Staniel Cay, a shining gem in a sea of tropical treasures, is located among the azure waves of the Exumas archipelago. Far from the hustle and bustle of daily life, this paradise offers a look into the unspoilt splendour of the Bahamas, complete with pristine beaches and spectacular natural sights. As you cruise towards this remote paradise on a yacht charter, a world of luxury, peace, and incomparable exotic vistas unfolds before you. Here are our top three reasons why you should explore Staniel Cay and the Exumas via charter yacht, a compelling choice for those seeking a one-of-a-kind Bahamian experience.
Beautiful beaches and one-of-a-kind natural landscapes
Every turn and turn on this small but magnificent island shows a canvas painted with the most vibrant colours of nature. Ho Tai Cay, also known as ‘Petrak Beach’, is one of the island’s most beautiful beaches. The quiet murmur of waves provides the perfect backdrop to a peaceful afternoon while you relax on its sun-kissed dunes, and the occasional playful stingray may become your swimming friend for the day. The magnificence of the famed Thunderball Grotto beckons people who are fascinated by the mysteries of the deep. Dive beneath its limestone dome and be welcomed by a brilliant diversity of aquatic life, a sight so enthralling that it even piqued the interest of Hollywood.
The Staniel Cay Yacht Club is a haven of luxury.
While the natural beauty of the island is one of its key draws, the touch of luxury you’ll find at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club improves your experience. Expect exquisite dinners in the sea-level dining area, all while taking in panoramic views of the Exumas. As the day draws to a close, the Captain’s Lounge, steeped in history since 1956, provides the ideal location for a tropical cocktail, allowing you to relax in an atmosphere that combines the elegance of yesteryear with contemporary luxury. After you’ve had your fill, head back to your yacht for a nightcap under the stars before bed.
Unrivalled tranquillity and tranquilly
Staniel Cay’s quiet and peace remain one of the island’s distinguishing traits. A leisurely ride in a rented golf cart takes you through its picturesque Bahamian village, lively local markets, and past talented boat builders at work. The island’s timeless allure is reflected in the quiet hum of daily life. A walk to adjacent Highborne Cay promises unrivalled vistas from the Exumas’ highest point for those seeking an elevated experience. And as you gaze out the ‘Fountain of Youth’ at a sunset, time appears to stand still, only to be interrupted by the distant oink of the famed swimming pigs splashing in the waters below.
