Sunset paddleboarding to truly secluded shores… It’s easy to see how the notion might seem more dream scenario than actual attainable adventure to some. Secluded anyplace’s aren’t exactly the norm in popular destinations. (Ipanema, anyone?) And even if you do find yourself someplace well off-the-beaten-path, the prospect of seclusion can be hit or miss there these days. I mean, crowds are even finding their way to the most extreme corners of the earth!
So, what’s an uncommon traveler like you to do? Answer: Trek to the Out Islands of The Bahamas. Staniel Cay, in particular, is a great choice. This tiny (area: two square miles) and sparsely-populated (less than 120 residents) islet is centrally-located in the Exumas. As such, it’s surrounded by sandbars and other tiny islets, each boasting their own beautiful and blissfully deserted shores. Paddleboarding Staniel Cay is especially easy for guests Staniel Cay Yacht Club. The preeminent place to stay here since 1956, Staniel Cay Yacht Club makes complimentary use of standup paddleboards available to all guests.
