Everything you need to know about your sailing trip [..]
Miramar Sailing Covers the Caribbean!
From our bases in Antigua & Grenada, we are perfectly placed to offer everything you could wish for in a Caribbean Sailing Vacation.
We understand that our idea of your perfect sailing vacation is not necessarily the same as yours. Our intention is to give you the holiday of a lifetime, and it is therefore important that we work with you to tailor your expectations to your dreams and aspirations to suit your tastes and budget.
Believe it or not, the Caribbean Island Chain comprises over 7,000 islands, islets, reefs and cays! From our two bases we are ideally situated at either end of the chain to show you the vast majority of them.
It is all about how far would you like to go, and your imagination!
Caribbean Sailing Vacatoion Holiday Options
Sun – Fortunately it shines often and brings with it warm air and gentle breezes, not to mention the all important tan!
Sea – Unbelievably clear and blue presenting great sailing conditions. Swimming, snorkelling, diving, fishing, kite boarding, surfing, are just a few of the many water activities that our waters are perfect for.
Sand – The geological formation of the chain has created both white and black sandy beaches. In some places there is even a hint of pink where sea shells have been ground down over the ages. Our sand is soft, warm and luxurious.
Sailing – Possibly the best sailing grounds in the world. The constant Trade Winds waft across the Caribbean from the east and, with minimal tides and currents, create relaxed sailing conditions that you cannot fail to enjoy.
Scenery – Simply breathtaking with enormous variety. From the flatlands of Barbuda and Anguilla to the north, to the towering pinnacles of Mont Pele, Montserrat, and the Pitons, St. Lucia, to the south, each island offers its own unique landscape with fantastic photo and hiking opportunities.
History – Over the centuries many different peoples have discovered and settled throughout the Caribbean Islands. South American Indians, Chinese, Africans, Italians, British, French, Spanish, Dutch, to name a few, all have played a part in the development of the region. One cannot forget the legendary Pirates either!
Culture – Given the many influences from history, it is not surprising that the culture of the Caribbean is as diverse as the peoples that have contributed to it. Fundamentally, however, our culture is based on warm welcomes, colour, carnivals, religions of many callings, Creole cuisine, “liming”, but most importantly, a relaxed pace of life that does not understand the meaning of stress.
Best Reasons for Choosing a Caribbean Sailing Vacatoion Holiday
Relaxation - The pace of sailing is as chilled as the Caribbean itself. It is wonderful way of combining relaxation with a hint of excitement and adventure.
Flexibility – Subject to weather conditions, changes of plan are possible at any time. There are no fixed schedules, no flight plans, no connections to meet, no baggage to lose in transit. Popular destinations can be savoured and unpopular ones left as quickly as you arrived.
Companions – You choose the holiday companions you wish to share those moments of romance, solitude and fun, both when sailing and ashore on isolated beaches, or busy bars. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people on excursions ashore, but you remain safe in the knowledge that your private domain awaits you upon your return to the yacht.
Variety – The scope of your destinations is enormous compared to a vacation in a hotel. Each day will bring a different bay, a different landscape and a different experience

Location - Grenada - Our base is on the south coast at Hog Island. From here all the beautiful islands of the Grenadines are within easy reach. Even Trinidad & Tobago are not out of the question!
