Kamalame Cay, The Bahamas

This private island is just a 15-minute flight from Nassau and offers an isolated sanctuary surrounded by crystal-clear water and shaded with rustling palms.

Stay: At Kamalame Cay Resort, you'll get as much (or as little) attention as you want from the staff. Grab a cocktail and stroll across the sandy path to the dock to catch a stunning sunset; 800/790-7971.

Eat: At the resort's Great House restuarant. Begin the day with a made-to-order breakfast with local fruits and freshly made Bahamian breads. Situated in a wraparound veranda, you'll enjoy gourmet cuisine in an elegant atmosphere.

Do: Discover the beauty of underwater life with a scuba expedition at the island's PADI rated Dive Centre. The centre offers all levels of certification for non-divers, snorkelers, and children. Diverse marine life and 100-foot visibility promises an unforgettable adventure.
