About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps up to 6

Start your day with a walk along the secluded powder-sand beach as gentle waves lap at your heels and wash your footprints away. Then grab a snorkel and explore the underwater world of Grotto Bay - you'll be amazed at the colorful coral and enchanting fish that are yours for the viewing right off shore, so be sure to bring your underwater camera! The water in the bay is so crystal clear, so calm, that our 6-year old grandson learned to swim right off our beach!

After a day filled with sun and fun, watch the sun set over the beautiful waters of Grotto Bay as you sip an exotic drink on the front deck - another perfect day in San Sal, and part of a vacation you'll remember forever.

San Salvador is one of the Bahamian out islands, where the pace of life moves slowly, there are no traffic lights, and the people you meet smile at you. The island has about the lowest crime rate in the world, miles and miles of open beach, reefs that you can swim to from shore, crystal clear water (you can see to about sixty feet}, warm in the day 75/85 cools to 65/75 at night.

There's nobody closer to Grotto Beach than you - just 300ft from front porch to beach. The bay has many reefs close in - some are in water less then 5 foot deep {great for the first time snorkeler}

You will be given the phone number for a local person who will meet you at the airport and show you the the house, help you make arrangements for sightseeing, diving, etc. and give you information on what there is to do.

Other Activities: beachcombing, shelling
