Attractions on Long Island

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.


Cape Santa Maria Beach

There are an abundance of beaches to consider on and near the island. If you're looking for a quiet getaway, you're in luck, since some of these beaches are relatively secluded and quiet. You can click on the beach names for more detail concerning that section of the coast.

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 location to consider is Columbus Harbour. The beach retreats into the island a good distance in parts, but is mostly pretty thin. The sand is phenomenal, though, and the views spectacular.

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.

These are merely a few of the options that are available. Readers can learn more by going to this page.
