Countries in the Leeward Islands
Why is it called the Leeward Islands anyhow? It all boils down to wind direction. The Leeward Islands are called that because they are located in the direction where the wind usually goes.
If the wind is blowing from east to west, these islands are on the “leeward” side, meaning they are more sheltered from the wind. So, these islands get less wind compared to the Windward Islands, which face the wind more directly.
