Plenty of yachties make the 220 mile trek east from Florida to this resort and marina, the largest in the Bahamas Out Islands. Reopened after a major reconstruction, the complex features a village atmosphere with a coffeehouse, restaurant, business center, provisions store, dive center, and 4,500-acre private beach reserve. The 67 accommodations are located in their signature 2-level town homes or stylish beach villas.
