The Islands of the Bahamas.
Located in the lower left hand corner of the Atlantic Ocean is a 70,000 square mile area of shoals and banks, where the waters are warm and clear.
These are the Bahama Banks, and out of them rise more than 700 islands and islets covered with greenery and blossoms fringed with inviting beaches. The islands are strewn in a generally northwest/southeast array, along a 750 mile stretch from just off Florida. Some of the islands are relatively large. Abaco, Andros, Cat Island, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama and Long Island for example. Many are tiny enough to provide a romantic hideaway for two people, with a picnic lunch tucked into their small sail boat for an all day rendezvous away from the world.
Long Island is located 350 miles from Fort Lauderdale Florida and 160 miles from Nassau. There are two airports on Long Island, Deadman's Cay, which is approximately 40 minutes drive South and Stella Maris airport, which benefits from port of entry status. Both offer regular scheduled services to Nassau.
Long Island is divided by the tropic of Cancer and bordered by two very different coasts, one with rocky cliffs and caves that dip suddenly into the sea, and the other with mile upon mile of calm, empty, sandy beaches.
Long Island is one of the last of its kind, truly safe, friendly and unspoilt, it's also home to some of the world's finest waters for boating and sailing.
The coastline here is stunning, the crashing surf and hidden coves of the Atlantic side contrasting with the empty, sandy beaches on the Caribbean side.
The island provides space to escape from the stress of modern life. Read about Stella Maris Resort
