Carriearl Boutique Hotel

Peaceful  |  Relaxing  |  Romantic

At Carriearl, the sea breeze and the constant lapping of the ocean starts your unwind almost immediately. Located on Great Harbour Cay, the largest of The Berry Islands in The Bahamas, a minute’s stroll down a winding path leads to seven miles of pristine, white sandy beach.

The fine cuisine and friendly English hospitality ensure that your unwind continues. You need not travel far – only one hour from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, or twenty minutes from Nassau, Bahamas. Tranquil and non-touristy, this beautiful island is a quiet treasure. Spoil yourself for that beautiful destination wedding, special anniversary, or just because you deserve it.

Activities

There is always an adventure waiting on Great Harbour Cay. The fishing, both deep water and bone fishing, is considered by many to be the best in the Bahamas. Local guides are ready to provide a perfect day on the water, including World Class fly fishing guide Percy Darville! Diving, spear-fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, bicycling – and of course, jogging on seven miles of beautiful white sand beach! Stingray City, the Blue Hole, and Flo’s Conch Bar are just a boat ride away.

The island has its own pair of manatees (which are often seen in the marina), and a nine-hole golf course. When the tide is out, guests can walk across to Hawk’s Nest Island, which is home to several conch nurseries. Shell collecting, island exploring, swimming in the ocean, or just sitting on the beach watching the beautiful water provides quieter distraction. The sea caves are stunning and make for amazing pictures! Car, golf cart, and private boat rentals are available.
