Paradise-Island-Bahamas

The Junkanoo carnival procession in celebration of the New Year may be well and truly over, but that doesn't stop the Bahamas from being the perfect spot for a January getaway. Discover endless entertainment at Atlantis LIVE, which has featured a multitude of performers from Jimmy Kimmel to Lady Gaga, or grab a cocktail in one of the many bars and lounges before dancing the night away at the Aura nightclub.

To recover, guests can tender to pretty Rose Island, or unwind at the beachside Sivanda Ashram Yoga Retreat on Paradise Island. Otherwise, indulge in a treatment at the Mandara Spa for ultimate relaxation.

Charter superyachts can berth at the Atlantis Marina on Paradise Island and zip to the Atlantis casino for a lavish dinner.

Must-know: The New Year’s Day Sailing Regatta on 1 January sees traditional Bahamian sloops racing in Montagu Bay between Nassau and Paradise Island.

Dominican Republic’s sleepy Samaná Peninsula is one of the best whale-watching destinations in the world. Each year, thousands of humpbacks travel to Samaná Bay, their breeding ground. Human voyeurs are nearly guaranteed a sight of the magnificent creatures from mid-January to late March, making Samaná Peninsula the perfect island to visit on a superyacht charter in February. You can also cruise to Los Haitises National Park, with its otherworldly rock formations.

Must-know: The luxe La Marina Casa de Campo on the Dominican Republic south coast offers superyacht dockage, fuelling, a chandlery and a shipyard with a 120-tonne lift.
