Activities and Dining

At low tide go shelling on the flats on the south side of the island. This beautiful beach is known as ‘Shell Beach’. It is worth a visit just to see it. You can also explore the caves and abandoned hotel on the north side, just a few minutes from the house. There are a few restaurants on the island that serve delicious Bahamian and International food, or a local cook can be arranged to prepare local delicacies as conch fritters, peas and rice, conch or lobster salad. At certain times of the year you can partake in local festivals and celebrations: in late June to mid July is Junkanoo, & the first week in August is Lobsterfest.

FISHING AND BOATING

There is fantastic snorkeling, spear fishing and sport fishing as Great Harbour Cay and the surrounding islands have both vibrant and prolific sea life. Please note only Hawaiian slings may be used for spear fishing. You can expect to catch wahoo, snappers, grouper, yellowtail, lobster and conch. For fun day boat trips, don’t miss a delicious lunch at Flo’s Restaurant, finding the Blue Hole on Hoffman Cay and exploring the spectacular surrounding cays. There are excellent fishing guides and that can maneuver you through the flats to bonefish or take you deep sea fishing. Boat rentals and fishing trips with guides can be arranged.
