Ahoy Mate! A Luxury Yacht Charter in Nassau, Bahamas Awaits
Written by Missy Johnston
Although it was overrun by pirates in the early 1700’s and proclaimed a “Pirate’s Republic,” Nassau, Bahamas is now a popular tourist destination, known for hot spots such as Atlantis rather than walking the plank. And there’s no better way to experience the gorgeous waters surrounding Nassau and all the city has to offer than on a luxury yacht charter. We have a list of the top attractions to help you start planning your dream yacht charter getaway.

A yacht charter in this lovely destination usually begins and ends in New Providence Island, Nassau—the capital of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. There are a number of marinas throughout Nassau where charter yachts can dock, including Atlantis Resort and Albany Marina. There is plenty to see and do during a luxury yacht charter trip, but here’s a little taste of what awaits:
Beaches: The coastline of New Providence Island has many beaches. Some of the more well-known ones (Junkanoo, Cable, and Cabbage beach) are more crowded, but on a private yacht charter you can enjoy the more remote white sand beaches on the southwestern end of the island.
Museums: The one place you will see pirates is the Pirates of Nassau Museum, while the Pompey Museum displays exhibits about the African experience in the Bahamas.

Nature: One of the largest collections of various species of palm trees can be seen at the Retreat Gardens. Then, enjoy the monkeys, flamingos, and other tropical animals at the Ardastra Gardens.
Shopping and entertainment: There is no shortage of options when it comes to fun and shopping. The Bahama Craft Center and the Straw Market sell a variety of handmade and unique items, while the resorts and casinos offer all types of nightlife activities.
