Welcome to Long Island
The Bahamas is known for its serene ambiance, pristine beaches, and friendly but industrious people, and one of our islands that truly boasts of that, is Long Island. Welcome to a destination that is a Bahamian treasure all its own. No doubt Long Island has an abundance of natural beauty but it is also rich in culture and history. Born on Long Island, Sir Henry Milton Taylor, one of the founding fathers of Bahamian politics and former Governor General, became an activist for the social and civil freedoms that have a huge impact on Bahamians living today. Also, Long Island caves give researchers from the Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science a place to study bat species of long ago, dating back to the Pleistocene era in their migrations here.
