After months of being sequestered in our homes, most of us are itching for an adventure. And since flights are limited, boat travel is the perfect remedy for cabin fever. Now that the Bahamas have reopened to international travelers as of July 1, we think this is the perfect first international yachting destination. Just remember to check on the Bahamian customs list before you cast off!
We’ve comprised a list of our favorite locales where you can plan your international vacation:
Just 50 miles east of Florida’s southern coast lies an oasis of color and calm. One of the Bahamas best kept secrets, this charming locale is a fisherman’s paradise. Bimini boasts pristine white-sand beaches, full-service marinas and tropical resorts. Once Ernest Hemingway’s favorite place to vacation, Bimini is a popular and easy boat trip destination you’ll want to bump to the top of your summer “to do” list.
Eleuthera & Harbour Island
If you’re planning a trip to the Bahamas, Eleuthera & Harbour Island are a must see! The fourth most populated island of the Bahamas is known for its ambiance of casual sophistication and tropical charm, showcasing rolling acres of pineapple fields, gorgeous saltwater coves and magical pink sand beaches.
We recommend using the popular resort isle of Nassau, which features plenty of 5-star accommodations such as Atlantis Paradise Island, as a jumping-off point for trips to more secluded settings like Eleuthera or the Exumas.
For those looking for a more remote destination to travel by boat, The Exumas offer a unique experience for the adventurous at heart – in fact, some of the James Bond movies were filmed here! Roughly 365 cays strung together collectively make this one of the world’s best diving locations, putting divers face-to-face with vibrant reefs and colorful local wildlife. Staniel Cay’s famous Thunderball Grotto is also a perfect stop for first-time travelers and repeat visitors. End a day of exploration, watersports and fishing with freshly caught and prepared seafood and sunset cocktails.
