Long Island is in the Southern Out Islands of the Bahamas, described by Christopher Columbus as “the world’s most beautiful island”
Stella Maris lodge is situated on a high rocky bluff overlooking the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the northern tip of Long Island. The resort is located in a plantation style hotel with two ocean views on some of the highest elevations in the Bahamas. The Club is especially suited for couples and larger parties. Relaxation, sunbathing, diving, and fishing are the sole pastimes here in a quiet setting.
Long established as a resort, the Stella Maris Inn has also been long noted for its superb bonefishing. There are miles long wade-able bonefish flats with schools of smaller bonefish ranging from two to four pounds. Larger bonefish prowl the outer flats.
At your door-step is blue-water fishing for blue and white marlin, sailfish, and yellowfin and blackfin tuna. Fishermen enjoy Stella Maris fishing year round due to the presence of a warm water current.
In addition to the fishing Stella Maris offers sight seeing tours of plantation ruins, cave-exploring, wind-surfing, sailing, full-day snorkeling trips, and the use of bicycles. On the property there are also two freshwater swimming pools and one saltwater pool. The resort has tennis courts and numerous beaches nearby.
Stella Maris is one of the best places to learn how to scuba-dive. The Stella Maris Inn gained its fame when it allowed divers around the world to swim amongst the sharks. The Inn has a very good diving program with one of the best dive masters in the Bahamas. Stella Maris also offers daily self-guided snorkeling from shore, or twice weekly by boat free of charge!
This full-service resort is just right for relaxed fishermen, families and non-fishermen. It has a plantation-style hotel with 30 rooms, apartments and villas all within a short distance of the Atlantic shore. The Stella Maris clubhouse consists of a full dining restaurant, bar/lounge, game room, boutique, patios and garden.
Stella Maris International Airport (MYLS) is a private, non-towered, airport of entry. The paved runway is 4050 long by 90 feet wide plus shoulders.
Stella Maris is remote, quiet, and an excellent location for family and group vacations.
