We were excited about our visit to the Bahamas but hope that we just chose the wrong island. If all Bahamas' islands are this run down the tourist trade will die. It appears that many of the locals from this island have left to find employment in Nassau on the main island. So many of the properties on this island... 更多
We went here on part of a tour and it was well worth the trip. It is a really beautiful area with very unusual fish who come up to see you. We fed the fish and just enjoyed the very large waterway that is very, very deep.
We were just passing thru on to Lighthouse Beach but we say enough to know we should have allowed for more time.

Rock Sound is one of our favorite stopping points on our way through the Bahamas. Rock Sound provides superior wind coverage when a cold front goes through the area.

If you sail, you'll find a great cove in which to anchor and easy access to food and sundries. You'll have to buy... 更多
One of the few towns. Road right by water. Was nice. We stopped and bought fish from some fisherman cleaning... 更多
