Samspon Cay goes private

ADVERTISEMENT

The Sampson Cay Club in the Exumas, which closed for renovations Aug. 1, will remain closed to the public. The island and all its amenities, including marina, villas, store and fuel, will be private and for use only by the owner, his family and guests.



“The closing of Sampson leaves a big hole for those who made it a regular port of call and/or those who do not like to anchor out,” said Capt. Craig Jones of the 91-foot Burger M/Y Current Issue.



With Sampson Cay’s closure, the smaller Compass Cay marina is now the only facility in the middle Exumas with all-around protection, according to a story in the Nassau Guardian newspaper. Staniel Cay Yacht Club offers 18 slips but its docks can become uncomfortable in strong westerly and northerly winds, the newspaper reported.

Plans for Leaf Cay, a development project just west of Staniel Cay and led by Capt. Peter Vazquez of M/Y Island Time, include more than 50 protected slips.
