Where in the world do I start? Spanish Wells was our destination choice for this trip simply because my husband and I needed a true "get away" from everything, to completely disconnect it that's possible from our busy work at home. We took books, and planned to do nothing other than to rest and relax in the water, on the water and on the beach. This was by far the BEST beach we have ever been on. The seclusion, privacy, peace and quiet were unmatchable. The only sound was an occasional seagull and the waves crashing. Absolute heaven. The house was stocked with everything we needed to get by for a week. We arrived a little later in the day on the day before Bahamian Labor Day, so Lorraine advised us to run to the grocery store before unpacking bc they wouldn't be open the next day. We got enough staples to last the week, with the exception of water and ice, we did have to return for those a couple of times. We were not looking to explore or get off of Spanish Wells, so truly each day was spent either on the beach or on the boat. We snorkeled twice off The Devils Backbone. My most exciting day was snorkeling that turned into a starfish hunt. I love starfish and we found several. I also snorkeled right in front of the Villa and found several conch, one starfish and several sea urchin shells. My husband had packed his kindle and read the days away either on the beach or under the palapa. We tried kayaking but the days we chose the water was really too strong so we didn't do much of that. We really enjoyed the use of the boat! We really only ate at 2 places The Shipyard and Buddhas. The food at The Shipyard is really good, but the atmosphere at Buddhas is great! We did happy hour there and had really great food...if you're a burger fan you must try the slurger burger. You cannot beat the chill laid back atmosphere of this iconic little island. The people are wonderful friendly people, and so accepting of tourists. We felt like we had stepped back in time to the late 60's early 70's where life was so simple, fun, safe and friendly. They wave from their porches, cars, and especially the golf carts. That was my favorite part of the trip, that you could get around on a golf cart so readily. I could say more, but the most important thing to say is this. Don't wait, don't worry it is a no brainer. Conch Shell was perfection for us!
