There are only a few historical references to Highbourne Cay. However, supported by documents, ruins and a shipwreck, it is certain that Highbourne Cay has had inhabitants and visitors for hundreds of years. The Highbourne shipwreck is still considered one of the oldest, significant wrecks in The Bahamas. Ships of Discovery writes: “For a shipwreck in the Caribbean, the Highborn Cay Wreck contained substantial wood remains. The anchor from this 16th Century wreck is visible today, underwater at the Highbourne Cay dinghy dock. One can only assume that pirates loved the Exuma Cays. Highbourne Cay is located at the northern end of the Exuma Chain.
Highbourne Cay is known worldwide as the gateway to the ultimate ephemeral islands – The Exuma Cays. Uniquely, the privately-owned island welcomes yachtsmen and guests to its first-class marina and luxury suites. Due to their tremendous popularity, reservations for both are strongly recommended.
Only 35 miles southeast of New Providence, Highbourne hosts stop-in visitors on a daily basis who purchase fuel, water, and ice, as well as shop for groceries and basic supplies at the Highbourne Store. Please call in on Channel 71 and we will be happy to welcome you at the Dinghy Dock.
Highbourne’s eight beaches – deserted pieces of paradise, all within walking distance of the Marina – are among the best-kept secrets in The Bahamas.
We look forward to welcoming you to Highbourne Cay!
