The World’s Best Yachting Destinations at Their Peak

Dive and Dine in Bequia

A real sleeping beauty, Bequia is a slow-paced slice of eye candy. It sums up the Grenadines perfectly: soft, sugar-sand beaches; ruffled fringes of jungle; waters clear enough to bottle. Dive off Admiralty Bay for kaleidoscopic coral and reams of reef fish. All in HD. In January, the place is yours. But still book at Fernando's Hideaway in Lower Bay. He cooks what he catches in the morning. Sublime.

Sail the Remote, Wild Waterways of Chile

Few places in the world can raise your heart rate like the majestic Chilean Fjords. Navigating the silent, ice-blue waters of Patagonia is a balm. A world so beautiful, it feels as if you're trespassing in God’s garden. Creaking glaciers. Mirrored snow-dusted mountains. Sunrises to savour forever. This is the yacht trip of a lifetime. Come in January for diamond-clear vistas and the most forgiving sailing weather.

Try a Sea Kayak Safari in New Zealand


Sea kayaking off the east coast of New Zealand's South Island becomes something of a personalised safari in January. Launch the kayaks off of Kaikōura to get up-close-and-personal with playful dolphins, yapping seals, waddling penguins, blowhole-blasting whales and plenty of endemic birds. Wildlife not your thing? The 80 or so subtropical atolls off the North Island known as the Bay of Islands have countless empty beaches and quiet anchorages.

Explore Antigua’s Lesser-Visited East Coast

It's peak season in Antigua and every sea captain worth their salt is plying its sun-drenched waters. The island comes alive with sailors and tourists, which means you can embrace the energy with an afternoon at Shirley Heights Sunday Barbecue or a night out at Jolly Harbour. But book a yacht charter in January and you can moor and explore the lesser-visited, Atlantic-side beaches like Nonsuch Bay and Long Bay.

Shake Your Tail Feathers at St Kitts’ Carnival

St Kitts never disappoints. This quiet Caribbean queen is all about the finer things in life. Miles of golden, demerara beaches. Candy-coloured cities. Stylish superyacht marinas. It's a world of long, finessed lunches and rum-fuelled beach parties. Charter a yacht in early January to catch the end of Sugar Mas, the carnival that takes place in Basseterre. Else, it's only warm days, water sports and beach relaxation on offer. Sorry.
