Grotto Bay Bahamas Review

In the settlement of Salt Pond is this small private hideaway, a labor of love for owners Kris and Jean who built three lovely guest rooms (with sweeping decks facing the ocean) on the lower level of their home. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, each with a microwave, refrigerator, and coffeemaker. This is a perfect place for water-sports enthusiasts, as the owners are professional divers and can arrange all sorts of great experiences for their guests. Both have worked on underwater scenes in movies such as Sphere. Grotto Bay practically sits on top of the Salt Pond Cave, one of the largest dry caves in the Bahamas, with two enormous chambers featuring stalagmites and stalactites, and six documented species of bats. Guests also have exclusive use of the beach, hammocks, horseshoe pit, beach volleyball, kayaks, and snorkeling equipment.
