DISCOVER THE EXUMAS
With sapphire-blue water everywhere, The Exumas are an exotic collection of dream destinations.
Footprint-free beaches, ultra-exclusive resorts, and islands fit for celebrities make this
tropical paradise an absolute gem. Here, nature outnumbers man, coastlines remain flawless
and private homes play host to some of the world’s most famous stars.
The Exumas truly are the ultimate escape.
The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 cays and islands, beginning just 35 miles southeast of Nassau. Once called Yumey and Suma (names of Amer-Indian origin), the islands have gone through many changes over the years. Rich in history, they were settled by British Loyalists with their slaves following the American Revolution, and remnants of that storied past remain. The islands are divided into three major areas—Great Exuma, Little Exuma, and The Exuma Cays. Each one offers its own unique experience. Great Exuma and Little Exuma are known for their laidback surroundings, while The Exuma Cays act as a playground for the rich and famous, boasting numerous private homes, luxury resorts and beachside condos. One of the amazing sights in the cays is the "Mile-long Sandbar," a stretch of pure white sand emerging from the blue-green water at low tide.
DISCOVER ELEUTHERA & HARBOUR ISLAND
From endless pineapple fields to white- and pink-sand beaches to secluded coves
and miles of coastlines, Eleuthera & Harbour Island define The Bahamas. Much of the architecture
and way of life was influenced by British Loyalists who settled here in the 1700s. This style has
since been adopted by the other Bahamian islands, making Eleuthera & Harbour Island the birthplace
of the entire country. In addition, the islands continue to charm visitors with tropical flair, as
Harbour Island is known as one of the best islands in the Caribbean. If you’re visiting The Bahamas,
Eleuthera & Harbour Island are not to be missed.
Eleuthera is the fourth most populated island of The Bahamas, with approximately 11,000 residents. Most who live here either fish for bounty or farm the rolling acres of pineapple plantations. Eleuthera is an island of casual sophistication, housing isolated communities, well-developed resorts, rocky bluffs, low-lying wetlands and massive coral reefs that create magnificent backdrops. Harbour Island on the other hand was once the capital of The Bahamas. It was recently ranked as "The Best Island in the Caribbean" by Travel & Leisure magazine in 2015 and it also received this award in 2005. It also boasts lush tropical greenery and magical pink sand beaches.
DISCOVER THE ABACOS
For enthusiasts of boating, sailing, fishing, and diving, the lovely islands and cays that constitute the Abacos are a dream come true. The northernmost part of the Bahamas, stretching 120-miles along the calm crystal-clear cerulean blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Sea of Abaco, the Abacos feature some of the world’s most beautiful shores, a laid-back beach lifestyle, and an endless amount of seaside pursuits to fulfill your inner escapist fantasies.
The Abaco Islands consist of two main islands: Great Abaco and Little Abaco and a number of picturesque neighboring cays that are tiny and mostly uninhabited. Most yacht charters will begin in Marsh Harbour which serves as the main hub of the Abacos, and from here your options are endless. An idyllic yacht charter destination with plenty to love, whether exploring this tropical paradise from the comfort of a lavish charter mega yacht, sporty charter power boat, chic charter catamaran, or elegant charter sailing yacht, the panoramic beauty of the Abaco Islands is enough to take your breath away.
