Winter Haven Inn

 5 Thumbs Up! Give your thumbs up.

Winter Haven is located in Clarence Town, one of the most scenic towns in The Bahamas. The hotel, restaurant, bar, pool, and hot tub are built right on the beach. The view to the east is all ocean and reef. To the west, you look out over the marina, harbor, and town.

Within minutes, you can be bonefishing in the extensive flats, snorkeling the crystal clear waters, or beach-combing the white sands--all within a short drive.

The people of Long Island are famous for their friendly and helpful ways, and Winter Haven can assist you with guides, rental cars, rental boats, fly fishing guides, and advice on beaches and places to explore.

Additional Services and Amentities Available

Winter Haven's owners have extensive experience outfitting the restaurant with a variety of fresh fare from the sea. In addition to shallow water angling, they can also arrange an offshore fishing.
