For those who call Florida home or who venture there from northern waters, the Bahamas make a great weekend getaway or extended stay. Or both! Once you visit we suspect you'll want to return to explore all the picturesque waters have to offer.
Throughout the Bahamas you'll find top-notch marinas that provide a safe and relaxing stay. Here are some of our favorite – and convenient – marinas to consider.
Just down the coastline from West End on Grand Bahama Island is the town of Freeport. Grand Bahama is full of fun activities and things to see and do, including The Unexso Dive Center, which is located close to the harbor in Port Lucaya.

Valentine’s Resort and Marina is located on Eleuthera Island, which is one of the larger islands in the Bahamas.
The resort also includes condos and other places to stay, so you can sleep off the boat here as well. Make sure to check out the Glass Window rock formation and bridge, which connects the major parts of the island.
