More about the Caribbean ... The West Indies archipelago, which includes thousands of tiny islands, forms a massive breakwater 2,000 miles long consisting of islands and reefs, which protects the Caribbean Sea against the Atlantic Ocean. This barrier provides the Caribbean its much touted calm and clear waters.

The West Indies is known by a variety of names. The earliest name, and the one most frequently used, is West Indies. Christopher Columbus gave the region that name erroneously when he arrived in 1492. He thought that he had circumnavigated the earth and that the islands were off the coast of India. Over time other names came into use.

Spain and France called the islands the Antilles, after the mythological Atlantic island of Antilia. The larger islands (Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola - Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico) came to be known as the Greater Antilles, while the remaining smaller islands were called the Lesser Antilles. Today we break the area into four island chains: The Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the eastern and southern islands of the Lesser Antilles. Together, these islands cover more than 91,000 sq. miles of land area.

The Lesser Antilles are divided into the Windward Islands and Leeward Islands, names referring to the position of the islands relative to the trade winds that blow steadily from the northeast. The Windward Islands consist of the islands close to the northern coast of South America. The Leeward Islands consist of north eastern group of islands.

- The principal islands of the Windward group are Dominica, Grenada, Martinique, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent, Trinidad & Tobago.
- The main islands of the Leeward group are Antigua, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and the Virgin Islands - St. John, St. Croix, St. Thomas.

The northernmost island chain is The Bahamas. The Bahamas include 29 inhabited islands and nearly 3,000 islets stretching southeastward from Florida. Most of them are flat islands formed from coral and limestone.

The Greater Antilles is the largest and westernmost chain. It includes Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico. The four main islands comprise nine-tenths of the entire land area of the West Indies. Cuba alone has almost half this area. The main island of Cuba covers 105,006 sq km (40,543 sq mi).
