Cambridge Cay is a mooring field within the boundaries of Exuma Land and Sea Park. In my opinion, it is truly a little slice of heaven! I loved this place! There were trails to walk / hike, plenty of snorkelling, and it is protected all 'round. So it is always peaceful in the anchorage.
Unfortunately, my underwater ...
We anchored off of Bell Island for one night before heading around the corner to Little Bell.
Bell Island is privately owned by the Aga Khan. There is a marina being built there and ships, barges and equipment were arriving daily. The sand that they've dredged out has all been piled high on the far side of the island (you can see it from LIttle Bell / Cambridge Cay). ...
... prepare dinner for your party if you made a reservation in the afternoon, but that's the way it is in most places going through the Cays. It was a beautiful resort that they have obviously re-done recently. Everything was so clean and modern. We spoke with one of the new partners who was telling us about their plans. They are expanding ...
I got to see the iguanas!!! But boy! The 'price' we paid to see them was less than worth it. Allen's Cay, although beautiful, was very uncomfortable. At least I thought so. Maybe it was just the days while we were there, but the swift current, with the opposing wind, and a less-than-desirable holding ground made for one ...
Ahhhh!!! It's a NEW DAY!!!
The rolling lasted for a total of about 60 hours…but it's finally gone! Since about 8am today we've enjoyed a calm harbour and beautiful sunshine and warmth again!
That's what it's all about out here…taking every day as it comes! And today ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Emerald Palms by the Sea Andros
We just returned from a week at the Emerald Palms with our two children (16 year old and a 22 month old). We were looking for a quite location, that would allow us to relax and enjoy some family time together. The Emerald Palms was the perfect location. The accomodations and facilities are very nice and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist. Donna, the manager, went out of her way to make our stay pleasant (Adam thanks you Donna !!!). CeCe as well was absolutely wonderful !!!!
Our usual vacation is a cruise or stay at a mega resort. However, my wife wanted to get away from that for her birthday this year, and she chose Andros Island after much web research. We chose the Emerald Palms on South Andros for our six day stay in February, 2005 because we had two small children in our party, it was on the beach, and the cottages looked great. We weren't disappointed one bit.
During our island-hopping honeymoon to the Bahamas (I am a pilot and we flew our own aircraft) my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Emerald Palms. Not knowing what to expect I only made arrangements for two-nights. We enjoyed it so much we wound up not continuing on to our next stop, and staying at the Emerald Palms for 3 additional nights!
We realized immediately that we had found an amazing destination. Jerry and I found the Emerald Palms Resort by chance on the internet. We were looking for a place to get married and relax for a few days.

this island has the most friendliest people we have ever met,nothing is too much trouble for them.the hotel wasnt full,you could walk for miles without seeing anyone.the bungalows were very nice and had a/c. we took 2 teenage daughters who enjoyed all the shells that washed up on to the beach every day.an island to go to if you want peace and quiet and lovely people and nice beaches.
You will not be having ----- on the beach anywhere in Nassau. However, at the Emerald Palms, 15 minutes away by regular plane trips from Nassau, you will have the entire beach to yourself. That, plus the best service my wife and I have recieved anywhere, should be enough to get you there. The only place as nice in the Bahamas is Compass Point, but the Emerald Palms has more seclusion, and better service.
In the time it takes for you to wait with a busload of over-loaded (in all possible ways) tourists and get to the Vegas-on-the-beach that is Paradise Island, you could be watching lizards scatter under the palm trees, sititng by pristine tiled coutyards looking out over miles of deserted (yes, actually deserted) golden beach, getting the very personal yet relaxed service that is enough to sell emerald palms on its own.
The accommodations here are first rate. We stayed in a villa. The craftsmanship of this freestanding bungalow was outstanding, the furnishings were top notch, the AC was cold and everything worked. Even the solar hot water was ample for a lengthy shower. The food was excellent. We were treated on a couple of occasions (by our request) with some local fare. The staff at the EP was pleasant and courteous. We would stay here again without hesitation.
We were the only ones there for an entire week several years ago. It is small in size but super in every aspect. Unless there are now facilities, take your own dive or snorkel equipment. Beach is excellent and very very very few people.
