Returned from 9 day stay at Ryan's Ocean View. Fabulous weather, beautiful home on the water with spectacular views of the Atlantic on one side and gorgeous sunsets on the other. The house was more than we anticipated! The photos do not do it justice! Beautifully decorated, excellent location on the island. Close to activities and grocery/liquor stores. Enjoyed happy hours at the Flying Fish Marina, diving the Blue Hole. Spent a day in the northern part of the island, diving at Stella Maris, and visited the resort at Santa Maria (beautiful beach). Both worth the hour drive north. The Bahamians are very friendly and Long Island is very safe. It is more low key than its neighbors, Abaca, Exuma or Eleuthera. Wonderful place to relax and take in the beautiful scenery of the island! Excellent beaches on the island, particularly Lochibar with its own blue hole. Unspoiled and empty.
