Please do not come here and tell everybody how great it is! I want to keep coming back and have it stay just as it is...so perfect. Just kidding, go visit and enjoy...We have been three times in two years, and plan to keep coming back.

Long Island is a special place with beautiful, uncrowded beaches and the loveliest local culture I've ever experienced. The local music scene is really fun and the guides and restaurateurs all were so friendly and solicitous. My favorite person there is a guide, Delbert Smith, who took us diving and was awesome. Be sure to take lots of cash to the island since a lot of businesses don't take credit cards and there are only two ATMs for the whole 80-mile-long island. When they run out of cash, you're stuck. Also, in future trips I'll bring good coffee. It's hard to find and after two weeks, I was jonesing for a good cup. Those shortcomings are easy to overcome for the experience of the islands, though.

Husband I went to Long Island July 9, -July 17, 2021. We had a nice quiet time. Island is lovely and safe. It is not a party island at all. If you want peace, quiet safety with nice beaches you can find it here. Food is expensive which is the case in the islands anyway.

We just finished an action packed fishing excursion on the Jus 1 Danz, and it was Great! The boat was clean and well equipped, snacks were provided, the music was lovely, the hospitality even better, but most of all, the fish were plentiful.

Captain Yan, is the man! Highly recommended.

An amazing island; completely free of typical "tourist scene." If you love nature, this is the place to go. We would definitely go again.

Tip for getting there and away: Learn from our mistake, DO NOT FLY SOUTHERNAIR CHARTER. Either use BahamasAir out of Stella Maris airport or pay for your own private charter. SouthernAir Charter cancels their flights and this is apparently a "known" thing. We didn't know this unfortunately. They canceled our return flight because they didn't sell enough tickets. As a result, we lost our last day of vacation as well as the money we'd paid for our rental house, and what should have been one 10-hour travel day home, was turned into two days of travel home with a nearly 24-hr stay on Nassau (a place we never wanted to go).

If your looking for a fantastic day out on a boat be sure to check out Captain Yan Jus1danz. We had an excellent day being treated to everything you could want from an excursion; fishing, swimming, sightseeing, and plenty of dancing and fun.
I highly recommend them.

We fly our own small plane into the island. The small airport is great and customs is super easy. The island is just big enough to do some exploring, but most of your time is spent on the beach or snorkeling.

The water here is super clear and calm. White white sand never hot (the sand that is) laid back and not over run by tourists yet.

Not even native Bahamanians visit this island. The beaches are amazing and devoid of visitors. We've been twice and will be back again. Stayed at the Gems of Paradise the first time and Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort the second. Both are amazing. Can't wait to go back!
