Musha Cay at Copperfield Bay, The Bahamas: If a luxurious yet unique experience is what you seek this Labor Day, then you'll love this private island nestled among the out islands of the Exumas. The island, owned by David Copperfield, is a collection of eleven beautiful isles of pure bliss. With rates starting at $24,750.00 per day, if private and exclusive is what you seek, then this is the perfect choice for you.
Kamalame Cay, Andros, The Bahamas - Home to the Signature Silver Linings Retreat, Kamalame Cay was named the top resort in the Caribbean, Bermuda and The Bahamas, two years in a row by Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. On this 96-acre private island, allow yourself to be pampered at The Bahamas' only over-water spa or opt to swim in the freshwater pool while drinking from the loaded tiki bar. If this is too relaxed for you and you need just a bit of adventure, go off the radar at a nearby deserted island - the staff will take care of all the arrangements for you. There's tons to do or nothing at all, if that's your speed.
Cat Island, The Bahamas: A year-round tropical escape, you'll have a chance to climb the highest point in The Bahamas and visit the Hermitage, a former medieval monastery. If you're a water baby, you can get lost exploring the Mermaid Hole - the blue hole of Cat Island that is rumored to be home to a long-haired she-fish. Stay in one of the cozy cottages at Fernandez Bay Village. Or if you're looking for something a little more secluded, try The Ocean Dream Beach Resort. This eco-friendly resort is perched on a hill with amazing views and below it sits one of the '30 best undiscovered beaches' according to Islands magazine.
Long Island, The Bahamas: End your summer exploring with one of the oldest dive operations in The Bahamas. Long Island is best known for Dean's Blue Hole, the deepest recorded blue hole in The Bahamas, descending to more than 600 feet. When you're tired of swimming in the blue hole, try your hand at bone-fishing, sailing or yachting - whichever your heart desires. If time permits, sail to Conception Island and get to know the numerous species of birds and fish that make their habitat in the surroundings of this scenic island. Long Island is also home to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Cape Santa Maria. Unpack your bags at Gems at Paradise Bay in Clarence Town and spend the night overlooking the gorgeous bay. Or if you prefer to stay off the beaten path with your family, Stella Maris Resort is the perfect place for kids and they also offer affordable babysitter rates.
Harbour Island, The Bahamas: Better known as Briland. If you want a recap of Summer 2018, Briland is the perfect place. Famous for its satiny pink sands, there's no way you can drive past a beach without the desire to get lost in the turquoise waters. The beach in Harbour Island is protected by an outlying coral reef making it one of the safest snorkeling spots in The Bahamas. If you prefer immersing yourself in the rich history, visit the Loyalist Cottage, the Commissioner's Residence, St. John's Anglican Church and the Lone Tree. Base yourself at one of the cottages or private homes at The Dunmore. Or make yourself at home in one of the suites at Romora Bay.
