The Southern Out Islands Hotels

Crooked Island Lodge


  • Take a lot of insect repellent and have it on when you step out of the plane
  • Don't go unless you want remote, private, and nothing to do but fish and relax

Fodor's Review

A true anglers' paradise, this is one of the best flats, inshore, and offshore fishing destinations in the Bahamas and Caribbean. Shaded by coconut palms, the remote property on Crooked Island's northwestern tip has miles of open beach at its doorstep and unobstructed views of the emerald water surrounding Bird Rock Lighthouse. Rooms, renovated in 2009, are motel-style units; ask for an ocean view. The main lodge—which has a restaurant, bar, and library—once housed the Bahamas' first post office. Captain Robbie Gibson leads snorkeling, diving, reef, and offshore fishing adventures. All-inclusive bonefishing and offshore fishing packages are available with top guides ranging from $1,350 for four-day packages to $3,000 for a week. Pros: mind-bending ocean and beachfront location; good on-site restaurant and bar; private airstrip on the property for easy access.
