  • Whymms Cottage

    "This is an excellent place to stay to base out of while exploring the entire island. Beach is a short walk away. Accurate description, photos do not do justice. Really a nice place, very clean, comfortable, with a nice vib. Owners very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property and recommend the entire island. Fantastic island to visit. Have to have a rental car as the island is 80 miles long and holds beautiful secluded beaches south to north. No report on fishing as I was too busy enjoying other aspects of the island. Nicest people I have ever met. Very safe with no worries. Cant wait to return."

  • Love Long Island and the people there

    "My wife and I rented one cottage and friends rented the other one. We just loved them. If you have ever spent any time in the Bahamas you should be aware that things don't always go as planned. We looked at our vacation as an adventure and didn't worry about the grill not working or we were low on water when we arrived because of a break down of the water truck. The water tank was filled after a few days and we found a grill under the deck we used over the fire to grill our grouper and lobster for dinner. There are lots of towels and extra blankets in the laundry room. The AC worked great when needed but we opened the windows most of the time and let the cool ocean breeze blow through. We brought our own snorkel gear and glad we did as the masks provided by the cottage could stand to be replaced. We hid loot on the beach and made maps to find it for the next person staying there. The locals were great in helping us explore everything on the island. Check out Sou Side bar in Salt Pond for some great food, drink and conversation. The stores have everything you would want and the prices were O.K. Check out the farmers market on Saturday morning. I would rent this cottage again because of the location and everything it offered. We simply loved it here. If you are looking for a place to relax and be right on the water, this is it. If you are looking for an all inclusive resort, you might want to stay in Nassau, as this might not be for you! Thanks for a great cottage!"

Long Island Travel Tips

Ocean Lovers Will Feel at Home at Long Island Vacation Rentals

Long Island is located in the beautiful Caribbean Sea and forms part of the Bahamas. The calm turquoise waters invite all kinds of water sports so it’s no surprise that many visitors are scuba divers and water sport enthusiasts. It’s a place where you can be as active or leisurely as you like. Take a sunset cruise on a luxury yacht, explore the ocean depths on a dive, or rent a kayak for the day. For those that like staying on firm land, Long Island has spectacularly beautiful beaches. Enjoy lazy days in the sun and finish them with sundowners at one of the local beach bars.

Long Island Travel Hot Spots

Long Island has many beautiful beaches but the pink sands of the Love Beaches are particularly famous. Located on the Atlantic side of the island just off Ocean View Drive, the four grouped beaches are popular for romantic sunset strolls. There is also a shallow bay that’s ideal for kids to play in.

The Dunmore Plantation is well worth a visit. Once a thriving plantation, relics of the former mansion, estate and slave houses can be visited. Now a quaint town, it’s a haven for artists and craft vendors. Enjoy a lazy afternoon browsing the many stores and find some handcrafted souvenirs to take home. The town also has beautiful old stone churches which are popular for weddings.

The Long Island Museum is where you can catch up on the island’s unique history and culture. Relics from the slave trade, sugar and rum plantations and early colonial life provide some fascinating insights. The island itself is dotted with many ruins of former plantation homes and mansions which you can view by exploring the island.

Hamilton’s Cave has artifacts and several prehistoric cave drawings that are believed to be from Lucayan Indians. The Lucayans are believed to have been the original inhabitants of the Bahamas. Tours take you to explore the cave system and view the relics and cave paintings.

The Christopher Columbus Memorial is a 15-foot tall stone obelisk erected on the northernmost tip of Long Island in tribute to the explorer. From the monument, there are spectacular views over the Caribbean. Down below are beautiful reefs for snorkeling and diving.

Columbus Harbor is so named as it is believed to be where the famous explorer anchored when he stopped to explore the Bahamas. The bay is sheltered and ideal for swimming and snorkeling. A unique feature of the bay is that it has two outer beaches located a half-mile out to sea.

Turtle Cove is home to a 660-foot deep blue hole. Believed to be the deepest worldwide, the hole opens up into a giant underwater cavern. Popular as a diving spot, snorkelers can also enjoy the reef shallows without having to venture too far.

Getting to Long Island Resorts

Long Island is located in the Out Islands, 150 miles south of Nassau. International flights route through Nassau and there are charter connections on to Stella Maris Airport on Long Island. Private chartered flights can also be arranged and these are often the preferred means of getting to the island. Long Island can also be reached by a ferry that operates to and from Nassau on a weekly basis.

When to Visit Long Island

The tropical climate of the Bahamas makes Long Island an ideal year-round location. Even the winter months are balmy and you can soak up the warm sun all year long. Winter is slightly less humid and fewer rain showers occur. The summer months can get particularly hot and visitors should ensure that they have adequate sun protection at all times.
