Featured Destination: Caribbean Edition
Some of our U.S. clientele are ready to travel overseas again but would rather stay closer to home for now, so where have they been going? The Caribbean archipelago, with over 7,000 separate islands, is easily accessible — especially when travelling privately. Take advantage of more direct routes and shorter flight durations to spend more time enjoying the year-round sunlight. We’ve compiled a list based on our clients’ feedback to less-travelled Caribbean destinations that provide the ultimate luxury — privacy.
St. Lucia is the largest of the Windward Islands, located in the Eastern Caribbean, and features magnificent turquoise seas lapping white sand beaches and unspoiled rough volcanic scenery. The island’s west shore is marked by two volcanic mountains rising from the sea, Gros and Petit Piton, which are thought to have originated between 200,000 and 300,000 years ago.
Don’t miss: The premium, adult-only Ladera Resort is the only resort located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 1,000 feet above sea level, on a volcanic ridgeline.
Petit St. Vincent
The 115-acre private island getaway, located 40 miles south of St. Vincent in the Grenadine Islands, has only 22 luxury cottages. Soak in the natural beauty of Petit St. Vincent – two kilometres of pure white sand beaches surrounded by tropical vegetation – while totally disconnecting from the outside world (there are no TVs or WiFi on the island).
Don’t miss: Get certified to explore a 100-year-old shipwreck with experts from the Jean-Michel Cousteau Dive Center, which was founded by the great explorer’s son.
From the West or East Coast, the Challenger 350 will get you there in under 8 hours.
The little former British colony (it gained independence in 1983) is known as “The Queen of Ceribees”. It symbolizes a rustic, old-school spirit for a less congested option compared to other Caribbean islands. Nevis’ miles of golden beaches are surrounded by vibrant coral reefs — the island was a vacation destination for Princess Diana – and Nevis Peak, an active volcano, is a popular hiking excursion.
Don’t miss: A visit to historical Bath Village for a soak in the famous therapeutic hot springs.
Get there on a Challenger 350 in under 7 hours from the West or East coasts.
The “under-the-radar” island, the “C” of the ABC Dutch Caribbean islands (part of the Netherlands), is closer to South America than to the United States. Discover Curacao’s over 40 beaches along the dazzling Caribbean Sea, as well as its vibrant city, Willemstad — the Old Town Center, with architecture that combines Dutch and Spanish influences, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Don’t miss: For a leisurely day trip, visit Klein or “little” Curaçao, a 1.7-square-kilometre undeveloped island about 25 miles southeast of Curaçao.
From either West or East Coast, the Challenger 350 will get you there in under 7 hours.
