A remote yet accessible hideaway, Long Island has a wealth of opportunity for the discerning traveller to be as active or relaxed as they choose. Over 80 miles long, though no more than four miles wide at any point, the Island remains remarkably untouched. This island is divided by the tropic of Cancer and bordered by two very different coasts, one with rocky cliffs and caves that dip suddenly into the sea, and the other with mile upon mile of calm, empty, sandy beaches. The island has an eco-reserve where, in the red mangrove, young turtles thrive, ospreys nest by the side of the road and there is a true natural wonder, the world's deepest blue hole. With villages throughout its length which offer bars restaurants and small hotels, Long Island is one of the last of its kind, a safe, friendly and truly unspoilt, with exceptional fishing and SCUBA diving for all skill levels, from shallow reefs in the calm Caribbean waters, to wall dives and shipwrecks. Long Island is surrounded by some of the world's finest waters for boating, enabling large boats or yachts to make the journey from mainland United States.
With its small, genuinely friendly population anywhere on Long Island is truly peaceful, safe and a sanctuary for nature. The coastline is stunning, with the crashing surf and hidden coves of the Atlantic side contrasting with the empty, sandy beaches on the Caribbean side. The island provides space to escape from the stress of modern life. It is a retreat where nature can be enjoyed and cherished in a wonderful climate.
