About the neighborhood
Grotto Bay is located in the settlement of Salt Pond, roughly at the center of the island. The property faces west, the calm side of Long Island, where fishing boats and pleasure boats frequently anchor. In just a few minutes by car, guests can also visit beautiful spots on the opposite side, where the surf is more dramatic.

Salt Pond has two of the best grocery stores on the island and is the site of the annual sailing Regatta the first full weekend in June. Guests have a front-row seat to the races and are within walking distance to the Regatta site.

Our calm cove is perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding (both are complimentary). Angers can even kayak out to one of our nearby uninhabited cays and throw out a line to fighting bonefish or even catch something tasty for dinner!...
