Berry Islands

General Information

The Berry Islands might attract the weary Bill Gates or Steve Forbes types. It also draws fishermen, but this string of islands, which has only 700 residents, is mainly for escapists -- rich escapists. The islands' very limited accommodations (some of which used to be private clubs) lie near the Tongue of the Ocean, home of the big-game fish.

A dangling chain of cays and islets on the eastern edge of the Great Bahama Bank, the unspoiled and sereneBerry Islands begin 56km (35 miles) northwest of New Providence (Nassau), 242km (150 miles) east of Miami. This 30-island archipelago is known to sailors, fishermen, yachtspeople, Jack Nicklaus, and a Rockefeller or two, as well as to the beachcombers who love its pristine sands.
