Long Island Highlights

From the high cliffs in the north, home of the Columbus Monument, to the secluded coves on the Atlantic, to the tranquil bays on the Caribbean side, there is a shoreline just for you. Shelling, sunning or strolling, our beaches are unsurpassed. Pick a sand color. White, Pink or in-between.

For the fishermen among us, you name it, we've got it. Long Island offers exceptional bonefishing flats. The Atlantic side offers great deep sea fishing for billfish as well as wahoo, dorado and other species. In the middle of the pack you can't beat bottom fishing for flag yellowtail or grouper.

The diving and snorkeling is phenomenal. The pristine reefs teeming with life provide ample beauty. You can witness the abundance of reef fish, lobster and conch in our still unspoiled waters. And don't forget Dean's Blue Hole, at 663 feet it is one of the world's deepest, and also home of the second largest underwater cavern.

While we're still in the "water", let's talk a little about the Long Island Regatta. Held in late May or early June, the regatta is a must see. Long Island is home of some of the best boat builders and sailors in the country. As it so happens, the resort is located adjacent to the Regatta site and our pool deck and balconies over look the Regatta course.

As if the shoreline and points outward were not enough, there's more to do. A lot more. The Columbus Monument on the north shore is a breathtaking tribute to the arrival of Christopher Columbus on the 17th of October, 1492. From there south you will find a variety of sightseeing options. Plantation ruins, cave systems, land locked blue holes, the Long Island Library and Museum, numerous historic churches and the abandoned Diamond Crystal salt mine. A colony of Pink Flamingos are often seen at Cape Verde, the southern-most side of the island.
