760 miles long make up the Bahamas, a long chain of islands, cays and reefs stretching from the island of Great Brahama, to Great Inagua, the southernmost island of The Bahamas. Sail through the 100-mile chain of unspoilt cays of Exumas or lay back and relax on the glistening white sand of Long Island's deserted beaches, spend a few fun days in the former pirate capital of Nassau with its duty-free shopping, golf, museums and restaurants. The rhythm and culture are charmingly Caribbean, like the turquoise sea that laps gently against its beaches. Be surprised by its welcoming residents who exude friendliness.
Belize is considered one of Central America's best kept secrets, a true natural gem, this stunning region boasts a seductive, yet modest beauty. Unspoiled and considered the 'adventure coast', this hidden treasure offers plenty of fishing, snorkelling, diving and kayaking. Nestled between Mexico and Guatemala and home to the second largest barrier reef in the world, you can scuba dive among the stunning coral reefs and enjoy the unique underwater fauna.

Cruising the Keys is good all year round; its excellent climate and warm water temperature, thanks to the flow of the Gulf Stream, make it an infallible destination. Here there are plenty of paradisiacal spots where you can relax and sip a cocktail in the sun from the deck of your boat. We recommend places like Bahia Honda, where you can relax in peace and quiet. Dare to sail along each of the Keys - Newfound Harbour, Duck Key and Islamorada, which will give you the most versatile experience, visiting lagoons, mangroves, Everglades and coral reefs. You can use Key West as a base for day trips and in the evening you can explore the many bars of Duval Street, Mallory Square's Sunset Celebration and the Ernest Hemingway House and Museum, which are definitely worth a visit.
