Please do not come here and tell everybody how great it is! I want to keep coming back and have it stay just as it is...so perfect. Just kidding, go visit and enjoy...We have been three times in two years, and plan to keep coming back.

Avoid Southern Air at all costs. Nightmare trip to/from Nassau with Southern Air costing us a day of vacation and nearly a missed flight home. We don’t think it had any planes since we ended up on other carriers both flights. Hours and hours of delay with no information or outright lies. Be warned.

My family loves Long Island. It’s grown a bit in the eight years since our last visit. But still a laid back place with friendly people and incredible remote beaches.

We wanted to give a shout out to
Fiona’s Sweet Treats and Catering.

Fiona is a nice lady and an excellent cook. We stayed at an AirBNB in the Stella Maris area. Fiona brought meals to our house three times. Each meal was better than the last. Fresh fried fish, peas and rice, Mac and cheese were all so good. Our best meal on the island was her curried fish and rice, conch fritters, coleslaw and steamed vegetables. Highly recommend you give Fiona a try. You can reach her at 242 557 1222. You won’t regret it!

Long island is a beautiful out island! Wonderful people and great beaches! Flew in from Cat Island after a week there & spent a week on Long island. Would recommend Marty Fox with Island Wings for private charter. Recommended excursions would be-
Deans blue hole, Columbus monument, Cape Santa Maria beach Max's Conch shack.
Recommended restaurants- Stella Maris resort & moonstone bar, Cape Santa Maria resort, Eagles nesting, Tiny's hurrican hole & check out the busted bridge bar & grill, the owner is awsome!The hilltop market in the middle of the island is a geat place to buy groceries. Rent a car as everything is spread out and you will need it.

If your planning a trip to the Bahama's pick a different island, Long Island is awful.
It is untidy, rubbish everywhere, houses falling down and others half built, human sewage not far from certain beaches, roads are alot to be desired (and this does not change throughout the entire island). There are some lovely beaches but the locals are not helping themselves by how they treat there own island theres rusted out cars, car parts and tyres everywhere !
I would not recommend anyone to go here.

Not even native Bahamanians visit this island. The beaches are amazing and devoid of visitors. We've been twice and will be back again. Stayed at the Gems of Paradise the first time and Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort the second. Both are amazing. Can't wait to go back!

Having moved from South Florida to Long Island, thirteen years ago, I feel as if I have stepped back in time to a place where everything is real and meaningful. Not only is Long Island stunningly beautiful with it's rocky, wild East Coast (Norside) and it's turquoise, calm 'Caribbean' Coast (Souside), but there is a different, solitary beach to visit each day. The people are fun, hard-working, honest, and spiritual. Supplies are excellent, coming twice weekly from Nassau, internet is good, and the fishing is fantastic: both bone-fishing and deep-sea fishing. Still, this is an island, and has logistical problems since most things arrive by boat and Mother Nature always wins ... just adding to Long Island's allure.

We fly our own small plane into the island. The small airport is great and customs is super easy. The island is just big enough to do some exploring, but most of your time is spent on the beach or snorkeling.

My wife and I came to Long Island for peace and quiet. Boy did we hit the nail on the head. This place has the most beautiful beaches we seen and you will be the only one on them. This is not Nassau. If you want to make new friends, explore, and eat true local food than you need to look at Long Island.

An hour flight from Nassau to a land apart! So no, no swim slides past sharks, no jet skis, no crowds, no hurry, no rotaries, no stop lights, no east-west roads (f0r the most part), no problem! Wonderfully warm folk, lovely beaches, lots of fishing opportunities, and on and on. Take an island tour with Rad for a great experience -- see the caves, swim with pigs, enjoy a quiet sunset. This is a GETAWAY!
