Join your yacht in the spectacular Atlantis Marina on Bahamas Nassau’s Paradise Island after a short flight from home. Stop at the famous Straw Market to pick up a wide-brimmed hat and woven tote for shelling. Later, you’ll anchor off Warderick Wells to explore the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. A marine preserve with brilliant coral reefs. In short, what a way to start your trip.
En route to Staniel Cay in the Exumas Bahamas, you may want to stop at Big Major’s Spot. A protected anchorage perfect for watersports. And don’t forget to feed the wild swimming pigs. Then it’s off to Thunderball Grotto, where James Bond escaped the bad guys in the movie.
Of course, it is now filled with much friendlier tropical fish. Specifically radiantly colored marine life. This is a great place to snorkel!
Compass Cay is located midway up the Exuma’s. You’ll find friendly nurse sharks at the dingy dock on Compass Cay Marina. They will wiggle onto the dock for you to pet them. Likewise, a visit to Rachel’s Bubble Bath is highly recommended. In other words, this crystal-clear blue lagoon is a natural pool full of bubbles. It was created by ocean waves that spill over its edge. A turquoise-watered paradise awaits you.
This uninhabited cay is part of the Exuma Land & Sea Park. And it is a nursery for sea turtles, conch, lobster, and an endless variety of fish. Explore the tidal creek by tender to view the wildlife. Take a hike to the highest vantage point for an incredible panoramic view. And then enjoy an icy piña colada on the soft sand beach. At night, savor the spa pool under the stars.
On the way to Highbourne Cay, a must-stop is Allan’s Cay. Go ashore to feed fruit to the tame iguanas. They are dragon-like throwbacks to prehistoric times. Additionally, the Bahamas Exumas is the only location in the world where these endangered rock iguanas can be found.
Swing past Norman’s Cay. It was once a hideaway for drug smugglers whose wrecked planes lay on the reef. Once at Highbourne Cay, formerly a watermelon plantation, there are fascinating ruins to explore.
Exuma’s Harbour Island is famous for its coral-pink sand and the Devil’s Backbone. This reef has caused marine havoc for centuries. With this in mind, hiring a pilot to navigate this notoriously dangerous reef is highly recommended. But it can be one of the most attractive places in the Exumas to snorkel or dive for remnants of shipwrecks.
Do enjoy the marina at “Bri’land.” Rent a golf cart, the primary mode of transportation. And explore the narrow streets lined with pastel-colored houses. Above all, do have a drink at the Pink Sands Resort. And then wiggle your toes in the aptly-named sands.
Back at Nassau, you’ll want to leave time to explore the Atlantis Marine Habitat and stroll through its clear tunnel surrounded by sharks. In addition, you might want to Tee off at the Ocean Club Golf Course. You will undoubtedly enjoy a refreshing play on a championship course with spectacular views of the beautiful Bahamian coastline.
