Fodor's Expert Review Schooner Bay
Many of the homes and cottages in this designer community are available for rent. All are beautifully decorated and fully outfitted with everything you'd need in a vacation home. Select from two-, three-, or four-bedroom homes that are all just a quick walk to the four pristine white-sand beaches accessible only from within Schooner Bay. Full provisioning is available, or you can head on down to the tiny general store and the community farm to stock up. The sports complex includes tennis and a half basketball court as well as beach volleyball and pickleball. There are also five miles of marked trails through the 50-acre protected hardwood forest and kayaks and paddleboards waiting on the beach. Once dinner is done, hike up to the iron shore (exposed coral reef) for some of the most incredible stargazing outside of a planetarium. Cars must be parked at the community entrance. From there you can only enter the village on foot, bicycle, or golf cart.
