The Southern Out Islands Travel Guide

South Long Island: Deadman's Cay to Gordon's

The most populated area on the island is Deadman's Cay. This umbrella central settlement covers all the communities stretching from Gray's to the north to Scrub Hill, and is the social, economic, and educational center of the island. The Deadman's Cay airport is in Lower Deadman's Cay and the infamous Max's Conch Bar is only a short distance to the south. Shops, restaurants,

and bars dot this area, along with amazing views of the Bahamas Banks.

Past Scrub Hill is Dean's Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole in the world. Free-diving contests, without use of any breathing apparatus, are held here each year, and divers come from all over the world to challenge the record. Fantastic snorkeling can be had around the blue hole's edges.
