Acklins DIY

Hey guys new member here.

Headed to Acklins DIY in Nov.From reading old posts I see some of you have been down there.I've been there several times At Greys Pt, and never been below Snug Corner.

I'm wondering how well stocked the local grocery is, and also the availability of petrol? Bahamas air has pretty low weight allowance, 44 lbs so I dont think I'll be able to bring in much, half my bag is filled with bug dope and sun screen.

Also has anyone eaten at Club Rollx. I understand there might be a place to at Pestels.

Appreciate any input..........Thanks CC charlie

Rollex has rooms and lots of fried foods...chicken, conch, fries and thats about it. Vehicles are not available generally unless you rent Felton's house and SUV which most people do and I recommend for diy. You might get a room and small car from Mable at the airport. Gas and food are both easy but expensive at Spring Point. Logistics are the hard part, a flat tire may cost a coupe days of fishing unless you are at Felton's where there is a flat with in walking distance.

Forget Pestell resort--I don't believe it is even open, though I could be wrong.
Grey's Point will serve you dinner--just call ahead to be sure they are available.
Also, Chester's highway Inn in Chesters, north of Grey's Point will serve dinner--again just call ahead to be sure. Excellent food and Arnette and Julius are great hosts.
They may also rent you a pickup truck if available and not being used by their guests. No need to worry about a flat tire at Chester's-they have 3 vehicles and can usually make repairs right there, and they are on an expansive flat--you can see tailers from your window! Plus they have bikes and kayaks just in case.

Grocery stores are not really well stocked, so I always eat out--usually at Chester's or Grey's point. I have heard guys also do well to stay at Feltons which is much further south.
New gas station in Spring Point too.

Have only had beers at club rollex--fun place.

e-mail me if you have any more questions.
Have a great trip!! I'll be there in March--can't wait.

One more thing--don't lose your bahamasair ticket stub for your flight home--they will try and make you buy an new one.

Thanks for the input Bob B and Vince.

I'll be at Feltons in Delectable Bay. 1st time in that area though I've been to Greys Pt several times since 2002.

Planning on bringing in some foods primarily for lunches on the flats. I'll def. get up to Chesters for dinner. Greys Pt might be a little sticky as I cancelled with them to go to Feltons (economics).

I'll be there for two weeks Nov- Dec going in on a Wednesday as the last time I went in on a a Saturday I did'nt get my luggage till the following Tues.

I'll give you guys a report when I get back

Thanks .....Charlie
