Sexy Slips: 9 Hotels Where You Can Park Your Boat (PHOTOS)

Posted: 06/13/2012 7:00 am

Some people plan summer road trips. For others, a summer adventure involves sailing or yachting on the high seas. But long boating trips are no fun without stopping to see the sights on land and stretching out your sea legs.

Luckily, these nine hotels, in beautiful locales ranging from the Caribbean to the Northeastern U.S., are situated right on marinas -- so yachties can park and fuel up both their bodies and their boats. Some resorts, such as Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys, let boaters sleep on board and still access all of the pools, restaurants, and activities on-site -- all for no more than the docking fee.

The Bitter End Yacht Club, snuggled into a steep hill on the scenic North Sound, is a relaxed, family-friendly resort. The on-site Quarterdeck Marina can accommodate 18 yachts (up to 150 feet long, with drafts up to 15 feet), and is arguably one of the most popular destination marinas in the Caribbean. For those staying on land for the night, the resort's tech-free rooms (no TVs or Wi-Fi here) feature stunning views from the balconies, and the sliding doors allows breezes to sweep through. The white-sand beaches at the hotel are narrow, but they are still the highlight here, offering plenty of water sports and relatively calm waters.
