Visit The World’s Greenest Islands

Like any parent, Mother Earth shows her love by giving us all she can — fresh blue water, clean air, diverse wildlife, and captivating green landscapes. In honor of World Oceans Month, what better way to celebrate her than by exploring the Earth’s natural beauty?

The Moorings, the world’s premier yacht charter company, has found the greenest islands surrounded by sapphire blue waters. And with a recently announced partnership with conservation group Hello Ocean, you won’t want to miss what lies beneath the waters. So, grab your bathing suit, flip flops, and enjoy paradise aboard your very own luxury yacht in these exotic destinations.

The Pitons of St. Lucia
A jewel of the Windward Islands, the famous peaks of St. Lucia are eye candy for those cruising near the small town of Soufriére. Surrounding the infamous Pitons are crystal blue waters which are the highlight of any St. Lucia yacht charter. Enjoy windsurfing, kayaking, and snorkeling in the ocean as well as hiking, sightseeing and shore front restaurants when you want to venture on land.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Are you looking for adventure on your next vacation? Take a trip to Bora Bora, one of the Leeward islands of Tahiti with some of the world’s top snorkeling and scuba diving venues. The turquoise waters are home to one of the most diverse ocean ecosystem including turtles, sharks, dolphins, porpoises, colorful hard and soft coral, and more than 500 species of fish.

Khao Phing Kan, Thailand
It’s no secret that Thailand is endowed with unparalleled tropical beauty. With its towering pinnacles of limestone and famous Phi Phi Islands that stand as jewels of the Andaman Sea, this destination is of the most interest to sailors. Khao Phing Kan island, also known as James Bond Island for being featured in “The Man with the Golden Gun,” has gorgeous caves that you can explore by kayak!

Norman Island, British Virgin Islands
As inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, Norman Island is full of good food and good times — above and beyond the bluest and clearest ocean. The three water-level caves at the base of cliffs are a must see for cruisers.

South Water Caye, Belize
Turquoise waters, sparkling white sand beaches and dolphin sighting position this palm tree filled paradise as one of the most scenic experiences in Belize. And, with The Moorings working with Hello Ocean to study, track, and observe the marine life here, you can be sure the aquatic creatures will be protected and preserved for years to come.
