Lubbers Quarters is a small island accessible by boat only. The vacationer needs to have a rental boat to enjoy the many nearby islands, beaches, fishing spots snorkeling, diving, and restaurants. Gone Bananas is a lovely retreat also for the non boater who seeks a relaxing 'away from it all' respite from the hustle and bustle. If you are a non boater, the owners will provide initial transportation to the island and to the mainland upon your departure. Inquire about the details.
