week-yacht-itinerary-from-nassau-to-eleuthera

Day One – Nassau

You will begin your sailing itinerary from Nassau, Bahamas’ capital, which with nearby Paradise Island, offers 5-star beaches, casinos, boutiques, and luxury resorts.

Here there are plenty of ways to spend your time, whether you just want to relax or you want to discover all that this beautiful location has to offer:

Bay Street is the main street in the city. It is the shopping center, and here you can find the boutiques of the most expensive jewelers, souvenir shops, duty-free liquor, and much more. On the sides of the road, you can see the typical buildings that reflect the style of the ancient British colony.

Fort Fincastle is one of the main places to visit in Nassau. It was built in 1793 using limestone in a strategic position on the top of Bennet hill to protect the historic center of the city and its port. From here, you can enjoy a fantastic view of Paradise Island. You must walk through the famous Queen’s Staircase to reach the fort. It was built together with Fort Fincastle for defensive purposes and has 65 steps. The name was given in memory of Queen Victoria.

Finally, if you want to spend a few hours on the beach, the closest to the center is Junkanoo Beach, also called Western Esplanade. This area connects the two shores of Arawak Cay and Long Wharf. They are the most relative to downtown Nassau and are a few minutes walk from the cruise ship dock. The sand is white and beautiful. However, this country can offer a much better beach and sea.

Day Two – St George’s Cay

You’ll be at St George’s Caye by the second day of your yacht charter itinerary from Nassau. Famous for its lobster, this island is just to the north of Eleuthera. You can explore the Spanish Wells and sample some of the finest cuisines the Bahamas has to offer.

St George’s Cay is just a few hours by boat from New Providence island.

Famous for its lobster, this island is located just north of Eleuthera and is mainly known for the Spanish Wells resort. The isolation, silence, and serenity breathed in these places attract visitors, who also find turquoise waters accompanied by the sound of the light Atlantic surf.

The Spanish Wells is a magical place. Whether you are looking for a relaxing beach or adrenaline-pumping activities, Spanish Wells Bahamas has something for everyone.

Its beaches are beautiful and empty. White and dusty sand, shallow turquoise waters. A safe place for the whole family, perfect to let your loved ones, especially the little ones, have fun in absolute tranquility. Exactly what you want for your beach vacation.

Fishing is also excellent in this area thanks to the great diversity of species that populate the sea. You will have the opportunity to practice different styles, including deep sea fishing, reef fishing, bone fishing, spearfishing, and other variations that suit all your preferences.

Day Three and Four – Eleuthera

At the halfway point of your navigation, your journey comes alive. A short distance from St George’s Cay is Eleuthera and Harbor Island, considered by many to be one of the liveliest and most chic parts of the whole country.

Small Harbor Island is a real gem and a must for tourists and celebrities who choose this area. It is a picturesque island characterized by historic New England-style architecture. Still, it is best known for its beautiful Pink Sand Beach, located along the eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean. The beach stretches for about three miles and is 50 to 100 feet wide. Considered one of the best beaches in the Bahamas, it has been included in The Travel Channel’s Best Beaches in the World segment.

The almost indescribable pale pink color of the sand comes from microscopic coral animals with a bright pink shells. These animals live on the underside of coral reefs, on the seabed, under rocks, and in caves. After the death of the insect, the action of the waves mixes the shell with sand and coral pieces, creating this particular effect. Unlike other parts of the world, the sand here is always fresh so that you can walk freely in bare feet!

Eleuthera is instead a vast expanse of wild beauty. It is the largest island in the area, extending from north to south for kilometers. The Glass Window Bridge will leave you breathless among the many natural wonders it offers its visitors. It is one of the few places in the world where you can compare the rich dark blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the road and the tranquil turquoise Eleuthera Bay on the other, separated only by a strip of rock. about 30 feet wide.

The Queen’s Baths (or hot tubs) are located south of the Glass-Window Bridge, on the Atlantic side of the island, and are fabulous natural pools carved by centuries of waves beating on the rock. The best time to visit them is during the low or medium tide.

Day Five – Harbor Island

This day is dedicated to diving. It would be a waste to visit the Bahamas without seeing the wonders that its seabed offers.

Eleuthera and Harbor Island waters count more wrecks than any other island in the Bahamas. What’s more, coral reefs and dive sites are affordable for everyone.

With visibility up to 60 meters deep and waters with the perfect temperature for most of the year, they hardly compare to an ideal diving destination!

Day Six – Surfer’s Beach

Governor’s Harbor is a charming town on Eleuthera and is also home to Surfer’s Beach, one of the best surfing areas worldwide.

If surfing the waves is your thing (even if you’re a novice), put on your gear and head to Surfer’s Beach, where southwestern winds blow from the Atlantic. It is the second-largest beach in the world for surfing, and many experts compare surfing here with the Hawaiian Islands.

Even if you’re less sporty and just want to watch, the two-mile stretch of beach has some of the best sugary white sands in the Bahamas!

Day Seven – Back to Paradise Islands

End your week aboard your charter yacht by returning to Nassau. More precisely, head to Paradise Island, and before disembarking, enjoy the white sand and the blue sea for the last time. You can alternatively take the opportunity to visit one of the most exclusive and iconic resorts in the world: the Atlantis Bahamas Resort.

Note: itinerary days or week/s can be adjusted and amended per individual guest choice.
