There is a new restaurant and lodge on the northwest side of Long Island at Deals Beach off of Harvey Bay. (See Explorer Chartbook Far Bahamas,Chart LI4). The Beach Bungalow Restaurant and Bar has recently opened.
You can sail across Exuma Sound from George Town, anchor close to shore (if you are shallow draft) and dinghy ashore to the new Beach Bungalow Restaurant and Bar. There are kayaks for your use or you can take a swim and lounge on their beach or just have a cool drink enjoying the turquoise blues. It’s a beautiful spot under the casuarinas, and the cracked conch ranks with the best in the Bahamas.
If you have guests coming in to Long Island, they can rent a room at the lodge across the street. See www.beachbungalowsbahamas.com.
