About the neighbourhood
The Hoopers Bay area is mainly residential but there are a few local shops for groceries within 5 minutes easy walk from Sandy Palms. The bay is protected from the prevailing winds so the sea is calm for swimming, kayaking or snorkeling when other beaches it is not possible. This is why the Green Turtles like to live in the bay and which our guests enjoy meeting !!

The location of our property is also very convenient as it is less than 15 minutes from the airport and only 6 minutes from Georgetown.
Getting around
A vehicle is useful but not essential & Taxis are available if booked in advance
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Georgetown ( code GGT ): 8.0 km
Ferry: Georgetown: 4.8 km
Book your flight as a Through-Fare from your local airport to Georgetown (GGT) as this will be more economical than separate flight bookings.

There are DIRECT flights from Miami or Charlotte ( on AA ), Fort Lauderdale (on United), Atlanta (on Delta) and Toronto (on Air Canada) as well as from Nassau on Skybahamas and Bahamasair. If travelling from the east coast of North America it is often cheaper to fly to Nassau and then catch the local flight to Georgetown.
