With forecasts expecting an extremely busy 2022, make sure to book these winter superyacht escapes before you miss out.

The Med season is drawing to a close, or maybe you’re finishing up a boss trip in Chile and are wondering which destinations to suggest next to your boss? Look no further as Superyacht charter specialists West Nautical have put together five of the most stunning suggestions for winter superyacht escapes:

Caribbean

The first place we often think of when we hear the word paradise is the Caribbean. It is the ultimate destination for relaxation and beauty.

If guests seek some winter sunshine and entertainment, these Islands are the place for their winter superyacht escapes! With over 5,000 islands to explore and limitless open water, the Caribbean is an ocean lover’s playground. Thrill-seekers can enjoy water sports and diving in the reefs and cays. If that’s not your guests’ scene, they can lay back and relax on one of the secluded white-sand beaches.

Visit Gustavia Harbour in St Barts for fantastic shopping, nightlife, restaurants, and European comforts. Enjoy the golden sunset in St Lucia or retreat to the deserted beaches of Anegada, surrounded by their native pink flamingos. The options are endless! Want off the beaten track activities? Why not suggest a day diving at Sculpture Park, a famous dive site in the oceans of Grenada. Or a hike to the Dunn waterfalls in Jamaica. 

Another incredible destination in the Caribbean is the British Virgin Islands. They provide an array of beaches, natural seawater pools and coral islands. They have to be seen to be appreciated! Made up of over 60 islands and islets, guests will experience white sand beaches at every turn. Beach bars are located in many popular bays should your guests want to escape the yacht for a drink. There are also many unexplored and uninhabited locations for those moments when guests are looking for ultimate privacy. The BVI’s are one of the world’s most idyllic locations.  It has year-round warm weather and the opportunity to partake in various activities like kite surfing or going on a world-class reef or wreck dive. 

Maldives

Nestled within the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are a tropical nation of 26 atolls. Made up of over 1,190 coral islands and islets, the Maldives offers some of the best cruising in the world. Guests will experience a journey of discovery. Winter superyacht escapes here incorporate white sand beaches, secluded anchorages, and a laid-back pace of life.

The Maldives are the perfect location for a diverse holiday. They are filled with natural beauty, exceptional cuisine, and relaxation at the height of luxury. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in a vast array of water sports activities, including diving, snorkelling, jet-skiing, and paddle boarding. Each island has its own unique beauty making this destination picture-perfect for those Instagram ready holiday snaps.

Suggested activities include a day of snorkelling, diving with stingrays, turtles and a large variety of fish. Or, guests can enjoy an aerial view of the islands from a seaplane. Island hopping and visiting one of the Maldives’ five-star resorts for the day always goes down a treat. Or maybe guests want to spend their whole charter on board in complete privacy. 

Antarctica

For guests looking for an unforgettable winter escape off the beaten track. Suggesting a yacht charter in Antarctica will provide a life-changing adventure. One which very few get to experience. 

Antarctica offers an abundance of wildlife and untouched natural scenery that cannot be found anywhere else on the globe. Guests can take part in a nature trek or go ice diving with a specialist instructor. There really is no other place in the world like Antarctica.  This unique destination boasts some of the world’s most exquisite and captivating landscapes that remain largely unexplored. Guests lucky enough to cruise these waters will be some of the few to witness its awe-inspiring nature. They will experience ice waves and astonishing wildlife, including whales, seals and penguins—all basking in the 24-hour sun.

Not to mention, guests will tick the 7th continent off their bucket list. 

Cuba

An exotic, enchanting and exceptional destination. Cuba is the ultimate place for those who want the serenity of the ocean waves, paired with the vibrant atmosphere of city living. La Havana has a magnificent culture to explore. With its brightly coloured buildings and classic cars.  If guests want lively nightlife, then Cuba is the place for them. Havana is jam-packed with bars and nightclubs. They can dance the night away, listening to live music, all with a fresh mojito in hand! It’s the perfect location for adventurous yachting enthusiasts. 

Crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches, and great nightlife. What’s not to love?
