Welcome to Little Deadmans Cay

Little Deadmans Cay Island Aerial ShotA private 9 1/2 acre island with just one beachfront home. It is a private cay without resident staff since they all live on the main island (Long Island) within 2 miles away. We thus have complete privacy/seclusion. Little Deadman’s Cay is a historical site.

The first settler was a sailor who shipwrecked and made his way to the cay and built a home there, having married an Indian woman from the main island. The home is built on the site of the original dwelling. The island has a main beach and two small beach coves. In addition, it is within walking distance of an undeveloped peninsula 12 miles long with a continuous beach.

There are three main swimming areas on the private island: beachside, snorkeling side, and on the western end with two Olympic-sized swimming pools made by natural channels. This is a great fishing area. Fly fishing is also very popular in this area as one can wade the flats easily.
