Leeward Islands

An island group of Lesser Antilles.


The Leeward Islands are the northern islands of the Lesser Antilles chain of islands, east of Puerto Rico and running southward to Dominica, being part of the West Indies. They are situated where the northeastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean. The southern part of the Lesser Antilles chain is called the Windward Islands.

These islands are referred to as "leeward" because the prevailing (trade) winds in the area blow from the east.
