The natural beauty of Great Harbour Cay is extraordinary. It has seven miles of oceanfront beaches that include isolated enclaves, caverns, and open expanses. The Beach Club Beach, Dannenberg Beach, Shelling Beach, Shark Creek Beach and the historical Ship Yard Beach are some of the beaches you will find along the seven mile expanse.

Sugar Beach is considered one of the most beautiful places around the Bahamas and the beach, itself, is only the start of it.
