The Windward Islands were named because they were more windward at this location than the Leeward Islands. Geologic Setting: The Windward and Leeward Islands are positioned on the eastern edge of the Caribbean Plate. This is an area of modern and historic volcanism. The islands are mainly volcanic with some coral contributions. The Windward Islands are the south-eastern islands of the Caribbean and simply called windward because they're exposed to the wind of the northeast trade winds. They include the islands of Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, the Grenadines and Grenada. Dominica is the dividing line between the Windward and Leeward islands. The Leeward Islands are located where the northeastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean. They are named for the trade winds in the area that blow from the east. Some excellent dive sites are situated in the Leewards, and we have recommendations on some of the best ones to visit while on your yacht charter in the Caribbean!
