Soufrière Bay (Pitons)

St Lucia

If the expense of securing a marina berth at each of your destinations sets your head spinning, anchorages are the perfect alternative that will take you away from the hustle and bustle of towns and cities. Rachael Steele, of specialist charter brokers Charterworld.com, a company that organises bespoke superyacht vacations, selects some of the most sheltered, peaceful stopping spots around the Caribbean.

1. Soufrière Bay (Pitons), St. Lucia

The Pitons of St. Lucia are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the town of Soufrière is the closest settlement for guests looking to hike along their hot springs-spotted paths. Rare flora and fauna can be found on the peaks and under the water. Sixty per cent of the marine area is covered in coral so divers and snorkelers will be just as richly rewarded by one of the best dive sites in the Caribbean as those who would rather stay on land.
