Islands in the Sun

作者: Iyna Bort Caruso

Nothing spells paradise more than the Bahamas — the ultimate prescription for a laid-back yet luxurious lifestyle.

Officially called the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, it is a country encompassing more than 3,000 islandscays and islets in the Atlantic Ocean, with Paradise Island, Lyford Cay, Eleuthera and the Abaco islands regarded as some of the top go-to places for those who yearn to kick back in style — in their own home.

Paradise Island is located just off the shore of Nassau. Best known for the sprawling Atlantis resort and home to other top-tier lodgings and casinos, aptly named Paradise Island features some of the most exquisite residential properties in the region. Gated communities found in this Bahamian playground offer striking examples of Old World elegance with all the modern-day amenities of the good life: architecturally stunning designs, exquisitely manicured lawns and ocean views that offer relief from the stresses of the world beyond its perimeters.

Lyford Cay is a 1,000-acre world-class community on the western tip of New Providence Island. The exceedingly private and privileged enclave is well established with an international set that has been making its way here since the 1950s. Lyford Cay’s recreational facilities include an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts, a yacht club and marina, as well as a pristine beach and private school.

The long and narrow strip that makes up the island of Eleuthera is known for its dramatic cliffs, rolling hills, sandy beaches, colonial villages and pineapple fields. Fishing, boating, tubing and diving are popular pastimes. Eleuthera’s manses bear all the markings of complete tropical escapes. The most magnificent among them have private deep-water docks, guest cottages and tennis courts. Alternatively, Eleuthera’s waterfront lands are a veritable canvas on which to create the ultimate dream home.

Meanwhile, Abaco Islands are known as one of the world’s top boating and sailing destinations. While resorts, bars and restaurants make them a popular place to vacation, multi-million-dollar amenity-filled properties make Abaco the epitome of a private island retreat that redefines the notion of quality time.
