Planning a cruise through the Caribbean waters in a luxury yacht? An adventure trip, a relaxing vacation, a romantic escapade, a fun-filled holiday – whatever you wish for, a cruise through The Bahamas can cater to your heart’s desires.
Whether you want a taste of the high-life at the ever popular Nassau or get a feel of the real Bahamas at the secluded Bimini Island, you are sure to find an ideal stopover destination. The question is – where do you sail to? The answer – it depends entirely on your tastes and inclinations.
Let’s take a look at the five Bahamian islands that offer diverse experiences to suit your journey of discovery aboard a luxury yacht such as MY Starfire.
Eleuthera & Harbor Island – Juxtaposition of Contrasts
Stretches of sun-kissed beaches, striking cliffs and sheltered coves, shimmering blue waves – every detail creates the ideal island-escape. What makes this Bahamian destination different? It’s the unique combination that the two islands create.
Eleuthera, an offbeat destination, is a haven for vacationers who just want to relax. If you intend to do nothing, and enjoy it too, this is the ideal choice for you. Harbor Island, a celeb favorite, is the perfect place if you want to go shopping at upscale boutiques and dine at fine bistros. And the opportunities don’t end here!
Nassau & Paradise Island – A Big City Appeal and a Utopian Charm
How does the bustling Nassau fit into the description of a cruise destination? You will know it as you get a view the Bahamian capital from the superyacht. It’s a fascinating sight. The verve and vigor of Nassau is sure to arouse even the sleepiest of visitors.
Explore the exhibits at the Pompey Museum, visit the historic villages to understand the rich heritage, enjoy the performance at the Pirates of Nassau Museum, see the rare and exotic palms at the Retreat Gardens, or just walk through the busy streets crowded with people, peddlers, pirates and performers.
The Berry Islands – Simple Secluded Serenity
When you want to get away from everyday realities and escape into a dream, what better way to do it than to visit the Berry Islands! With miles of secluded beaches, coves, caverns, cliffs and creeks, the islands seem just right for you.
Comprising of 30 cays, the islands offer some of the best activities in the Bahamas. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, golfing, hiking and beachcombing are just some of the things you can enjoy here. Want to relax? Just find your way to the Sugar Beach, the crown jewel of Great Harbor Cay beach stretches.
The Exumas – An Ideal Escapade
With 365 cays extended out on the sapphire waters, the destination offers opportunities galore for every vacationer. And you will understand it once your yacht reaches the Elizabeth Harbor, beside which is located George Town, the administrative center.
Drive through the one-lane bridge that connects the Great Exuma with the Little Exuma. Enjoy your stay at an uber chic resort at Exuma Cay, explore the secret beaches and historic ruins, have a drink at a friendly beach bar and make the most of your stopover.
Explorers on the lookout for something different can visit the Hamilton Cave, an ancient cave system where Lucayan Indian tribal cave drawings and artifacts were discovered in 1935. Or, go for a dive in Dean’s Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole in the Bahamas.
You can do so much on a vacation on board your superyacht; just plan your cruise to make sure you don’t miss anything!
