The Best Bahamas Beach Clubs and Bars to Visit by Yacht
October 2, 2018
While St Barts and St Tropez may win the awards for glamorous beach clubs, the Bahamas beach club scene takes a completely different tack. These rustic, fun-loving beach bars are a place to kick your shoes off and sink your toes in the soft sand, order a rum cocktail, and enjoy the gorgeous view.
Relax. You’re on island time.
The Best Bahamas Beach Clubs
Chat ‘N’ Chill, Stocking Island, Great Exuma
Sapphire waters lap at white sands outside Chat ’n’ Chill, where the yacht’s tender can drop you ashore for a relaxed afternoon of cocktails, beach volleyball, and just chilling out under the pines. There’s even a Sunday morning church service before a pig roast celebration- making this one a truly Bahamian experience.
On the island paradise of Eleuthera (often referred to as the St Barts of the Bahamas), you’ll find Tippy’s restaurant and beach bar right on the sands, its breezy open-air gazebos overlooking the turquoise sea. And get ready for a treat: the food here gets international acclaim, and the eclectic décor just adds to the experience.
Nippers Beach Bar and Grill, Great Guana Cay, Abacos
This lively beach bar is set up on top of the dunes, where the terraces are filled with people enjoying beach games, watching live sports on TV, or swimming in one of the two pools – all to the sound of live music. Part sports bar, part party venue, and part family-friendly Bahamas beach club, Nippers is a Bahamian institution.
Nirvana, New Providence
This old-school Bahamas beach bar is the perfect place to bliss out on your Bahamas yacht charter. Relax at a deckchair on the soft sand, order a rum cocktail at the thatch-roof bar, and wait for the party to start at sunset.
Billy Joe’s on the Beach, Freeport
Billy Joe’s on the Beach offers its guests the perfect no-frills Bahamas vibe. Set in a rustic shack on the beach, this is a top spot to settle in with a cold beer and dig into some seriously good conch salad.
Sherri’s Paradise, Bimini
Make sure you’re hungry when you head to this beach bar, as Sherri’s Paradise serves up some of the best lobster and cracked conch you’re ever likely to eat. Take a table under the thatch roof and enjoy the sea breezes wafting over the salt drying on your skin after a swim in the unbelievably blue sea.
Pete’s Pub & Gallery, Little Harbour, Abacos
If you’re looking for a Bahamas beach club with personality, then Pete’s Pub and Gallery has it in droves. A sprawling shack built over white sands and clear water, this cheerful beach bar also doubles as a sculpture gallery, with artwork hanging from every surface.
An Ideal Bahamas Charter Yacht
The 140′ (42.6m) M/Y ICE 5 is a spectacular choice for a yacht charter in the Bahamas. Featuring a six-stateroom, 12 guest layout, huge volumes and all the superyacht luxuries like a sundeck Jacuzzi, ICE 5 is particularly well-suited to cruising the Bahamas due to her shallow draft and is the perfect family charter yacht.
