Farcliff is ideally located mid-island: Historic Dunmoretown is just a five-minute walk away and offers shops and art galleries, colorful Loyalist cottages, and bayside straw markets.

Local boatmen stand ready to take you water skiing, bottom or bone fishing, or to whisk you away to a deserted island for a picnic. Spectacular diving sites abound. With just a little planning, you can deep-sea fish, explore the caves on nearby Eleuthera, or buzz over to Nassau on the Fast Ferry. Spanish Wells, a unique fishing village on Eleuthera, is known for its handmade quilts and world-class lobster trade. Stop for a picnic en route at secluded Half Moon Beach.


The ocean is irresistible. Swim in its gin-clear water, surf cast for Pompano, snorkel Pond Rock (just yards away), or snooze over a beach book. Rent a sailboat or ocean kayak, or start a beach volleyball game. A dawn jog to The Narrows is four miles round trip up the beach (or head past Pond Rock to South Bar if two miles is more your speed).


Nightlife begins late and thumps with rhythm until the wee hours. Local Caribbean bands alternate with karaoke and popular DJ sessions in bars and clubs. Or try a star-lit beach walk... when the moon is full, you won't need a flashlight!
