Great Harbour Cay is the largest island in The Bahamas' Berry Islands (district archipelago), with population under 500. The Berry Islands group consists of 30 islands plus 100+ small isles / cays. They were first settled in 1836 with a group of freed from the USA slaves. The country's capital city Nassau (New Providence Island) is located approx 40 mi (65 km) southeast. Larger cruise ships to Great Harbour Cay anchor at sea and transport their passengers ashore (to Great Harbour Cay Marina) via the ship's tender boats.
