Think white sands, clear blue ocean, palm trees swaying in the breeze – welcome to Princess Cays, one of the private islands in the Bahamas.
At only 40 acres long it’s a relatively small piece of paradise. Along the edge of the island colourful cabanas allow you to retreat into the shade when you get too hot. And if you’re peckish there’s a grill buffet where you can get food like burgers and hot dogs.
As it’s quite small you’ll probably tire of exploring and sunbathing rather quickly. For an extra charge you can hire pedalos or snorkelling gear. If you’re a little more adventurous try banana boating, or if you head over to the island next to it you can race around in dune buggies.
For kids there’s a play area and paddling pool to splash around in, and for those a little older there’s an adults only section, where you can hire out premium cabanas. Sounds perfect, but what’s the catch?
As a private island it’s strictly for tourists and therefore not exactly a true representation of life in the Bahamas. But if you want to relax and enjoy the sunny weather then it’ll be right up your street.
