Stunning island paradise located in Exumas Cay. Staniel Cay Yacht Club is a unique boutique hotel with 14 bungalows and a full service marina surrounding the famous Staniel Cay Restaurant and Bar. The cozy resort has everything and island paradise needs: crystal blue water, perfect weather amazing food and drinks, all with a location that allows you to travel by boat to explore other islands. I have had the privilege of spending many trips at this island paradise and each time experiencing something different. Each bungalow is decorated in tropical Bahamian style with vibrant colors and a deck to sit outside and enjoy the views. The resort has boats, paddle boards, bikes and snorkel gear for rent so every moment you have something to to enjoy. The restaurant opens at 8am and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you plan to enjoy the day exploring the sandbars and islands the staff will pack a cooler to picnic. Make sure to ask for some scraps to take to the neighboring island, Big Major, that is home to the world famous swimming pigs. Yes, pigs swim and I have seen them with my own eyes. A quick boat ride with take you to Thunderbolt Grotto where you can snorkel an underwater cave full of tropical fish. If you dare you can take a boat to Compass Cay for a chance to swim with the pet nurse sharks. If that all seems to busy and you want to laze around, the pool area is perfect for a frozen drink and a day in the sun. The SCYC has been family-owned since it first opened, and many days you will be sharing a chat with the proprietor. The island is easily accessed with flights on Watermakers Air and the resort will pick you up and deliver you to your island home away from home.
