Beautiful peaceful setting, gorgeous rooms and restaurant, delicious food and warm friendly first class service! Even if passing by boat, just tie up to the buoys and pop in for the best gourmet burger in the Bahamas! A beautiful place to stay, and an absolute MUST lunch & dinner spot for boaters in the Exumas!

I recently returned from an amazing stay on what I believe to be the next big thing in the Exumas. Norman's Cay and MacDuff's has been transformed from an island of dilapidated villas and abandoned runway into a gorgeous boutique resort and airport in the heart of the Exumas. I have traveled the Exumas by small plane many times over... More

Norman’s Cay Beach Club (ex MacDuff's) has changed dramatically from the authentic out island restaurant and bar of yesteryear. Gone are the days of the petrol driven daiquiri mixer, conch everything and possibly the best burgers anywhere. But that’s progress and whilst I was disappointed that another old friend has gone it is in a fantastic location with attentive staff.... More

We were traveling on our boat and took the dingy to Normans. We have been there many times but now the grounds are so much prettier. The rooms are awesome, the staff are super friendly. If you love beautiful scenery, relaxing on your own private beach, fantastic snorkeling this is the place

We arrived in a private charter (noble air charter ) which I rate an A for professionalism. We then proceeded to have a fantastic seafood lunch cooked to perfection. We later enjoyed the beach and the view which was amazing.

Traveled on our trawler down the Exuma chain for several months. Norman's Cay is a beautiful small island, the waters are crystal clear. Stay a few days and go snorkeling or diving on the plane wreck. There are some really nice coral reefs all around the area.We took the dinghy in to shore to eat at the restaurant. We were... More

We have "snuck" in by dingy and had lunch here. What fun. The food is good, but the view is worth the entire visit. Like being on your own private island retreat. Walk the beach, enjoy the time away from time.

Accessible by private plane or boat only, this secluded gem makes you feel like royalty for only $250.00 per night. Norman's Cay, the famed drug runner island featured in the movie "Blow" is located at the top of the Exuma Island chain, just 40 miles from Nassau. Norman's Cay Beach Club is the only place to stay on the island,... More
