The island of Staniel Cay is nestled in the magnificent chain of Bahamian Islands called The Exuma Cays (a.k.a. Exumas). Staniel Cay lies approximately 75 miles south of Nassau and 250 miles southeast of Florida. The island itself is less than two square miles in area. A small Bahamian village lies on the western shore, just a short walk south from the Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Although small (the island has a population of less than 90 full-time residents), the island has most of what anyone could need: a church, post office, library, three small retail shops and a marine supply store. The Yacht Club has been an established part of the Staniel Cay community since 1956. Today there are 14 charming bungalows, an 18-slip marina, a 3,000-foot airstrip and a clubhouse with a wonderful restaurant and casual island bar.
