The Bahamas have long been a popular destination for travellers of all kinds from all corners of the world. The Abacos are a lesser-known group of islands and barrier cays located in the northern Bahamas, where laid-back vibes, historic colonial charm, and postcard-worthy views reign supreme. And nestled just 35 miles southeast of Nassau, the Exumas harbor some of the most unspoiled pieces of paradise in the Caribbean, many of which can only be accessed by boat. Choose an Abacos or Exumas yacht charter to discover an enchanting holiday you’ll want to relive again and again.
Sailing in Exumas
The exotic strip of deserted beaches and idyllic anchorages dispersed throughout the Exumas provide an optimal setting for a 5-Star yacht charter holiday. From the sparkling turquoise waters to the pleasant trade winds and favorably-warm tropical climate, the Exumas boast desirable conditions all year long. Between September and May, the temperature ranges between 70-75°F (21-24°C) but the rest of the year, the average is around 80-85°F (27-30°C). The topographical makeup of the Exumas offers easy-to-navigate cruising grounds, allowing novice charterers and veteran sailors alike to capture an uncommon holiday in an unforgettable destination.
The splendiferous Exumas chain that extends over 100 miles north-south through the heart of the Bahamas is riddled with highlight-worthy experiences both on and offshore. Plan to explore the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park — one of the largest protected marine parks in the world — to appreciate pristine underwater beauty in its purest form. At Big Major Spot, animal-lovers can splash around on the beach with the world-famous swimming pigs. And at Compass Cay, live out your fantasy to swim with sharks, with the peace of mind that the nurse sharks found here are notoriously friendly.
