    Definitely different and intriguing! Deans Blue Hole is something to see. For our visit there was a platform in the middle of the hole because I guess they are using it for free dives so it ruined the pics. The days we went it was too windy for our drone and that’s the best way to get a picture. Wear sneakers and hike around and up the cliff then at least you get a good camera angle. It is a beautiful attraction and you could easily spend the day here. Nature is incredible and the fact that this exists you must see it!!

    Intriguing visit to the caves. Leonard was knowledgeable and told us lots of interesting facts. His personal stories were also fun. The bats are cool, and Leonard points out the several different species that are in the cave. I would have thought the bats would scare me but they don’t bother with you at all. There are some land crabs…and other creatures. The light coming in provides some cool photos too! It’s definitely a must do!! Bring bug spray!!!

    Amazing hidden gem! The most crystal clear water that is so calm and serene. We enjoyed this place with our large group and the staff treated us like family. We had everything we could need and more! The restaurant food and drinks were worth the wait. Shoutout to fabulous employees: Pinky, Kelly, Nadine, Idella, Jasmine, and more. We will be back! P.S. Bring bug spray for morning and night.

    We have visited Long Island again 3.5 years later... and while having the car it was a no brainer to visit this part of the island - despite not as nice and shiny water the visit was once again very pleasant and rich in vistas - this place is secluded, peaceful and picturesque - while the first time we did it on the "way back" to the hotel and were somewhat in a rush... if that word even remotely can be used next to Bahamas... this time we actually stayed next door and were able to take our sweet time - I truly recommend doing so!

    As a Bahamian with Long Island roots, this was an awesome and educational experience. I learnt the history and culture of Long Island and The Bahamas. It was fun to recognize certain artifacts from spending time in Long Island or with grandparents in my childhood. This is a must visit when visiting Long Island.

    We were lucky enough to stay on the property next to the pool. We went to the pool nearly every day. We went at high tide, low tide…just to soak this in. The tide pool sits inside the roaring Atlantic Ocean. When the tide comes in it fills and you can watch the ocean moving all around you as you sit in this lil oasis. There is a walking boardwalk to the pool at Moonshine restaurant and rock stairs into the pool. Bring your camera it’s truly amazing!

    Didn't know what to expect coming to this side of the island, other than the restaurant here but apparently the bridge is brand new allowing people to walk (no cars!) to the other cay where you can access yet another beach/cove. Pretty mangroves around - it's not a must but somehow I really enjoyed the area and the little pathway to beach was something refreshing to do as a small walk.

    We arrived at a small building overlooking the bay at about 8:45 am, which our hostess on the island told us was a good time to go. Inside were about 8-10 local farmers sitting with their wares and chatting. One woman was doing straw work to pass the time.

    There were many tropical fruits and some vegetables there for better prices than the local grocery stores (and many of them weren't available at the stores). The farmers were willing to chat with us when we asked questions about the fruits, and some of our questions turned into a lively discussion that was a pleasure to listen to and gave a window into the joys and concerns of life in the Family Islands.

    We bought several types of mangos, soursop, papaya, watery rose apple, and a spinach-like vegetable. We tried island "plums"--June plums were in season--for the first time and bought some. We bought a loaf of fresh homemade bread, which tasted amazing. We also bought some of Ms. Eva's homemade jam--fabulous!

    I highly recommend going to the Farmers market if you're near Salt Pond on a Saturday morning, both for the excellent produce and for the chance to interact with residents.

    Yan, April, and crew did a fabulous job with our large group. We had the best time dancing on the boat, snorkeling, holding cute pigs, and eating delicious food! The boat was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.

    Four of us went on an all day excursion with Teresa and Charles which exceeded our expectations! They were so gracious and very informative. Learned a lot about mangroves and how vital they are to the ecosystem.
    Charles and Teresa took us to see the swimming pigs, to gorgeous sandbars, through a channel searching for marine life….. saw loggerheads, green turtles, an eagle ray, lemon shark, starfish….. amazing!!
    To add to the Robinson Crusoe vibe, we were served a terrific meal on a secluded cay. Teresa’s coconut tarts were an absolute delight!
    Just a totally memorable day. We started as strangers…. but ended as friends… who I hope to connect with again on a future trip to Long Island.

    FANTASTIC DAY. Marvin is amazing. Very knowledgeable and such a nice, friendly individual. Took us to see the pigs, sand bars, turtles, starfish, and rays. Amazing views from the ocean. Would highly recommend this trip with Marvin.

    Luke was recommended to us as the best boat/snorkeling/reef fishing guide on the island. We had a great day out along the east Atlantic coast, in beautiful snorkel and fishing spots among reef fish, turtles, rays, barracuda, and sharks, all tailored to our requirements. Would recommend highly -
