Children’s Bay Cay
11 March 2019 | Children’s Bay Cay, Exumas
We tiptoed back out of the Barraterre anchorage on a rising tide. We were about an hour before high tide leaving and going through the skinny or most shallow waters and sure enough we felt one small bump but other than that we did great. Off to another anchorage before heading north on Monday.
Greg had eye two anchorages for the day and as we approached the first one off of Rat Cay, we could tell the surge was a bit more than we wanted so we turned around and headed to the second one.
The second is called Children’s Bay Cay and was once owned by Jessica Tandy. It is still a private island but the view is spectacular and the beaches are breathtaking. It seems that the Bahamas government has purchased this land back to build a resort and on the cay adjacent to it will house a golf course for this resort. It has a huge Bay which shallows out a bit but just as you come in there is a lovely spot with enough room to drop anchor in 12 feet off water.
In the quiet of the day we have seen a few rays and turtles come along as well as an osprey as they made their presence known. We have seen one person from the island out doing her “walking”, but we think she is one of the caretakers of the area as the resort is not completed. In my research it sounds as if it will be like Emerald Bay Marina and the Sandals resort on Great Exuma Island.
Well we have found our favorite anchorage except for the fact the beaches are private, we find sitting here and just enjoying the peaceful surroundings is enough for us.
