Bahamas Berry Island


Great Harbor Cay is the most northern and the largest of the Berry Islands. It is eight miles (13 km) long and one and a half miles (2.4 km) wide. The largest port of the Berries is on Great Harbor Cay.

Mamma Rhoda Rock, this spiky, shallow coral reef, is a must for divers; only 16 feet high, crawfish and moray eels share living space in the hole-filled rocks.

Queen's Beach offers three miles of sandy, pine-treed beach. Sand Dollar Hill is sandy shoal offering great shell pickings.

A must see for visitors, Sugar Beach Caves are considered by many the prettiest place in the Islands of The Bahamas. The area has many sandy coves set among cliffs, which are said to resemble the great Mediterranean beaches. The shelling is excellent and, for the more adventurous, the creeks are filled with many species of wild life.

Many of the cays, like Frazier’s Hog Cay and Bonds Cay are privately owned. Other private cays include Crab Cay, Cock Roach Cay, Froozen Cay, Alder Cay, Bird Cay and Petit Cay.

Getting around

Inter-island Bahamas mailboats depart from Nassau and run weekly roundtrip to and from all islands.

Taxi service is available. Although metered rates vary by island, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.
