Treasure Cay Beach activities, attractions & nightlife

oh, the sun, the sand and not much to do!Travel to the majestic reef of Abaco with Treasure Divers on a scuba diving or snorkeling excursion through a labyrinth of reefs and formations, to shipwrecks and caverns – dive under or float along the surface and make your water experience unforgettable. Treasure Divers also has a custom boat that can take you island hopping, beaching, shelling and deep-sea fishing. If this doesn't put a smile on your face, rent a center console boat of your own, ranging from 24 foot to 27 ft., from JIC Boat Rentals.

Whether you’re a seasoned golfer or just a beginner, you’re going to fall in love with the game of golf at Treasure Cay Golf Course. We dare you to play 18 holes by surrounding yourself with other lovers of golf. Make some new friends as you tackle the winds, keep your ball out of the duck ponds and keep your head in the game rather than on the unique area that surrounds you.

Make your mark by donating a T-shirt to the huge collection suspended from every corner, ceiling and boathook in Pete’s Pub & Gallery – then enjoy fresh food and cold drinks. While the rum punches pack a punch at Nippers Beach Bar & Grill, Café La Florence has all you’ll need to wake yourself up in the morning, including signature coffee and freshly baked goods.

May and June are the rainiest months although twice as much rain tends to fall in the northern islands than in the southern ones.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
