Dare to do something a little different this Valentine’s Day by treating your honey to a very memorable and romantic weekend trip to The Exumas. In lieu of flowers, chocolates and dinner at an overly crowded and pricey restaurant, pack your bags and book a ticket to one of the most romantic island and chain of cays within The Bahamas, or if you’re in the money, a private cay!
While there is no shortage of romantic options in The Bahamas, the Exuma Cays are our top pick for spending an unforgettable Valentine’s Day. The main island is located 15-20 mins away from the capital of Nassau [Bahamas] and is easily accessible by boat, or by plane.
The Exumas are sure to overwhelm, in a major way. You can do it all, or you can do nothing at all. If you’re an adventurous couple, we suggest a day on the water exploring the natural beauty of The Bahamas. Exuma Watersports and its owner Ray Lightbourn will ensure that you have the time of your life cay hopping while visiting the world famous Swimming Pigs, snorkeling and walking on the popular Exuma sandbars.
Take the adventure & thrill up a notch and visit the ever popular Compass Cay, and swim with the nurse sharks. A short boat ride away, you’ll find the famous Thunderball Grotto, an underwater fishbowl filled with hundreds of tropical flora and fauna, perfect for snorkeling. The grotto was featured in the fourth James Bond spy flick Thunderball.
Too much adventure? Lay out and sun by the pools at the all inclusive Sandals Emerald Bay, or sign up for a couples massage with a facial at the uber schmancy Red Lane Spa. When you’re done, enjoy a candle lit dinner for two in the gardens or by the beach while watching the sun slowly melts into the ocean.
How’s that for a little romance?
