Some of the most popular destinations for a luxury girl’s vacation on your all-inclusive charter are the Bahamas, US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Greece. What makes them so attractive to yacht charter tourists and visitors is their tropical location, luxurious reputation, and calm, clear waters that make sailing so enjoyable.
Easily the most visited island in the Bahamas is Nassau which boasts crystal clear waters, bright-colored colonial cottages, and the world-famous Atlantis Resort. As a notable attraction in the Bahamas, the island of Nassau provides a variety of activities for groups to enjoy. It’s also the perfect island to anchor a yacht charter and bring out all the water toys. Most yachts come equipped with towable tubes, water skis (for kids and adults), floating toys such as flamingos, mats, islands, unicorns, and noodles, standup paddle boards (SUPs), wakeboards, and snorkel gear.
If you’re looking for a more unique experience, you can book a short day tour of Nassau that includes a stop at the Atlantis Resort. The tours offered here give you an insider’s look at historical Nassau, local attractions, shopping, nature, and much more. A variety of wine and rum tastings, water sports, and animal encounters are also popular among tourists in Nassau.
Most charters use Nassau as the starting point before heading to the pristine waters of the Exumas. After boarding your yacht and sipping your first glass of champagne, the yacht is underway for approximately 4 hours before you reach Highbourne Cay where you can watch an amazing sunset on your first day of charter. The Exumas offer a chance for you and your gal pals to reconnect, enjoy water sports, and yes - visit the swimming pigs!
The US Virgin Islands are a hot spot for American travelers mostly because they don’t need a passport to visit there. But there are several other reasons your girl’s group may want to book an all-inclusive yacht charter to the USVI’s. From rum tasting on St. Croix and bar hopping on St. John to the white sand beaches of Magens Bay on St. Thomas, the USVI’s provide fun for everyone.
Once you’ve landed in St. Thomas, you and your gals will board the yacht and set sail to St. John. Your first night in the USVI’s will be spent anchored off of the Virgin Islands National Park where if you arrive with enough time, you and your friends can enjoy some of the many water toys available on board before heading to dinner. You can enjoy dinner on your private yacht prepared to your specifications by your own personal chef and afterward head ashore to lively Cruz Bay for some local action. Our bigger motor yachts often have more water toys available such as jet skis, a water slide, sea bobs, efoils, and climbing walls to name a few.
After cruising by Trunk Bay Beach, you’ll travel through the BVI’s for a few days while making your way back to St. John. Here, you and your friends can go snorkeling or scuba diving off the yacht, take a hike up Ram’s Head, go fishing on the south shore, or go sailing through Coral Harbor. Then enjoy some cocktails and snacks on the flybridge for a truly unique experience.
On your last day in the USVI’s, you and your ladies will be in St. Thomas where you might anchor in Christmas Cove or Buck Island for one last dip in the ocean before heading home.
The British Virgin Islands are some of the safest archipelagos to sail in the world. The islands are fairly close to one another making travel to different locations simple and relatively quick. Even with constant trade winds, the BVIs are mostly unaffected by the weather and are a sight to see any time of the year. The BVIs have been considered the most popular destination for a crewed yacht charter vacation due to the balance of luxury and excitement they provide each guest.
Some of the most popular activities to take part in while visiting the BVIs on your girl’s getaway include scuba diving and snorkeling (which can be done right on the yacht), shopping, hitting the spa, and enjoying a nice drink on the beach. Jost Van Dyke, Anegada, Tortola, and Virgin Gorda are well-known islands in the BVIs for being yacht charter hotspots to anchor in. The waters here are ideal for visitors to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, sailing, and fishing. To make things simple, your crew will bring out all the toys for guests to enjoy and will even lead guided snorkel trips.
While Jost Van Dyke is ideal for relaxing on the beach and enjoying some drinks with your gal pals, Anegada is great for groups looking to explore what’s below the water’s surface. Diving and snorkeling are extremely popular in Anegada and accommodations are easily made since all dive and snorkel gear is available onboard ensuring you get the best dive experience possible on your yacht charter. And in Jost Van Dyke, popular bars like the Soggy Dollar Bar and Foxy’s, along with shopping the local stores are a favorite among visitors.
Similar to Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda is an ideal island to soak up some sun. Some of the Caribbean’s most famous beaches reside here, including the Baths, renowned for their secluded pools and maze of large colorful, granite boulders.
If you’ve never been to Greece, you’re missing out on a unique experience of ancient history mixed into the breathtaking seascape that can be seen at every turn. There’s an endless amount of things to do on a chartered yacht traveling through Greece, from fun water sports like snorkeling and swimming to exploring the ancient ruins of the area.
Your luxury yacht charter around the Aegean Islands will start in Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece. While Athens is a bustling tourist destination, the islands surrounding the area are much less crowded, providing relaxing, quiet seas to set sail and travel through.
One of the best archipelagos you can visit in Greece is the Cyclades Islands. This is where all the luxury yacht charters go to give their guests a truly beautiful and fun experience. Some of the islands that make up this group include Mykonos, Santorini, and Delos. Here, you can enjoy swimming in the open waters, snorkeling, scuba diving, and much more.
Group vacations aboard a luxury yacht charter provide a cohesiveness that is lost at larger hotels, resorts, or cruise ships. Daily activities are easily arranged as meeting times and transportation to an excursion are non-existent. You’re able to jump in the water, grab a bite to eat, explore the terrain on your own, and enjoy your girl’s group vacation with Envy Yacht Charters.
The best way to discover tropical locations is through private, all-inclusive yacht charters where you can customize your trip and remain secluded from other travelers. There is so much beauty waiting to be discovered on these islands and we can’t wait to be your guide. You can now book your yacht charter for the Spring and Summer of 2022!
