Activities


Do as much or as little as you desire.

Relaxing is definitely at option at Whymms Villas on our beautiful beach!  Or lots to do right at your villa... kayaking, beach walks, swimming, lounging, reading, sunbathing, and boating.  

But, we also encourage you to check out the variety of sites and activities on Long Island.  The beauty, features, and adventures are world class.  Brilliant coral reefs, pristine sand bars and serene beaches make Long Island an amazing gem that must be experienced. Home to free diving championships and thrilling encounters with sea life, this tranquil island offers a few surprises.





Boat Tours 

Long Island is endowed with natural beauty and charm that provides endless opportunities to experience nature. 

Enjoy beautiful turquoise water, and pop up sand bars (aka private islands!) and then go feed and swim with the pigs.  Such a blast!

Snorkel at a sunken plane turned reef that attracts fish, sharks, and rays.  Wildlife viewing is also abundant from the comfort of the boat... birds, rays, sharks, starfish.   

Check out all the options at: Long Island Boat Rentals & Tours


Diving and Snorkeling

Long Island's clear waters offer a treasure of coral reefs teeming with marine life. Divers can swim and feed reef sharks, an experience offered nowhere else in the world. Whether you want to go cave diving or dive in the fascinating Deans Blue Hole, Long Island is a great place to explore and get a glimpse of tropical sea life in the Caribbean.  Contact Captain Delbert Smith for rental gear and tour options: captaindelbert@hotmail.com 242-338-6001

Experiences

Dean's Blue Hole - The blue hole is a beautiful site and a lovely way to spend the day.  Snorkeling, swimming, and for those who dare... swim across the depths of the blue hole. 

Columbus - Lucayan Monument - On the north end of the island, check out the monument dedicated to Christopher Columbus' arrival and the aboriginal Bahamians, the Lucayans. This area provides some stunning views. 

Flamingos and Other Birds - A small flock of flamingos migrated from Inagua to Long Island a few years ago and made their home at the southern tip of the island. Among the other species found here is a large flock of the endangered West Indian whistling duck.

Omar's Island Ting - A fun beach area with lots of water toys and a jovial vibe.

Bar Hopping - The most fun bars and restaurants abound on Long Island, both beachside and roadside. 

You can start at the farthest north end of the island at Busted Bridge and have a Kalik every couple of miles, until you reach the furthest southern point at Gordon's Beach Bar

A few highlights on your trip (with a DD, of course) are
