Antilles is a subregion in the Caribbean containing most of its archipelagos in the Caribbean Sea. It is generally divided into two groups of archipelagoes:

  • Greater Antilles in the North, comprising Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
  • Lesser Antilles in the South and West, comprising all other smaller islands, and subdivided into:
    • the Leeward Antilles, along the Northern coast of South America, and
    • the Leeward Islands (southern part) and the Windward Islands (northern part) – Languages other than English do not split these two western groups and refer to them only as Windward Antilles.

Note: The Netherlands Antilles is a former dependency of the Kingdom of the Netherlands located in both parts of the Lesser Antilles.
