Berry Islands Luxury Yachting Guide

Situated southeast of Bimini and comprising a cluster of 30 cays, the Berry Islands are often referred to as "The Fish Bowl of the Bahamas” owing to their popularity as a fishing destination.

Indeed, Chub Cay, also home to modern marina, is known as The Billfish Capital of The Bahamas, thanks to it bordering the Tongue of The Ocean which enables it to attract countless numbers of baitfish. As well as fishing, many of its cays are also popular for snorkeling, hiking, diving and beachcombing.

The jewel in the Berry Islands crown is Great Harbour Cay, once a major golf resort for the rich and famous, which boasts seven continuous miles of beautiful beaches and one of the best protected harbours in The Bahamas.

Speaking of golf, the islands are still home to a number spectacular courses which attract golf enthusiasts to the area all-year-round. Indeed, the presence of so many high quality golf courses has encouraged many to come and live here, leading to the claim of there being more millionaires per square inch on the Berry Islands than most places on earth.

Yet the islands are also unmistakeably secluded, with its population of just 700 people sporadically supplemented by affluent holiday home owners. Other than golf, more transient visitors are likely to be keen to explore the islands’ more adventurous pursuits, including diving the numerous wreck sites that can be found here, as well as a 600-foot-wide blue hole.
