The oool DIY dilemma

I have tried DIY on three different islands now in the Bahamas and have had moderate luck, but by far the best success for me has been Long Island. You can walk off the plane and rent a car (in questionable shape, but no deposit required) for $50 at either Stella Maris or Deadman's Cay, and there are loads and loads of driveable flats on the west side. The east side (ocean) is pretty rough and tumble, but there are some gem spots if you look around. Granted, people are cool all around once you get out of Nassau, but I absolutely loved Long Island and the people there. In my limited experience, Long Island is the best I've found so far. Plenty of decent and inexpensive places to stay too. Andros is absolutely killer but damn near impossible to get around on your own without a boat. Good luck
