Staniel Cay Yacht Club

The Staniel Cay Yacht Club is the perfect place for anyone seeking a comfortable and casual getaway on a remote, unspoiled island. The Club has been entertaining guests since 1956 and offers first-rate accommodations and heartfelt service. The island’s main attractions are its friendly people, beautiful clear waters, and secluded beaches. With a population of less than eighty full-time residents, Staniel Cay is the ideal place to escape from the cares of the world.

The island of Staniel Cay is nestled in the magnificent chain of Bahamian Out-Islands called The Exuma Cays (a.k.a. “Exumas”) and lies approximately 75 miles southeast of Nassau and 250 miles southeast of Florida. The island itself is less than 2 square miles in area and although small, the village has most of what anyone could need: a post office, church, nurse clinic, library, retail shops and a marine supply store. In addition, a 3,000 ft. airstrip allows for frequent flights for passengers and freight to the U.S. The marina has recently been completely renovated and can accommodate vessels up to 170 ft. in length or drafts up to 8.5 ft. at low water. Services provided include fuel, electricity, fresh water, ice, bait, and wireless internet.

Staniel Cay and the surrounding isles are a perfect setting for numerous activities - naturally, the clear, warm water is the main playground. You can enjoy a day filled with relaxation, excitement, or maybe a bit of both!

The Yacht Club restaurant’s renowned Bahamian-American cuisine and island bar (named as one of Jimmy Buffett's "10 Great Places for a Waterside Drink") will be a highlight of your stay. It is a unique and casual atmosphere with food that is simply superb. On a given evening in the clubhouse, hotel guests, visiting yachtsmen, Staniel locals, celebrities, neighboring cay residents, and private pilots all come together to share food, cocktails, experiences and lively conversations.

And if you’re of a mind to spend some time on land, the waterfront cottages are charming and wonderfully comfortable. Both the single cottages and two-level suites are tastefully decorated with a modern, tropical décor. The views will take your breath away as you relax on your balcony, the clearest waters in the world lapping just a few feet below.

So come by, relax and let the sights and sounds of this small Bahamian Out-Island bring you peace of mind and spirit.

Each guest gets to soothe their body, mind, and soul, with small-island charm. The casual, relaxed atmosphere cannot be duplicated on larger, more developed islands. Nowhere else can you paddle a kayak or pilot a skiff through the many surrounding cays and find a hidden beach with no footprints but your own. The people are friendly and the pace is your own. You can do as much or as little as you like. Not many places get named as one of Jimmy Buffett's "10 Great Places for a Waterside Drink" - they did. The waters of the Exuma Cays are unmatched - warm, clear, colorful, and full of life. Swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and fishing will never be more memorable than at Staniel Cay.

Guests return because they fall in love with the property. Not just the physical beauty, but the friendly, casual atmosphere that makes everyone who comes here feel like "part of the family". It is a small property on a small island, and guests come to think of Staniel Cay Yacht Club as "their place". Friendships form here that last forever.
