THE BERRY ISLAND’S

The Berry Islands, or the “fishbowl of The Bahamas” are a chain of islands covering about thirty square miles of the northwestern part of the “Family Islands”.

The “Berries” consist of about thirty islands and over one hundred small islands called cays (pronounced keys) most of which are still relatively undeveloped, with no major airport or hotels. Most of the islands are uninhabited, however, those that are occupied, are owned by wealthy persons seeking seclusion for a second home.

Fishing Tournament

Besides the remoteness of these islands, making them perfect for those individuals who crave a quite corner of paradise, the islands attract scuba divers, snorkelers. The annual fishing tournament lures fishermen keen to land a prizewinning billfish, tuna, grouper, tiger fish, yellowtail snapper, whaoo, or king mackerel. In fact, Chub Cay is known as the bill fishing capital of The Bahamas.

Cruise Ship

Little Stirrup Cay is leased to RCI (Royal Caribbean International) who calls it “Coco Cay”, a private island for cruise ship passenger activities.
