Treasure Cay Bahamas - Our Stay

Our condo was everything we wanted and more. The view and beach location was awesome! Once we unpacked our luggage and checked out the condo, it was time to get some lunch! One cool thing about Sanddollar Dreams is that included in the rental rate is the use of the owner's golf cart. Unless you plan to travel outside Treasure Cay extensively, the golf cart will be all you want and need. Our first stop was the Coco Beach Bar & Grill. You can find something for everyone to eat and drink, but for me it was Conch Fritters and a Pina Colada! Even better was to enjoy this right on the beach of Treasure Cay.

After lunch, we stopped across the way at the grocery store. The selection of food was excelent and we had no problem stocking up for our stay. One thing we did learn was if you see something on the shelves you like, buy it immediately. Treasure Cay is an active marina and if a few boats come through for provisions, you may find yourself without until the next delivery. The condo has a full kitchen with all the necesities as well as a BBQ grill so we enjoyed our PB&Js and steaks!

The best and main attraction of Treasure Cay is the beach. In the mornings my daughter and I would take walks along the beach enjoying the stunning views. Most of the time, we just hung out on the beach in front of the condo. Looking around, we felt we had the whole beach to ourselves. Wow, one of the best beaches in the world and barely a soul in sight, true paradise. A few times we ventured down to the south point of Treasure Cay beach. When you go there at low tide, you can wade the sandbar and find sand dollars, starfish, and even some shells. My daughter and I walked out to the little island off the point and found a nice little conch shell in the tide.

The other place we liked to hang out at was the Bahama Beach Club. They have a nice pool with a poolside bar and grill. Our condo owner has an account there, so were were able to enjoy those facilities and just had to pay off our tab before we left. Although we didn't try it, there is another dining option available at the Treasure Cay Resort & Marina in the Spinnaker Restaurant & Lounge.

I did manage to go diving one day. Treasure Divers operate right out of the resort marina. They took us to the Atlantic side of Great Guana Cay for two dives. Even though it was raining that day, I thoroughly enjojed my dives and saw great varieties of fish, coral, shells, and sponges.

We didn't explore outside Treasure Cay on this visit. Our 6 day stay was perfectly relaxing and enjoyable. There is more to do and see on the other cays in the area, but we'll save those adventures for next time!
