The balmy shores and overgrown tropical foliage of The Bahamas' out islands are some of the most exquisite landscapes in the world. While their populations are low, the select few who live in these paradises wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
Located on the eastern shores of New Providence, Palm Cay spans over 69 acres, including 1200 ft of white sand beaches. It is home to more than 300 exquisite and expertly-designed stand-alone homes and condos. A host of amenities cater to their community of "ocean-loving adventurers," as they proudly say, and it's one of the aspects we love most about this community. Here's a closer look at what you can expect to find at Palm Cay.
A boater's paradise, Palm Cay offers everything any boating enthusiast could want - including a full-service, deep water marina, and the best location for accessing Rose Island and the Exumas - only 28 miles away! The 194-slip marina is considered world-class and has a fuel dock, Starbucks cafe, and concierge service. The marina partnered with NavTours, who specialize in sailboat charters in some of the most beautiful destinations in the world, including our beautiful Bahamian islands. The Palm Cay marina is now home-base for the company's fleet of sailboat and catamaran charter boats.
Adding to the allure of this seaside community is the Pink Octopus Restaurant, the beachside Ink Bar and Palm Cay Club, which offers both an adult and family pool, as well as the Member's Beach Club. "Palm Cay's Members Beach Club recently underwent a $2 million transformation. This included the construction of a stunning beach bar, an opulent 80 ft. lap pool and a private section of luxury cabanas, as well as ample dining and entertainment space. Surrounded by white powder beaches and crystal-clear ocean, the members beach club is an embodiment of serenity and sophistication," states the developer.
A Dermalogica Spa is one of the newest additions to the seemingly endless list of amenities. Health and fitness enthusiasts enjoy a full complement of health and fitness options, with the gymnasium, tennis courts, water sports, and children's playground.
With an array of awards and achievements, including "Developer of the Year," by the Bahamian Contractor Association, and "#1 Marina" by FirstChoice Marina, over the years, Palm Cay continues to expand. The One Marina project is now complete, and development continues, with new opportunities coming soon.
Whether you're looking for a vibrant neighborhood to relocate your family to, or you're looking to purchase an investment property that you can put on the vacation rental market, this is the place. Bahamian tourism is on the rise again - a welcome update for us all. As we've seen already for the month of March, our tourism numbers exceeded most expectations, and it's true when they say our islands are a hot destination(but we already knew that). There continues to be growing interest in VRBO and Airbnb properties these days, and the Palm Cay community is thriving, making this both a great place you can escape from it all AND somewhere you can look to for strong investment opportunities.

Surrounded by endless miles of beautiful blues and greens, our islands were made for celebrating the sun, sand, and sea! For those in search of that idyllic island lifestyle in New Providence, having a home in one of our many waterfront communities offers the best of both worlds - modern-day conveniences with the charm of island living. While the list is extensive, we took a look at three specifically unique communities in New Providence and wanted to share a bit of insight into these areas.
Old Fort Bay is today known as a luxury residential community-based in the west, yet its history dates back to the 1700s. The original Old Fort structure is now an exclusive members' club, but much of the building's history has been preserved in restored murals and architectural details and artifacts. One could easily get lost in the magic of the history that abounds here. Old Fort Bay Marina & Yacht Club lies next to Lyford Cay Harbour and features a canal system. Historic homes and sought-after real estate include Colonial-style estate properties, villas and waterfront houses, and spacious single-family houses. As well as a private beach club, the community has a fitness center, tennis courts, children's playground, 24-hour security, exclusive restaurants, lush tropical landscaping, and more.
If luxury, peace, the natural environment, and a desire to live the island lifestyle is not just a dream for you but a requirement, you will want to see this coast and canal building site in Old Fort Bay.
Port New Providence
Resting on the eastern shores of New Providence, the Port New Providence community has long been considered to have the most boaters per square foot than any other Eastern neighborhood. This location also has the easiest and fastest route to the beautiful Exuma islands - just a quick trip away. That's music to the ears of any avid boater, beach lover, fisherman, or island adventurer. After all, when your dock is on your doorstep, there's every reason to embrace that Out Island lifestyle. A gated community, Port New Providence is a blend of single-family homes and townhouses. Here you'll find a host of amenities, including a private beach, additional dockage, clubhouse, childrens' playground, tennis courts, and tastefully landscaped grounds, including a duck pond. 24-hour security is also provided.
If you're ready to build that Out Island home of your own, or you're looking for a great investment opportunity, here's a property that gives you 65 feet of canal front along one of the most elevated lots within this fabulous community!

Here again, the lure of life on the sea calls. Boating, fishing, diving, and beaching are all within easy access when you can dock your boat in your own backyard!
