Long Island Lizards Major League Lacrosse MLL
The New York Lizards are a professional lacrosse club based in Long Island, New York, U.S.A. They mostly compete with other opponents in U.S.A’s men’s field lacrosse league alongside other major and minor leagues.
They initially went by the name Long Island Lizards before adopting their new name in 2012. They have three primary club colors; black, green, and white. These colors dominate their club’s logo, lacrosse jerseys, training kits, protective gear, and the rest of the team’s merchandise.
The New York Lizards are among the most notable teams in the sport. However, this has not been so in recent years as the team’s performance has gradually deteriorated. The sudden or gradual poor performance is a widespread phenomenon in any sport. The Lizards continue to work towards regaining their lost glory and bragging rights.
New York Lizard’s advent
The New York Lizard lacrosse team got established in 2001. New York Lizards also have a home stadium designated for playing their home matches like any other team. Their home stadium is known as Shuart Stadium in Hempstead. However, it is a shared facility in their region that gets used for numerous sporting activities.
Reliable sources claim that the Medallion Sports Group owns the team. The owners appointed an individual named Jeffrey Rudnick to chair the governors’ board. With the other members’ aid, the chairman is responsible for appointing competent individuals in critical positions to oversee the team’s welfare.
Since the team’s inception, they have had about four coaches: John Detommaso, Jim Mule, Joe Spallina, and B.J. O’Hara. Among the four, John served as a coach in the least period. He only served for three years but won more titles than the other three coaches ever did.
The current coach, B.J. O’Hara, is assisted by Ted Garber and Mike Gongas, who effectively manage the team.
New York Lizard’s most troublesome opponents
First on the list is the Chesapeake Bayhawks, who always make sure to give the New York Lizard’s a hard time in as many games whenever they clash. The two have gotten involved in several vital games in the past years, including some final matches.
Of these finals, the Chesapeake Bayhawks put up a spirited fight to bag about three major titles against their two. The rivalry continues to go on as the two strive to retain their team’s honor and bragging rights.
There has been growing competitiveness between the New York Lizards and the Boston Cannons in recent years. This undoubtedly got sparked by the signing of Paul Rabil from the Cannons in 2015. The two have been at loggerheads many times, but the New York Lizard’s still managed to retain the bragging rights.
New York Lizard’s recruitments and current players
The Lizards have talent scouts who go around universities or high schools searching for fresh and talented lacrosse players in different states. The lucky players who make the cut get recruited to the junior team and subsequently work their way up to the senior team.
Since the team’s inception, they have drafted several impressive junior lacrosse players, namely, Eric Wedin, who was the first to be drafted in 2001. Others include Matt McMonagle and Rob Pannell from Cornell, Peter McKee, and Luke Duprey from Duke, to mention but a few.
Over the years, the New York Lizards have made several signings to improve their quality of gameplay. Most of these signings are offered or negotiated by opposing teams in the league. Some of the most notable signings include Paul Rabil, Mike Stone, among others.
Currently, the team has twenty-six players in its most recent season’s team. Among them includes the usual starting ten and substitutes. Like it is in any sport, any starting team has a designated captain.
Among the twenty-six, there are three alternating captains: Dylan Molloy, Austin Kaut, and Alex Spring, who play different positions. The players have all gotten drafted from different universities and colleges.
Other New York Lizard players include Sean O’Brien, who plays in the midfield, Connor O’Hara, Ben Randall, Colin Burke, Decker Curran, Andrew Bracy, and Mark Andrejack, among many others.
Sean, Colin, and Curran are midfielders, Connor is an attackman, Randall is a defender, whereas Mark and Andrew are forwards. Each of these players undergoes rigorous training to deliver a worthy performance in a game.
A commonly shared characteristic among these players is the fact almost all of them, if not all, are above the average height, and they also have healthy weights. Hence, it can be deduced that the players are all well-maintained with strict meal plans and consequently fit to perform in a game effectively.
Awards and achievements
The New York Lizards have had significant accomplishments since its inception, and its players have also won several awards and nominations in the past years. The Lizards have bagged three championship titles and an equal number of division titles in the early 2000s.
The three-time championship winner has had its players win prestigious awards such as the Most Valuable Player, which Jay Jalbert first won. Rob Pannell notably won several awards while playing for the Lizards, including Rookie of the Year, the Most Valuable Player, and the yearly award for Offensive Player.
Rob Pannell bagged the Offensive Player of the Year twice, and Drew Adams won Goalkeeper of the Year thrice. Drew bagged the first two of his three awards in two consecutive years.
The New York Lizards have recently had trouble transitioning from the Major Lacrosse League to the recently formed Premier Lacrosse League. Some of the challenges cited include poor performance, which makes it challenging to retain and attract quality players.
The ongoing pandemic saved them from continued match loss as they broke all the wrong records in their 2019-2020 game season. Despite their deteriorating performance, the New York Lizards will bounce back from their recent setbacks, as is expected from their die-hard fans.
The three-time championship title winners will surely regain their long lost glory as they continue to make all the required adjustments. In sports, a bad game or a couple of bad seasons is the norm for any team, be it a top team, an average one, or the perceived underdog in any given league.
Lizards Are LI’s Newest Pro Team
With a logo taken from the label of a soft-drink bottle, and a roster
sprinkled with some of the sport’s biggest names, the Long Island Lizards will
be familiar to fans before they even step on the field for the inaugural season
of Major League Lacrosse this summer.
Bill Bishop, the CEO of SoBe Beverage, heads an ownership group that paid
$1. 6 million to bring professional outdoor lacrosse to Long Island. And with a
team that features Casey Powell, a two-time Player of the Year at Syracuse, and
Subscribe to Sports Now newsletter
the Gait Brothers-Paul and Gary-Bishop’s organization should be the premier
franchise in the six-team startup league.
“We want to be like the Yankees,” said Joe DeSimone, one of Bishop’s
partners. “But we don’t want to be like George Steinbrenner.”
MLL founder Jake Steinfeld, the fitness guru best known for his “Body by
Jake” empire, has spent the past three years preparing for the league’s
inaugual season. He’s lined up television contracts for each region-Madison
Square Garden network will broadcast 12 games featuring the Lizards, New Jersey
Pride and Bridgeport Barrage on Sunday nights-and also signed up deep-pocketed
sponsors like Yahoo! and Anheuser-Busch.
While elite players like Powell can make a pretty decent living with
endorsement deals and playing the sport year-round, the average MLL salary is
$15,000 for a 14-game season. Or as Steinfeld referred to it, “the per diem for
The hyper-charged Steinfeld, who held a news conference yesterday at the
hip Hudson Hotel in midtown Manhattan, sounded much like XFL founder Vince
McMahon at the birth of his league. But there are important differences between
the two ventures.
Aside from a couple of fan-friendly rule changes, which include the
addition of a two-point shot and a 45-second shot clock, Steinfeld isn’t trying
to re-invent the sport. Or cheapen it. The MLL has recruited the nation’s top
talent, and that means the quality of play will be unmatched.
“Americans love hitting, scoring and speed, and this game has all three of
those components,” said the Brooklyn-born Steinfeld, who played lacrosse at
Baldwin High. “The MLL will succeed because we’re fielding the best players in
the world and you can’t say that about another start-up league. That’s the
reason why we’ll not only succeed, but be big winners.”
The Lizards will open their home schedule at Hofstra against the Rochester
Rattlers on June 14, then switch to a converted EAB Park in Central Islip for
the next four games before returning to Hofstra for the final two. Like the
baseball Ducks, who cashed in during their first season with both ticket sales
and merchandising, the Lizards are planning the same type of marketing strategy.
Players will have plenty of interaction with fans, and the Lizard
logo-check out your grocer’s cooler-will be available on just about anything
relating to lacrosse.

Lizards to open season against lacrosse league’s champs
Individual game tickets go on sale Saturday for the New York Lizards’ 2019 season, featuring eight home games at Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium. The home opener will take place May 31 at 7:30 p.m. against the Major League Lacrosse defending champion Denver Outlaws.
“Opening night is exciting but playing one of your biggest rivals adds another layer on top in addition to everything that will be happening,” said Lizards General Manager Joe Spallina. “It’s two of the more storied franchises in the league on opening night and that’s fun.”
As part of the opening night festivities, the inaugural New York Lizards Town Cup will feature the top ranked 5th – 8th grade teams from Nassau and Suffolk County Police Athletic Leagues facing off before the game, giving kids from across Long Island a chance to play on the field in front of their favorite hometown players.
“The PAL in our market does such an incredible job with youth players,” said Lizards Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Rudnick. “We wanted to make this something special for them. We have been working closely with the leaders of the Nassau and Suffolk PAL to create an exciting championship event.”
In addition to the home opener on May 31, the Lizards will play three more home games during the first half of the season on Saturday, June 15 at 7 p. m., Saturday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m., and Thursday, July 11 at Noon.
The league’s championship weekend is scheduled for Oct. 4-6
The New York Lizards were founded in 2001 as one of the league’s original six franchises. Formerly the Long Island Lizards, the team won the Steinfeld Cup in its inaugural season, 2001, as well as in 2003, and 2015. The Lizards are owned by majority owner Medallion Financial Corp, Vice Chairman, Richard Mack, and other investors.
The league, now in its 19th season, comprises six teams: The Atlanta Blaze, Boston Cannons, Chesapeake Bayhawks, Dallas Rattlers, Denver Outlaws, and the Lizards.

Spallina named head coach of MLL’s Long Island Lizards
Jan. 30, 2012
Stony Brook women’s lacrosse head coach Joe Spallina has been named the head coach of the Long Island Lizards men’s lacrosse team, a member of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the franchise announced Monday.
Leading the Lizards will be in addition to his duties as the head coach at Stony Brook, and he will not miss any Seawolves practices or games. The MLL season runs from the end of April to the end of August.
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to be the next head coach of the Long Island Lizards,” Spallina said. ”I have had the chance and experience to learn from Jim Mule the past two years, and I am forever grateful to have worked with one of the most famed coaches in MLL history. I look forward to bringing this franchise to the top of the MLL with a hard working dedicated style of coaching. It is an honor to be coaching in the MLL especially for one of the original franchises, and I am excited to make the most of this outstanding opportunity. I also want to thank my wife and four children for their unwavering support in adding this position of head coach of the Long Island Lizards to my regular duties as the head coach of the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team. “
Spallina previously served as an assistant coach for the Lizards over the last two seasons. In 2010, he helped lead the Lizards to the MLL championship game.
Spallina will take over a Lizards team that has former Seawolves star Timmy Trenkle on the roster and just drafted current Seawolves seniors Kyle Moeller and Robbie Campbell.
Spallina is in his first season at Stony Brook and will have 13 returning letterwinners and 14 newcomers during the 2012 season, including four transfers from Adelphi, which he led to three consecutive NCAA Div. II national championships and had an overall 73-2 record. Spallina and the Seawolves will open the 2012 campaign against Colgate on Feb. 11.

Lacrosse sits in the heart of Long Island.
The athletes playing on the Island are among the best students of the game across all levels of competition. Few showcase it more than the Major League Lacrosse’s New York Lizards.
The Lizards announced their 25-man roster on Tuesday, July 7th, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the MLL. More than half of the team this season is comprised of athletes raised in and/or graduated from Long Island. Axcess Sports breaks down the 13 Lizards representing the Island this season.

A key component of the New York offense is returning with an even bigger mission ahead. It is very likely Molloy will step up as the offense’s main goal scorer and playmaker, following the departure of Rob Pannell. Although Pannell was the second highest point-scorer in the league with 63 last season, Molloy was the second-best for New York with 42.
The attackman is no stranger to the spotlight and thrived in it throughout his career, so far. The Setauket native was the first overall pick in the 2017 MLL Draft by the now-defunct Florida Launch, leading the team with 59 points in 2018.
Molloy built his career on out-muscling and outsmarting opponents for goals, dating back to his time at Brown. He finished the 2015 campaign with a program-record 62 goals and the Ivy League Player of the Year honor. He followed that up by producing the sixth-highest point total in NCAA history with 116 and took home the 2016 Tewaaraton Award.
Molloy made his name as an all-star talent at St. Anthony’s High School, earning a varsity letter in cross country, winter track and lacrosse. He was named the school’s lacrosse team captain as a senior and finished as its MVP.
Brendan Kearns- Wantagh, N.Y. College: Providence
Things are only looking up for the attackman, who will likely receive a bigger role compared to last season. The departure of Pannell and Kevin Crowley could lead towards a breakout season on the attack for Kearns.
Kearns wasted no time making a impact in limited time, last season. He earned 17 points, 13 of those being goals, despite only playing in five contests.
Leading as a newcomer is nothing new for Kearns, who led his freshman Providence classmates with 22 goals in 2016. The Wantagh native attended Chaminade High School won consecutive New York Catholic League Championships.
Justin Reh- Rocky Point, N.Y. College: UAlbany
Another factor determining the Lizards success may be Reh’s offensive progression this year. The attackman was fifth on the team with 15 goals and second with 14 assists last season. His strong sophomore campaign was highlighted by his 29 points scored, trailing Pannell and Molloy.
Reh will almost certainly see more touches which should increase his passing and shot creating across the wing and behind the cage. He excelled as a playmaker at UAlbany by scoring 41 points in 2018, including 22 goals.
The attackman always wanted to play for the Lizards and attended their games as a high schooler. He incorporated what the pros did in his game and found plenty of success. Reh lettered for Rocky Point High School Lacrosse and was the Division-II Rookie of the Year in 2012.
Nick Aponte- West Islip, N.Y. College: Penn State

The four-year pro is looking to follow a good first season with the Lizards. Aponte was among the top five team-leaders with 24 points and 17 goals scored last season. The 12 games played were the most action he saw after only playing five times across two seasons with the Chesapeake Bayhawks.
Aponte was a highly-touted collegiate prospect, ranking among Inside Lacrosse’s Top 30, twice. He was Penn State’s first ever All-Big Ten Selection in 2016 and a two time Tewaaraton Award nominee. The attackman was named an Under Armor All-American at Rocky Point High School.
Nicky Galasso- West Islip, N.Y. College: UNC/Syracuse
Galasso may have found his groove at home after bouncing around the now-defunct Atlanta Blaze and Launch, starting his professional career. The midfielder scored 16 points for New York last year, including 13 goals.
Last season was his most productive since college. Galasso impressed in college early and picked up the both the ACC Freshman of the Year and Jay Gallagher Award at UNC in 2011. He ranked 37th nationally scoring over two goals per contest and was an USILA Second Team All-American playing for Syracuse.
Galasso dominated playing the game at West Islip High School. Galasso used the memory of his mother as motivation to continue, breaking nearly every school record on offense. His single-season records include earning 172 points, scoring 72 goals and recording 11 goals in one game. His 500 total points are a record across all Long Island high schools
Steven Romano- Massapequa, N.Y. College: Hofstra
Romano’s defensively-tailored play style should strengthen the midfield for New York. The midfielder picked up 10 ground balls in 15 appearances last season, which was his first time on an MLL field since 2016.
It was tough ignoring Romano’s defensive presence at Hofstra. The midfielder attacked opposing players to the tune of 110 ground ball pickups and 27 caused turnovers over four years. He also scored four times and dished five assists in 57 games with the Pride.
Mark Ellis- Garden City, N.Y. College: Stony Brook/Hofstra
The short-stick defensive midfielder only appeared a handful of times late last season, but should expect more playing time now. Ellis picked up six ground balls and scored one goal in his limited time on the field.
Ellis spent three seasons in the Stony Brook midfield and played his final year for Hofstra. The Pride’s defensive co-captain placed second with eight caused turnovers in 2019.
Thomas O’Connell- Mineola, N.Y. College: Maryland
The midfielder will enter his rookie year under unusual circumstances, but may produce on the field for New York. O’Connell played 49 games at Maryland and started in his final two. He was also a member of the Puerto Rican National Team in the 2018 Lacrosse World Championship in Israel. The midfielder won a pair of New York Catholic League Championships at Chamanade, alongside Kearns and Jack Carrigan.

Another Chaminade alum will accompany Kearns and O’Connell to the Lizards. However, Carrigan’s strength will be to continue utilizing his 6’3″, 220 pound frame and power against opposing offenses. Carrigan led New York and was second in the league causing 24 turnovers in 2019.
While that may be a career high professionally, the defenseman forced a career high 29 turnovers as a senior at Loyola. Carrigan was a member of the 2013 NSCHSAA State AAA Championship Chaminade team and played club lacrosse for the Long Island Express in Smithtown, N.Y.
Tommy Wright- Garden City, N.Y. College: Penn State
The youngest of the three long-stick midfielders will experience a ‘rookie season’ like no other. It was only four months ago when Wright’s redshirt senior season at Penn State was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, his next game will be at the professional level.
Although he may not get much playing time compared to his more experienced teammates, Wright will provide depth in the midfield. He grabbed 95 groundballs and forced 24 turnovers in 47 collegiate games. Wright was also teammates with Aponte at Penn State.
Wright was one of the best long-stick midfielders on the Island over the last decade. He earned the Long Stick Midfielder Player of the Year-Nassau County award in 2014 and 2015. The long-stick mid also helped lead Garden City to consecutive championship victories.
Mark Andrejack- Jamesport, N.Y. College: Adelphi
New York Lizards faceoff specialist Mark Andrejack in a game against the Denver Outlaws in 2019. Andrejack will likely be the Lizards new main specialist at the X this season. Credit: New York Lizards
Andrejack went from being the youngest faceoff specialist to the only one with MLL experience. Both Greg Puskuldjian and Noah Rak left the Lizards this offseason, leaving Mark as the lone returner. The faceoff specialist went 37-92 at the X, scooping up 17 groundballs in seven games as a rookie.
He had great success as the Adelphi Panthers‘ primary faceoff specialist in his junior season. Andrejack won 68 percent of his battles at the X and his 198 victories were the second most among the Northeast-10 Conference in 2018. The faceoff specialist was named to the NE-10 All-Conference First Team in 2018 and 2019.
Brian Corrigan- East Quogue, N.Y. College: Marist
Corrigan was only on the field for 45 minutes last year, but still showed some shine from the past few seasons. He recorded 11 saves despite surrendering 11 goals in two games played last year.
It was unusual not seeing Corrigan on the field after producing an incredible high school and collegiate résumé. The goalkeeper is seventh all-time in the NCAA with 557 total saves and finished with an .850 save percentage. He was also one of only four goaltenders named to the initial Tewaaraton Watch list in 2018.
There was no one better between the pipes at Westhampton Beach High School than Corrigan. His 476 career saves set a school record while his .710 save percentage and 3.6 goals allowed per game as a junior were the best in Long Island. He was named to the All-County team three times.
Danny Dolan- Garden City, N.Y. College: Maryland
The Garden City resident got the least amount of time on the field for New York last season, playing a measly minute and 48 seconds. Dolan played three seasons in Maryland and started all 17 games as a senior. The team went 12-5 and Dolan made 191 saves and an appearance on the Big Ten All-Tournament team. Dolan was also teammates with O’Connell at Maryland.
Dolan was a member of the Garden City High School 2013 New York State Class B Championship team. He was also a member of the Long Island Outlaws Lacrosse club.
Originally known as the Long Island Lizards, the current-day New York Lizards still carry much of their roots on the field. The Lizards will open their season against the Boston Cannons in Annapolis, M.D. on Saturday, July 18th.

Bahamas is an archipelago of 700 islands located about 90 km from the coast of Florida. Depending on the location, the appearance of the Bahamas also differs: here is the charm of the era of colonialism in historical Nassau on the island.New Providence, and modern Freeport on the island. Great Bahama, and the idyll of Out Azlands. As if strung on a string of beads, the Bahamas stretch out in the Atlantic Ocean, washed by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. Before the discovery of the Bahamas by Columbus in 1492, the Arawak Indian tribes settled there. The original inhabitants of the Bahamas were taken by the Spaniards to work in the mines of South America, where they eked out a miserable existence and soon became extinct. The history of today’s Bahamas begins with adventure lovers who have found on about.Eleuthera a new homeland and freedom of religion. They were followed by the notorious pirates who could not even dream of a better refuge for themselves. Along with the American War of Independence and then the Civil War came the Royalists with their slaves.
Coconut palms, bananas, agave trees, oranges, pineapples grow on the islands. There are tropical and pine forests. The fauna is distinguished by a large number of birds. Also, here you can watch exotic iguanas, pink flamingos, feed sharks, swim with dolphins, and dive on coral reefs.The islands of the archipelago are areas of a vast flooded limestone plateau protruding above sea level. The thickness of the limestone deposits is approx. 4500 m. In the east, the plateau drops abruptly towards the North American basin of the Atlantic Ocean. The archipelago is separated from the Florida Peninsula by the shallow Florida Strait, and from Cuba Island by the Old Bahamas. The waters between the islands are shallow, but the surface of the underwater plateau is cut by deep cracks, to which the fairways are confined.Numerous coral reefs, as well as ferruginous interlayers in limestone, create an unusually colorful picture of the underwater world. The islands are raised relative to the sea level from a few meters to about 60 m. The highest point of the country – Mount Alvernia (63 m) – is located on Cat Island. The relief of the islands is flat. On the shores facing the ocean, a series of marine terraces can be traced. Numerous salt lagoon lakes and mangrove swamps are confined to the western coast of the islands. In some places along the coast there is a strip of sandy beaches.Karst phenomena and landforms are widespread on the islands. Therefore, there are no rivers in the archipelago, but there are many karst lakes. There are very few sources of fresh water. The natural vegetation on the drier eastern islands is xerophytic, with a predominance of cacti and aloe. Most of the islands were originally dominated by rainforests. At present, many of them have been brought down, and stunted shrubs are growing in their place. Where forests have survived (on the islands of Andros, Big and Small Abaco, Big Bahama), valuable broad-leaved trees such as red (mahogany), log and iron trees, as well as Caribbean pine are widespread.In deciduous forests, bougainvillea, jasmine, orchids and other plants with beautiful and delicately scented flowers grow in abundance. On some islands, artificial plantings of casuarinas, mahogany and a number of tropical conifers have been created. The fauna of the Bahamas is poor. There are very few mammals, of which bats are the most numerous. There are many frogs among amphibians, and lizards and snakes among reptiles. In the fauna of the islands, birds are most numerous, including migratory birds from North America (ducks, geese, etc.), which remain for the winter. In the swamps and within the lagoons, there are flamingos (only in the national park on Bolshoi Inagua Island over 50 thousand red flamingos nest), pelicans, spoonbills, herons and other waterfowl. Termites, mosquitoes and other insects are abundant. In the coastal waters, near the reefs, there are many species of fish, including the Atlantic sailboat, barracuda, mackerel, etc. There are sea turtles (on the island of Big Inagua, the egg-laying site of the green turtle), numerous mollusks and sponges.The Exuma Keys National Park is protected by marsh and mangrove landscapes and coral reefs.
The largest islands are New Providence, Grand Bahama, Andros, Eleuthera, and Grand Inagua. New Providence is the main and most visited island in the Bahamas. The famous Cable Beach, 7 kilometers west of downtown Nassau, is home to fashionable hotels, casinos, restaurants, sports facilities and beautiful sandy beaches. Opposite the coast are the North Cay and Long Cay islands, excellent snorkelling spots.At the very end of Cable Beach lies Delport Point Beach, a complex of chic Venetian-style villas, quaint shops and restaurants. The same fashionable tourist area is located on Paradise Island, connected to the capital by a long bridge. Grand Bahama is the northernmost island in the Bahamas archipelago, the second most visited. Tourists are attracted here by snow-white shores, vast forests of Cuban pine trees and rich nature. There are three national parks on the island’s territory, and not far from its shores there is one of the largest systems of underwater caves.
The most popular tourist destination on the island is the city of Freeport. There are many golf courses, tennis courts, dive centers and sport fishing centers in and around the city. This is the funniest and most partying area in the country, with a vibrant nightlife, two casinos and a bunch of shops.
Andros is a wild place covered with vast thickets of palms, mahogany, pine trees and swampy mangrove forests. On the east coast of the island there are only a few centers of civilization, which are shacks surrounded by rusty cars and abandoned refrigerators.Andros is almost never visited by tourists – only extreme divers come here, attracted by the glory of the third longest barrier reef in the world, which stretches along the island.
Big Abaco is the second largest island in the Bahamas and is well known to all sailors in the world. The sailing season here lasts from spring to autumn. The vast coastal shallow waters are teeming with fish. Here you can do any of the existing water sports, fishing, or visit the duty-free shops of the largest city on the island – Marsh Harbor.Eleuthera. This small island is considered an elite vacation spot for the “powerful”. Chic resorts and clubs are interspersed with pristine beaches, and old villages with state-of-the-art sports facilities. Also noteworthy are Harbor Island Reef off the northwestern shores of Elyuthera, the colorful town of Dunmore Town, Pink Sands Beach and many great diving and snorkeling spots.
Long Island is hardly visited by tourists. And in vain – this is the most picturesque island of the Bahamas, with beautiful nature and many places completely untouched by civilization.
At the northern tip of the island, Cape Santa Maria is a long white sandy beach, one of the most beautiful in the Western Hemisphere. The main town of Stella Maris is a small but quite modern settlement, a starting point for diving and fishing expeditions. The Exuma island ridge includes over 360 small islands, and in its southern part there are two rather large islands – Big and Small Exuma, where the entire local civilization is concentrated.This archipelago is a real paradise for yachtsmen, because these places are considered one of the most beautiful in the world: constant ebb and flow, changing the depth of coastal shoals, make the sea unusually beautiful. Diving enthusiasts will also be delighted here.
