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.
You will discover an abundance of beaches to consider on and near the island. If you enjoy having lots of space around you, you are likely to be rewarded, since some of these beaches are relatively secluded and quiet. You can click on each beach name to read a detailed article concerning that beach.
Cape Santa Maria Beach: The remarkably clear, calm water of Galliot Cay make for phenomenal water activities including snorkeling, diving, swimming, kayaking and sailing. So whether it's adventure you're after or a relaxing place to soak up the sun, this beach has it covered.
Another location worth considering 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: From Clarence Town on the southern half of the island, you will find a lone south-bound road. Take it south all the way to the opposite coast. The road gets more and more sandy as you go along, so take caution.
