Grand Cay

The Location of the District of Grand Cay

Grand Cay is one of the districts of the Bahamas, in the Abaco islands.

Grand Cay is a small island or cay situated south of Walker's Cay in the Bahamas Islands. It is a settlement of Abaco, a major island of the Bahamas. After a hurricane's devastation of Walker's Cay, and other matters, Walker's Cay's workers were forced to go back to Grand Cay to seek employment. Previously, Grand Cay was seen as a base or home; but presently it is an island containing the main occupations and housing. Grand Cay is notable for being a tourists' haven, and a peaceful, fishing community.

Its number one attraction is "Rosie's Place". Patrons can still sample the combo of Cracked Conch, Turtle Steak, Lobster Tail and Grilled Grouper. Rosie still provides a small full service marina and air conditioned rooms in addition to his famous eatery. Today on many of the cays people make a living fishing and lobstering.

In terms of Education, Grand Cay hosts the Grand Cay All Age School, which is located under the Grand Bahama District. The school population varies from 100-115.

This was the island of choice of U.S. President Richard Nixon, a friend of Robert Abplanalp, an island resident.
