There are two airstrips on Long Island. The Stella Maris Airport is in the north, and the other, called Deadman's Cay Airport, is in the south, north of Clarence Town. It's highly unlikely that you'll land at Deadman's Cay, and besides, it's a very expensive cab ride from most of the island's accommodations. Bahamasair (tel. 800/222-4262in the U.S.; www.bahamasair.com) flies direct once daily from Fort Lauderdale to Stella Maris, which is near most of the hotels. It's a 45-minute flight.

The mail boat MV Mia Dean sails every Tuesday from Nassau to Clarence Town, a grueling 10-hour journey. For information on mail-boat trips, contact the dock master at Nassau's Potter's Cay Dock (tel. 242/393-1064).
