“Quiet getaway, friendly service, fantastic runway!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

As a pilot, this is one of the best destinations in the Bahamian out islands. The parking apron is virtually at the front office, and makes it easy to transport your luggage to the facility. Just so this doesn't scare off the non-aviators, the approach and departure ends of the runway are well away from the beaches.

We definitely consider this a 'get away from it all' kind of place. If you are looking for night life go to Barbados. If you want relaxation and rejuvenation, this is the place for you!

We have been visiting Hawk's Nest since the mid-80s, and just returned from a long absence. One of our most favorite places to stay in the Bahamas is even better! The owners have taken great pride in their resort. We flew our airplane into the adjacent runway and walked the 100 feet to the lobby. For mariners they have a very nice marina, with plenty of fishing nearby.

The beach is just steps away from the room and offers a beautiful bay with clear water. For snorkeling you will have to swim out a ways, or rent a car and go to other sites on the island.

The food is excellent, including fish, steaks, etc. For a real treat try the homemade chocolate ice cream.

Anton, the manager, does an excellent job of managing the property. He was extremely helpful, and we look forward to visiting again.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice!

Our group of 24 stopped her on our island tour. By car it is approx 5 miles on a dirt pothole filled road. We didn't stop at the beach bar but heard the beach had been washed away. We continued driving across the runway to the marina which had a nice beach. You can see the sharks at the dock near the bar. It you continue past the marina there is a nice calm beach

I spent a solid 2 months at Hawk's Nest and absolutely loved it. I was there for fishing, and aside from the incredible fishing, the resort had it's whole own element. It is absolutely amazing there, and it is the perfect place to really get away from it all. The staff is extremely helpful and nice, and they have plenty of water activities to do from fishing to kayaking, paddle boarding, diving, snorkeling, and even just laying out and relaxing on the beach. Here is a video of my time there:

I was involved in an exploratory diving expedition to photograph sharks off the coast of Cat island. Hawk's Nest was the only living spaces within 40 miles of the marina. The people were mostly friendly but it was clear that they were more attuned to fisherman and their needs than divers. We had a meal plan and could only deviate from it with added expense - a lot of added expense. Also be aware that drinks are not included - that means bottled water as well. You will pay plenty for soft drinks and water not to mention beer and other alcohol. Rooms were fairly standard for a small resort. In some the air worked well in others it didn't. Granted the pool was awesome as was the view. Diving was incredible but Hawk's Nest had nothing to do with that. They advertise diving but don't seem to have the capacity. Overall it was about what you would expect from an out island Bahamas resort.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the end have a better view and are quieter.

This is a small resort with only 10 motel-like rooms. There are a couple or so homes for rent also. The only way to reach this resort is by air or boat. The runway is adjacent to the rooms and the marina a few more steps away. For those who come in their own small airplanes, refueling must be done at a nearby island/location as there is no aviation fuel available. This is the kind of resort that allows one to relax and unwind. There are few activities available outside of a lovely pool, the beach and bicylcing. The bar is an honor bar. Staff are friendly and helpful.

We flew in to this private place, Wow! The place is small, but the runway was right next to the resort. Lovely pool, awesome beach and friendly staff!! There is a marina close by, the resort provides bicycles, and great to watch the nurse sharks come by when the fishermen come in!! The beach is great and only a short distance from your room. The food was good, given the remoteness. And am honor bar, really good!!! We would love to go again, but we were travelling with a small group which is good for socializing.
