It’s the avowed opinion of the many sailors who navigate into The Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour in Antigua that the warm, welcoming breezes are a mere foretaste of an awaiting adventure.
The Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbour — with its surrounding fortifications and buildings — is one of the most intriguing ports in the world with many restored, fully functioning monuments and still-standing ramparts at Shirley Heights. It’s little wonder that it was declared by the United Nations a World Heritage Site. Don’t let age fool you, the impeccable services offered here are in line with the discerning tastes of the guests that seek out a yachting destination that meets their every expectation.
Antigua will inspire your inner explorer. Boasting 365 beaches, many of them inaccessible by land, the island provides a new beach to host your private escape every day of your yacht charter adventure.
Pick up anchor and head down the coastline — which is unlike any other and is heavily indented with famous white, sandy beaches and fascinating coves. Drop anchor at Cades Bay Reef where snorkeling reveals a wondrous world of sea life and beautiful coral reefs. Just a stone’s throw away is the ultra-chic Carlisle Bay resort with its luxurious Blue Spa, which is open to charter yacht guests.
A yacht charter is perfect for roaming the many islands off Antigua’s coasts. Bird Island, for instance, is home to a vast bird population and Antigua’s tiny indigenous racer snake.
In addition to the sumptuous meals prepared by the onboard chef, you will be spoiled by the restaurant choices in Antigua as the island offers a plethora of incredible dining options in the environs of the Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua Yacht Club Marina and Falmouth Harbour Marina as well as Jolly Harbour. And no luxury yacht charter of Antigua would be complete without swaying the night away at one of the island’s many bars.
