Long Island is the place to go if you want a non-commercialized vacation. There is so much to do. Don't expect any golf courses or glitzy hotels like Nassau, but that is what makes this place so special!

Although we stayed at Cape Santa Maria on the North End, being spoiled by a beach that felt and looked like baby poweder, the best part was bumping along the island in a rental car, seeing the beauty of the island. Dean's Blue Hole should be one of the wonders of the world (Google it!) and you may have it all to yourself, with the exception of some local Bahamians cliff jumping into it. It has an allure, a mystique, that you will not forget. Your kids will love it! True, restaurants are few, but that's part of the charm. With only 4,000 people on the island, you have peace and quiet and awesome views. LOVE this place. Someday we will have a home on the island and embrace this culture.

I find Long Island to be a beautiful place with beautiful people. It is not a hub of activity, little night life, limited shopping, and quite rural. Excellent fishing, caving, diving, snorkling, and beach walking. A wonderful place to sit and unwind, drink a cold Kalik and eat fresh seafood.

If your planning a trip to the Bahama's pick a different island, Long Island is awful.
It is untidy, rubbish everywhere, houses falling down and others half built, human sewage not far from certain beaches, roads are alot to be desired (and this does not change throughout the entire island). There are some lovely beaches but the locals are not helping themselves by how they treat there own island theres rusted out cars, car parts and tyres everywhere !
I would not recommend anyone to go here.
