Long Island Attractions

Arrive on Long Island prepared to spend your days outdoors thanks to the fact that all of the local attractions were created by Mother Nature herself.  Beaches are of course the go-to destinations, but this island is also home to the deepest recorded blue hole in the Bahamas. If hiking is your thing, the island's landscape ranges from flat to hilly in no time, making the contrasting terrain great for exploring.

Beaches

Cape Santa Maria Beach

You will find a large selection of beaches to enjoy on and near the island. If you are hoping to enjoy some peace and quiet, you're likely to be pleased, since some of these beaches are fairly secluded and lightly used. Click on the name of the beach for a detailed article concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Cape Santa Maria Beach: This beach is up on the north end of Long Island. Take the main road north up to Galliot Cay on the western coast where you'll find Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort & Villas.

A second place to consider is Columbus Harbour. Not many people make it out to this spot at the northern tip of Long Island, but there will certainly be plenty of places for you to throw down a towel in the sand, soak up some sun, or go for a nice long walk.

Galloway's Landing Beach: Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing, and beach walking are some of the favorite activities you can take part in here. A walk along the beach south will give you even more seclusion and better views of the clear, blue ocean and the tranquil lagoons.

Of course, the area is home to a wide range of beaches on and near the island. If you'd like to dig deeper, you can find more details on this page.
