The Hidden Gem of The Bahamas

by /bio/caribbeanblue »

World travelers seeking something different from the usual tourist experience instantly fall in love with Long Island, Bahamas. 

Want to get away from the crowds and enjoy some of mother natures most breath taking wonders all to yourself? It’s just a hop, skip, and jump off the beaten path and really easy to get to. This quaint botanical island has some of the nicest beaches in the world with pristine blue and turquoise waters, soft white and pink sand, and miles of it all to yourselves... Talk about romantic getaway and also perfect for the whole family. There is so much to see and do.

Long Islanders enjoy a simple way of life fishing, farming, boat building, and enjoying a local Bahamian beer. You can try the freshest fish, seasonal fruits and vegetables, wild boar, and mutton, all abundant on the island. 

Though kept a good secret from the world, tourism is one of the island’s strong points providing exciting activities from scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, sea kayaking, fishing of many types (bone, fly, deep sea, spear), cave and eco tours, hiking, biking, shelling, and lounging on the beautiful beaches. 

If it’s history you crave, Long Island has plenty to explore from historical churches, centuries old plantation ruins, a museum, to a Columbus monument on the northern sea cliffs marking the first landing of Christopher Columbus and crew in 1492 before reaching the Americas.

Long Island is rich in natural wonders that include: Deans Blue Hole (deepest blue hole in the world), vibrant coral reefs such as “Coral Gardens” and “Rainbow Reef”, wrecks, and walls to scuba or snorkel, dolphins, sea turtles, sting rays, caves, and much more! 

We have a beautiful vacation home available on this island if you would like to come visit and experience this amazing destination. Feel free to ask us more about traveling to Long Island, Bahamas.
