Staniel Cay is located amidst the azure waters of the Exumas archipelago, surrounded by a multitude of tropical treasures. This sanctuary offers a glimpse of the unspoiled beauty of the Bahamas, with a variety of pristine beaches and unforgettable natural wonders, far removed from the din of daily life. As you sail towards this secluded sanctuary on a yacht charter, a world of luxury, tranquilly, and unmatched exotic landscapes opens up before you. Here are our top three reasons why chartering a yacht to explore Staniel Cay and the Exumas is a compelling option for those looking for a one-of-a-kind Bahamian experience.
Heavenly shores and extraordinary natural scenery
This small, beautiful island reveals a canvas painted with nature’s most vibrant hues at every turn. Among its mesmerising beaches, Ho Tai Cay, also known as “Petrak Beach” in the local dialect, stands out. When you lie on its sun-kissed sands, the sound of the waves is the perfect accompaniment to a tranquil afternoon, and a playful stingray may be your swimming companion for the day. The majesty of the renowned Thunderball Grotto attracts those who are intrigued by the mysteries of the deep. Dive beneath its limestone dome and you’ll be greeted by a scintillating array of marine life, a sight so captivating that even Hollywood took notice.
The Staniel Cay Yacht Club is opulent.
While the island’s natural grandeur is one of its primary attractions, the Staniel Cay Yacht Club adds a touch of luxury to your stay. Here, you can enjoy opulent meals in the dining room on the water’s edge, surrounded by panoramic views of the Exumas. As the day draws to a close, the Captain’s Lounge, which has been steeped in history since 1956, provides the perfect setting for a tropical cocktail, allowing you to bask in an atmosphere that combines the charm of the past with modern luxury. After consuming your fill, you can adjourn to your yacht for a nightcap under the stars before retiring to bed.
Peace and tranquilly beyond compare
Staniel Cay’s tranquilly and calm continue to be one of the island’s defining characteristics. A rented golf cart will transport you through the charming Bahamian village, the bustling local markets, and past the skilled boat builders at work on their masterpieces. The tranquil murmur of daily life on this island is evidence of its timeless appeal. A walk on adjacent Highborne Cay offers unrivalled views from the Exumas’ highest point for those interested in a more elevated experience. And as you watch a sunset from the ‘Fountain of Youth,’ the world appears to stand still, until you hear the famous swimming pigs creating a splash in the water below.
