THE EXUMAS, The Bahamas (Feb. 23, 2018) — Imagine boarding a private jet in New York at 2 p.m. on a Friday, mid-February, flurries of snow piling up on the tarmac as you ascend into the sky. You’re tired, you’re stressed, and you’re ready to disconnect. Now imagine it’s three hours later and you’re stepping off that same plane onto a remote private island. Balmy, 80-degree breezes brush across your skin as you disembark, and the only detectable sounds are those made by swaying palm trees and ocean waves as they lap up on the nearby shore.
This is what awaits visitors to Blue Island: peace, solitude, sanctuary.
Situated in the southern Exuma Cays, the 700-acre island is located 147 miles southwest of Nassau, or about a 30-minute flight, and offers not only the utmost in seclusion but also an array of desirable features such as a brand-new 5,700-foot jetway; six white sand beaches; 15 miles of lush nature trails lined with mango, banana and coconut palm trees; hilly terraces; and, a 5,000-square-foot main house offering panoramic views of the Atlantic.
“It’s the largest private island currently available in The Bahamas,” said Steve Donovan of Damianos Sotheby’s International Real Estate who is exclusively marketing Blue Island. “There are numerous places where you could build a house or beach bungalow, and each would have its own beach. And with hills reaching up to 90 feet from sea level, Blue Island offers the kind of security and shelter that discerning investors seek out.”
And with the mainland of Great Exuma a short boat ride away, Blue Island offers the best of both worlds—the ability to relax in your own private world combined with convenient access to supplies, staff, restaurants and shopping.
Between its location in the Exumas, easily one of the most beautiful places in the world, and its development potential, Blue Island is ideally positioned to become the next ultra-exclusive resort along the lines of Mustique or Necker Island,” Donovan said. “And with 700 acres to work with, you could even include an 18-hole golf course. The possibilities really are endless.”
