  • MacDuff's Bar & Grille

    Norman's Cay Restaurants

    The only place to eat on the island where someone else does the cooking is MacDuffs. We dinghied in one afternoon, and had drinks at the bar (didn't eat there). Bob had a sprite and I had a rum revenge without the rum. (Pineapple, orange & coconut). It was very good. During the super bowl, there was a super bowl party here, and the revelers tried...

  • The Downfall of a Drug Dealer

    Norman's Cay Favorites

    In 1977, a Columbian of German ancestory named Carlos Lehder, who was a part of the Medellin cocaine Cartel, bought a villa on Norman's Cay. Carlos was apparently a quite a forceful flamboyant character with big ideas. His idea was that drug running could be even more profitable if small planes were used to fly cocaine in to the States, rather than...

    The only inhabitants on Allen's Cay are the iguanas. The only way to access the islands is by dinghy. Unfortunately, we didn't get in to the island because there was too much wind.The Allen's Cay iguana is a large (to 1000mm total length) subspecies of C. cychlura. Only two breeding populations of this subspecies are known, on Leaf Cay and U Cay...

  • Anchorage

    Allen Cay Sports & Outdoors

    In the middle between Leaf and Allens Cays is an anchorage. We went into the anchorage hoping to find a spot so that we could visit the iguanas. But Bob thought it was entirely too crowded, so we anchored off the western shore. This was perfectly OK as long as the wind wasn't from the west. It was too windy (but from the east) for us to get off the...

    The iguanas on Allen Cay are a rare and endangered species which is not found anywhere else in the world. The presents a problem for the Bahamian authorities because people like to visit the cay and see and feed the iguanas. I don't have a picture of the iguanas because the weather was such that we did not go ashore.This is what the site on...

  • I came I saw I conchered

    Great Exuma Island Restaurants

    The Bahamian conch seems to be the national dish or at least the main ingredient and few bars and restaurants in the island fail to sell conch salad, cracked conch, conch fritters or conch chowder. The best known in the Exumas is Big D’s Famous Conch Spot, a wooden shack on a mile long beach near the north west tip. Just as everyone goes to the Two...

    As long as the wind isn't from the west, this is a nice place to anchor and wait for a mooring at the Exumas Land and Sea Park. Some snorkling too.

    We weren't lucky enough to have the wind from the east. See the narrative under Exumas District.

    Equipment: Bring everything with you - no people live here.
