What Makes a Great Yacht Marina?

Designing a Superyacht Marina

The Bahamas is a dream destination for many people, and because of its gorgeous weather and because it’s an archipelago, it is one of the best places in the world to visit with a yacht or superyacht. The famous turquoise waters that surround the country can be recognized from space, but getting up close truly allows you to appreciate nature at its finest. Look for sea turtles, dolphins in the water, and flamingos and iguanas on the shore. As you sail near the hundreds of remote islands toward a great yacht marina: Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina.

Because the water in The Bahamas can be shallow, it can create challenges when docking, especially if you have a large yacht that requires deep water and plenty of room to turn around. At Hurricane Hole, we have designed our superyacht marina with your convenience in mind. With a custom deep-water design and a minimum low-tide depth of 14.5 feet, a large turning basin of 240 feet, and docks that offer slip space up to 420 feet, you will have no issue maneuvering in and out of your berth.

We have recently redesigned and expanded all our facilities and now offer a full range of luxury marina amenities, guaranteeing that you and your family or guests will have the ultimate Bahamian experience during your stay with us. You can count on high-end security, first-class customer service, and top-tier comfort at Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina and the surrounding Paradise Landing residential and commercial community.

You can’t put a price on the incredible location of Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina, and that’s just one more reason why it’s recognized as a great yacht marina. The Bahamas is one of the most beautiful places on earth, with its archipelago consisting of nearly 700 shallow-water coral islands, which are generally low-lying and flat, with palm trees and powdery white sand beaches. There are also over 2,000 coral reefs teeming with marine life, an incredible sight to see.

With its warm weather, crystal blue waters, and slow island life, visiting this Caribbean paradise can feel like a dream. The Bahamas is easy to get to. You can fly into the Linden Pindling airport on New Providence Island, or you can sail your own boat directly to the country.

Paradise Island is one of the 700 islands of The Bahamas, and one of the 30 or so islands that are populated. Some of the other popular islands include Cat Island, Eleuthera, Abaco, Exuma, Crooked Island, and San Salvador Island. New Providence Island and Paradise Island are connected via two bridges that make it easy to drive back and forth, or you can take a small commuter ferry boat during daylight hours.

Paradise Island was first developed into a luxury gambling destination in the 1950s, rebranded from its original name “Hog Island,” and transformed into a playground for the rich and famous. It is a small, safe, and comfortable island to visit today, with family-friendly attractions, resorts, and hotels, as well as a vibrant nightlife scene and the largest casino in the Caribbean — the Atlantis, which is also a water park and a family-friendly luxury resort. You can find a great yacht marina, world-class day spas, shopping, famous restaurants, golf courses, and so much more on the island.

Nearly 70% of the country’s population lives on New Providence Island. The busy capital city of Nassau is located here, with plenty of sights and attractions to take in on a day trip or a weekend visit from your home base on Paradise Island. Rent a car or a bicycle and take one of the two bridges over or catch a boat at the harbor for just a few dollars. Nassau has incredible culture, history, and theaters. You may wish to take a guided tour of the Pirates of Nassau Museum or the Pompey Museum of Slavery and Emancipation to learn more about the history of the country, and then head to the Local Straw Market for locally made souvenirs.

Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina is located right in the middle of all the action and is just minutes away from almost anything you could need. The island is small, at 1.1 miles long, so you will have no trouble finding a private beach, good food, entertainment, or a tropical cocktail. There are places to snorkel or dive, you can enjoy a round of tennis on the world-famous Cabbage Beach, or you can take advantage of the incredible retail opportunities at luxury shops, craft markets, and jewelry stores. Paradise Island has something to offer everyone, whether you crave a luxurious meal at a renowned chef’s restaurant or a cup of coffee from a nearby café. 

Consider utilizing the exceptional yacht marina, Hurricane Hole, and the nearby residential and commercial community, Paradise Landing, as your starting point for exploring other sought-after destinations in the Bahamas. Some of the places worth visiting include::
