Activities and Dining: On the island you can go shelling and looking for sand dollars on the flats on the south side of the island at low tide. This beautiful beach is known as 'Shell Beach'. It is worth a visit just to see it. You can also explore the caves and abandoned hotel on the north side, just a few minutes from the house. There are a few restaurants on the island that serve delicious Bahamian and International food. Enjoy conch fritters, or grouper fingers with a drink at the Rocky Hill Pool Bar & Reaturant at the Marina. Also Coolie Mae's in Bullock's Harbour serves delicious cracked conch and she can make you Banana Bread. Carriearl is another great place that serves international cuisine and Marty's rum punch is a favourite. At certain times of the year you can partake in local festivals and celebrations: every Friday in late June to mid July is Junkanoo, & the first week in August is Lobsterfest. However, if you just want to relax, read a good book or nurse a tropical drink in paradise, this is the perfect place!
Fishing and Boating: Don't miss a delicious lunch at Flo's Restaurant, finding the Blue Hole on Hoffman Cay and exploring the surrounding cays. Percy or Joe Darville are excellent fishing guides and can maneuver you through the flats to bonefish or take you deep sea fishing. There is fantastic snorkeling and sport fishing. Please note only Hawaiian slings may be used for spear fishing. You can expect to catch snappers, grouper, yellowtail, lobster and conch. You can rent boats from Elron at Happy People at the Marina.
