Man-O-War Cay

This cay is a boat building and repair centre with New England Loyalist origins, where, until recently, blacks were not allowed to stay overnight. Nearly everyone on the island can trace their family back to Pappy Ben and Mammy Nellie, a young couple who settled there in the 1820s. There are two boatyards now, Edwin’s Boat Yard, which specializes in boat repair and building fibreglass outboard boats, and Albury Brothers Boat Building, which makes smaller, fibreglass runabouts. Albury’s Ferry is based here. It is very pretty, with a good beach on the east side and snorkelling at the north point. The Marina offers full services, T3656008, VHF 16, and a gift shop. There are a couple of small places to eat, but they really cater for the takeaway trade, and a couple of grocery stores. No alcohol is sold on the island, you have to go to Marsh Harbour for that. The CIBC bank is open Thursday only. There are no cars, people use golf carts and scooters. Sundays are graveyard quiet.
