Big Fish Cay, Northern Abaco

Big Fish Cay is a 55-acre private island located in northern Abaco just 130 miles east of West Palm Beach, Fla., and 35 miles from Treasure Cay International Airport.

Originally purchased for development into an eco-resort, Big Fish Cay features three apartment units including two duplex penthouse apartments; a two-bedroom Colonial-style sea front cottage; The Beach House; a multi-purpose building; a generator house containing a 35kw generator; a water desalination plant; a commercial grade 120-foot “T” dock with stainless steel hardware and fittings; and, underground water and power infrastructure complete with internet and phone. All buildings feature hurricane impact windows and doors.

This first phase of development (building structures and exteriors) has been undertaken following several years of diligent work by the existing owners in obtaining the necessary government approvals, including duty exemptions on construction materials and real property tax exemptions given pursuant to the Hotels Encouragement Act Agreement. With only interiors remaining to be completed, the island is primed for completion as a boutique resort easily accessed from within The Bahamas or the Southeastern U.S.

Additional features of this footprint-free tropical escape include a naturally protected cove with 400-plus feet of sandy beachfront for sheltered mooring. Investments approval also exists for greater expansion to allow up to 24 hotel keys and 35 villas with related amenities (ie: restaurant, island shop and water sports). Expansion of a marina & docks could be applied for by an owner seeking to expand the existing dockage and boater’s facilities.
