Long Island, Bahamas

Getting to Long Island

By Air
While getting to the Bahamas from Miami takes about 35 minutes on a big plane, getting to Long Island lasts about 45 minutes on a smaller one. Long Island is about 175 miles southeast of Nassau, so the fastest and most convenient way to get there is by flight. Southern Air, Pineapple Air, and Bahamas Air all provide daily flights to Long Island, sometimes twice a day. Generally speaking, each way is about $95. Be careful, there are two airports on Long Island. Make sure you get off at the right one. Don't be afraid to ask the Pilot! Take a look at the links to their websites below.
By Sea
There is no regular ferry or cruisline that services Long Island and there doesn't seem to be evidence of such coming online for a long time. However, there is a "mail boat" which brings materials and supplies to the island. Although, it takes about a day to make the journey. .
Getting Around the Island
Other than hitchhiking which is culturally the norm down there, renting a car is the best way to get around. It might be an island but there is 80 miles of it and lots of interesting places to go see. Look below to see what is available in terms of vehicles on Long Island.

Renting A Car

Take a ride on the wild side.

For an island there are quite a few places to see and the best way to do it is by car. It might seem old fashioned, but just call these numbers to the right and ask for a rate..

Keep in mind that gasoline is much more expensive here and there are only so many places to fill up. Thus, plan your trips accordingly, but don't stay in the car. Get out and enjoy the fresh air..
