Long Island has 80-mile, uninterrupted coastlines that are distinct to the region’s geography. Its beaches have powder-fine white sand and spectacular sea cliffs that rise along the northern tip of the island. Fertile lands in the interior produce peas, corn, bananas, mangoes, avocadoes, and pineapples. The waters of Long Island are particularly rich in tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, mackerel, red snapper, and grouper.
The main settlements of Long Island are Clarence Town, Deadman’s Cay, Mangrove Bush, Hamilton’s, Buckley’s, Scrub Hill, Simms, Stella Maris, and Salt Pond. The latter is the site of the annual Long Island Regatta.
A famous attraction in Long Island is the 650-foot-deep Dean’s Blue Hole, the world’s deepest blue hole.
Long Island has been experiencing a mini-boom in terms of property development, foremost of which is a multi-million dollar resort. There have also been utility upgrades, including electricity, running potable water, telephone and cellphone services, and DSL internet services.
