TOP SPOTS FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE

Discover the best superyacht spots to ring in the New Year

There is no better way to ring in the new year than from onboard a luxury yacht. Whether you want to count down the final seconds of 2018 stargazing from your sundeck, or head onto dry land to join the local festivities, we have all the details you need on the top destinations to celebrate New Year’s Eve in superyacht style.


The Bahamas

With warm winds, white sand beaches, turquoise waters and secluded anchorages, the Bahamas are a haven for exceptional sailing and exciting island-hopping adventures.


For some tropical fun in the sun, ring in the New Year in paradise by joining the enthusiastic Bajans partying across these beautiful islands.


Staniel Cay Yacht Club in the Exumas hosts a highly popular New Year’s Eve masquerade party, complete with traditional Bahamian pig roast and midnight fireworks on the beach. The next day, the Staniel Cay Cruising Regatta is always great fun.


On New Year’s Day, Nassau hosts the traditional Junkanoo Parade on Bay Street. So much more than just a parade, this is one big party; elaborately costumed dancers head down the street to the sound of horns, drums and bells, in a celebration of Bahamian art and culture and a nod to welcoming in the New Year.

Grenada

Grenada’s relaxed ambiance radiates across idyllic beaches, quaint towns and luscious plantations. Fabulous diving and pristine landscapes highlight the wonders of the natural world, but there is also plenty of entertainment to be found on the vibrant spice isle. With a Caribbean guarantee for a fun-packed festive season, Grenada delivers the most zealous celebrations of all the Windward Islands.


A huge draw for yachties and featuring as a top New Year’s Eve waterside hotspot, Grenada does not disappoint on this special night. Set just across the water from the capital of St George’s, Port Louis Marina offers plenty of places to anchor in time for the exciting New Year's Eve celebrations. Highly illustrious and getting better every year, there is quite a party at the Victory Bar and Restaurant. Expect live music and DJ sets on the main stage, a VIP poolside area, a gala dinner and, at midnight, a spectacular fireworks display that can be seen all over the island.

Thailand

Revel in beautiful beaches, sheltered lagoons, thriving culture and spectacular marine life on a superyacht charter in Thailand. With a wide range of daytime activities on offer along the coastline and an ultra-hip, colourful nightlife, Phuket offers endless options for unbeatable New Year's Eve parties.


One of the coolest vibes is found on Patong Beach at the heart of the island’s nightlife, where revellers take to the sand for one huge celebration. Beach clubs burst into life the minute the sun sets with infectious beats filling the air and a breath-taking fireworks display lighting up the bay at midnight. For those wishing for a slower pace, anchor your superyacht off Surin Beach in the west and settle down to enjoy a front row view of the dazzling pyrotechnics staged by the renowned Amanpuri Resort.
