last but no means least, English Harbour will be your final destination for the charter. This is one of the largest and most famous marinas in the world. There are two marinas both English Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard. The British influence is very prevalent in this area.

Nelson’s is culturally very rich with large yachts, superb bars and restaurants, nautical museums. Be sure to check out Shirley Height’s with a Caribbean cocktail to watch the sunset
