The Lesser Antilles (“Antillas Menores” in Spanish, “Petites Antilles” in French) is a large archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, comprising smaller islands in the East and South of Antilles; they are subdivided into two or three subgroups:

  • the “Windward Antilles”, “islas de Barlovento” in Spanish, “îles du Vent” in French (the eastern subgroup), forming a volcanic arc to the East, preferably subdivided in English into:
    • the “Leeward Islands” (the northeastern subgroup), to the north of latitude 15°N and the east of longitude 65°00′W, between the Virgin Islands and Dominica, generally extended to Isla de Aves;
    • the “Windward Islands” (the southeastern subgroup), ‎to the south of latitude 15°N and the east of longitude 62°30′W, between Martinique and Grenada, generally extended to Trinidad and Tobago;
  • the “Leeward Antilles”, “islas de Sotavento” in Spanish, “îles sous le Vent” in French (the southwestern subgroup), along the Northern coast of South America (rarely extended to Trinidad and Tobago or Isla de Aves).

Note:

  • The Netherlands Antilles is a former dependency of the Kingdom of the Netherlands located in the two “Leeward” subgroups of the Lesser Antilles.
