2 Week Itinerary Martinique to Antigua

Hi...currently planning a trip for April 2019. We plan to charter two boats in Martinique with plans to travel one-way to Antigua over a two-week period. We could also drop the boat off in St. Barts but I think that would require too much sailing and not recreation.

Any suggested itineraries? I am not familiar with Dominica so don't know whether we should budget any time there or not. Definitely want to spend some time in Guadeloupe and the Saints. Any experience in this region? How many days to get a good feel for the area?

We know Antigua pretty well and have been to the island twice now. Would love to sail to Barbuda if that is still allowed. My understanding is that the island is not deserted (was never much there though for tourists). However, their 18 mile long beach on the west side of the island is attractive for a day or so.

Any help is appreciated.

Dominica is wonderful - definitely worth spending several days there. Les Saintes is also very nice, but not as interesting as Dominica. It depends what you are looking for - Antigua has great food and entertainment but Dominica has raw nature and beauty. Montserrat is worth a trip too I think - not too far from Antigua although the anchorage is rolly so best to stay only for the day.

Don't go to St. Kitts, you'll spend your time filling in forms and paying fees to Government. You'll also be threatened with a $100,000 fine for being out of compliance with the Caricom Advanced Passenger Information System. Avoid St. Kitts.
