A small settlement of about 150 residents exists on Great Guana Cay, best known for its gorgeous seven mile long beach and friendly atmosphere.  Tourists typically visit this island for a quiet, peaceful get away but are also fortunate to have access to a number of great activities.  The reef system is just 50 feet from the shore, so you can walk right in and begin a snorkeling or diving adventure, fishing is a fun way to pass the time and perhaps catch your own dinner, and chartering a sail boat will allow you to see some of the other islets and cays in the area. 

Bike and Scooter Rental

Only six miles long, you can be sure that there is little need for rental cars. However, in a place where walking the entire length can be done in just a couple hours, you can be sure that the added speed of a bike or moped is more than enough.

If you are considering feeling the wind on your face as you move along, there is a place that can help. Go to this page about bike and scooter rentals if you want to discover more facts.


Great Guana Cay Diving

With a well developed coral reef located just fifty feet off shore, divers will be able to set up on the beach and walk out into the sea - much cheaper than dives requiring the use of a boat.

You'll find two dive services and at least 4 interesting dive sites to choose from. Go to this extended discussion dedicated to diving in this area if you want to find out more information.


Between the months of April and September, fishermen from around the world make their way to Great Guana Cay in hopes of trying their skills against the many fish that call the area home.
