Blackpoint Settlement on Great Guana Cay, Exumas

 Blackpoint Settlement is on the norther part of Great Guana Cay.

 

We headed down about 8 miles to Blackpoint Settlement. A sweet town. Many folks who live here commute to Staniel Cay and other surrounding islands to work


Very nice protected harbor. We anchored in about 9 feet of soft deep sand. Or 45lb Manson dug right in.

After a couple hours Blackpoint Settlement appears.

Town dock. The mail boat uses the western side(right) and seems to come every Thursday

 

Pretty town.


Rain Dog anchored at Blackpoint Settlement on Great Guana Cay.

 

Big White House is the laundryette with its own dinghy dock.

 

 

Laundry day. The island also has a great grocery store, mainly canned food but a great selection. The WiFi is strong and free throughout the island.

You can also get a nice hot shower here.

 

Doing laundry has never been so fun 🙂

 

Cool coral heads decorate the grounds


We head out to explore the town

Back on the boat, scupper helps me with the laundry. We decided to wash the towels and sheets on land and dry them aboard Rain Dog. I forgot to get a picture of the boat covered in laundry, next time. Suffice to say, we looked even more gypsy then normal 🙂


Misquotes are not too bad but the flys can be a nuisance.

 

Another lovely sunset in paradise.
