The luxe Fowl Cay Resort in the
Bahamas has a beach-y, laid-back feel - it's all about the sun and the sand
here, not the scene. Crowded beaches are unheard of on this private island
resort, where a maximum of 28 guests at a time have free range of 50 acres and three
beaches; only six villas, ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, comprise Fowl
Cay's accommodations. Each villa includes its own fully stocked kitchen,
spacious living room with massive flat-screen TV and DIRECTV, and multiple
private terraces and decks.
the villas are clean and feature authentic island decor, quality varies from
villa to villa. But personal boats for daily excursions, on-call service and a
host of all-inclusive activities such as free use of kayaks and snorkel
equipment make Fowl Cay a standout gem in the Exumas. Plus, guests love
congregating at the Hill House, located on the highest point of the island with
stunning views of the sunset. Hill House hosts cocktail hour starting at 6:30
every night in the pub, and many guests eat dinner on the veranda.
Cay is a private retreat located among the Exumas Islands, a Bahamian chain at
the apex of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Neighboring islands play
host to a smattering of celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Faith Hill, and
Nicholas Cage, all of whom own vacation homes on privately owned cays.
by small charter plane via Fort Lauderdale or Nassau, the islands are known for
marine life-rich coral reefs, underwater caves, and exceptional yachting.
Flights from Fort Lauderdale on Watermakers Air are around 90 minutes, and
Nassau flights aboard Golden Wings Charter are approximately 40 minutes. Boat
transfers to and from the airstrip are included in resort rates.
