Long Island.
Only 80 miles long and 4 miles wide Long Island is one of the most scenic locations in The Islands of the Bahamas. Famous for its world class scuba diving and bone-fishing the island is divided by the Tropic of Cancer and bordered on each side by contrasting coasts, the Caribbean side with soft white beaches, and the Atlantic coast with rocky headlands that descend into the sea with beautiful blue crashing waves. The topography of the island varies from sloping hills in the north east, to low hillsides in the south, to stark white flatlands and pristine beaches... all of which combine to create a picturesque landscape and a haven for sailors, sun worshippers, holidaymakers and water sports enthusiasts alike.
Long Island, Bahamas.
Long Islands' beauty lies not only its unique topography, but also in its startling blue and green waters which gently lap at miles and miles of white powder and pink sand beaches. This beautiful island is well known to lots of discerning holiday makers, divers and boaters.
News. Recently a new real estate development, Port St George, planned for the Stella Maris area in the north of the island, received government permissions to develop 1000 acres of property into a new, upscale marina and golf resort.
