High Cay was given its name precisely for the reason that it has High Elevations up to 60 feet above sea level. The Ocean side has beautiful white Cliffs that were so high they were the first sighting of land in the New World by Christopher Columbus!
With the occurrence of Hurricane Dorian’s 2019 storm damage in Abaco and Grand Bahama, what was revealed is that elevation is the most important factor in determining how much damage a property would sustain, which makes High Cay one of the best islands in the Bahamas for long term protection of any homes, cottages and infrastructure that you might create on the island.
High Cay is a peaceful and secluded private island located just off the southeast coast of San Salvador, and is surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters forming a wonderful protected area between the beaches of San Salvador and High Cay - an ideal playground for water-sports including kite-boarding, sailing or jet skiing.
High Cay boasts three beautiful beaches and is one of a few private islands in The Bahamas that has both high elevations and wonderful beaches. There is also a small pond on the island that, with permission, could be opened to the sea to create a private marina perfect for easy access to the island and protection for your sea craft.
The island would be ideally suited for the creation of a wonderful showpiece estate home, set high on the bluff with 360-degree views, pathways to the beaches and your marina or a dock that could be built in the protected lee of the island. High Cay is the perfect place where a Richard Branson-type entrepreneur could create their perfect private island paradise.
Transportation to High Cay is via the San Salvador International Airport that has a runway capable of landing transatlantic Jets. Indeed, there is a regular flight from France that services the Club Med on San Sal.
If you are in the market for a private island, this one should be given every consideration as it is a ‘one of a kind’ and one of the most beautiful islands in The Bahamas.
Arrangements to see the island can be made at any time.
