Bahamas Chatter: “New restaurant open at Spanish Wells Yacht Haven” plus 1 more
New restaurant open at Spanish Wells Yacht Haven
Posted: 02 Apr 2016 06:27 AM PDT
The Spanish Wells Yacht Haven restaurant (Wreckers) has just opened. It’s already apparent that they have too much landscaping and not enough parking along the road. Prices are not cheap, but not at Harbor Island rates. Food getting a good review, interesting presentation, some Greek leaning but with other offerings. A Spanish Wells pizza has all sorts of seafood on it. The restaurant is all open, but appears to have plastic curtains for inclement weather. The whole marina is quite attractive. It could be a game-changer for the Spanish Wells/Harbour Island area if it is managed well. (Information provided by a Spanish Wells resident)
Transiting the Devil’s Backbone
Posted: 01 Apr 2016 02:35 PM PDT
We are in Spanish Wells, waiting out the winds to head north to the Abacos. There is a north entrance that goes through the Devil’s backbone, but the guide books warn you to not do that; hire a pilot ($120) to guide you through, or go south around Egg Island, then go north to the Abacos. I’ve been looking at the charts and I’m really tempted to save the 20 miles going around to make our transit to Little Harbour easier. We are on a 36′ Grand Banks trawler with a 4.5 foot draft. Any thoughts from anyone?
