The Middle of Nowhere

Once upon a time, local villagers used Fowl Cay as a place to keep their chickens. That is, until a French couple bought the island in the 1950s as a laid-back family retreat. There's still something of that Swiss Family Robinson feel to the place today, in spite of its evolution into a high-end, all-inclusive resort, reopened after an extensive renovation to its oceanfront villas last year. Sandy paths are lined with conch shells, blood red hibiscus flowers grow wild by the wayside, and hand-painted wooden signs point the way to various landmarks.
