Shhhh. . .
Let's just keep this between us. . . The Passionate Pelican is a hidden gem on an amazing, unspoiled island. And as much as we'd like to keep it as our little secret, we feel obligated to share it with you. The first thing you will notice is the breath taking, crystal clear turquoise water. Everywhere. Seriously, Long Island is just one 80 mile long road with multiple side "roads" of which just about every one leads you to the Atlantic Ocean or Caribbean Sea within a couple minutes. The next thing you will discover is that you hardly ever encounter anyone else on the beach, just your own footprints greeting you on your way back. Once you've caught your breath after taking in the remote beauty, you'll realize there are no tourist here (at least as we define tourist) except you. Everyone is either a born and bred local, a transplanted local, or someone looking for a quiet respite from the world, usually on an extended stay because trust me, a week is never enough time on Long Island. No hotels (again, as per our definition) or chain restaurants. Next, you might encounter the islands critters - goats, sheep, pigs, crabs, flamingos (infrequently seen, but will fly right over The Passionate Pelican) and of course the sea creatures. Be sure to bring snorkel gear, there is a whole other amazing world under the water that is easily seen, but could be missed. You will notice many churches here. Finally, once your 5 senses have taken in all the beauty you can handle, you'll notice the people. And now you've found the true treasure of Long Island. First, Peter and Pam, who are fabulous hosts whom you will love getting to know, have offered their lovely cottage, The Passionate Pelican to be enjoyed by others. The space is the perfect size for a couple and has everything you need. The view (even from the bed) is the most beautiful image my eyes have ever seen. The private sandy beach is minimal, but the sun deck more than makes up for that. The kayak makes for great exploring, and once you've used the outdoor shower you'll never use the indoor one again. The cottage, though nestled in among few other homes, feels very private. When you meet Violet, the caretaker of The Pelican as well as the folks who visit there, you will love her. She takes immaculate care of the cottage and she is available to help you by answering any questions (we've asked many and she is always so kind and sweet.) There are many churches as this is an island full of folks of faith. We were led to Assemblies of God in Salt Pond. Where a gathering of precious people worship God through singing and teaching. I promise you will not be the same after joining those folks in the presence of God. could go on and on about the precious people who inhabit this island. They are humble, gentle, kindhearted people. Don't shortchange yourself, talk to them, listen to their stories. You will never be the same. As you prepare to leave, you will realize your heart rate has slowed down and your perspective has changed. And you'll also know you need to come back regularly to recharge and recenter your life. A priceless investment.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is a 20-minute drive from Deadmans Cay airport and in a neighborhood of other fine homes. Flowers and palm trees line the roadside to the cottage. The nearest town is Clarence Town which is only 1.5 miles from the cottage. Medical clinics are located nearby. There are several island restaurants, a small store and bars located nearby in town. Local made fresh baked bread and other treats may be purchased at Ericas Bakery store close to town. Local people are family friendly and eager to provide answers to your questions. Items of interest are 2 blue holes, one at Deans Blue Hole (Turtle Cove) with one located right at the end of Lochabar Point Beach which is a short walk along the beautiful sand.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
How to get here? Your airline of choice to Nassau (NAS) then fly into Deadmans Cay (LGI). Airlines servicing Long Island are Bahamasair, Southern Air Charter, and also private charters such as Island Wings. Set up a car rental beforehand to provide access around the island and transportation to the cottage. We will provide exact driving directions. On Google Maps the entrance to both cottages can be found by searching for “32RW+R4Q Clarence Town, The Bahamas”. *Important* Deadmans Cay is the main airport on Long Island closest to the cottage. The other airport (Stella Maris - SML) is about an hour drive further away. Some flights to Long Island stop at both airports in a variable order, make sure you get off at the right one. *Tips* If you have a tight connection through Nassau, be sure to use the lane at customs for “connecting passengers” (left side) which is normally much faster. Flights between Nassau and Long Island may need to be booked and ticketed separately from other flights. Even if you’re flying on Bahamas Air from Miami to Nassau then Long Island, Bahamas Air sometimes requires two separate tickets: MIA-NAS, then NAS-LGI. For this reason, travel sites like Expedia may not be able to find connecting flights to Long Island from anywhere other than Nassau. While both Bahamas Air and Southern Air may have 2 flights daily to and from Long Island, Bahamas Air is a larger airline with larger planes (50 vs 19 passengers).
