Lyford Cay Details
Lyford Cay is a private gated community located on the western tip of New Providence Island, Bahamas. Considered one of the world's wealthiest and most exclusive neighborhoods, the Lyford Cay Club was built during the latter part of the 1950s by prominent Canadian businessman Edward Plunkett Taylor, who bought the land in 1954 from Bahamian developer Sir Harold Christie.
In December of 1962, U.S. President John F. Kennedy stayed at E. P. Taylor's home in Lyford Cay while he held talks with British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.
Club members, most of whom hail from Britain, France, Switzerland, Cuba, Ireland, the United States, Canada, and Greece, enjoy a world-class par-72 golf course, twelve tennis courts, a full-service marina, first-rate dining facilities, a post office, a private international school, and a mile-long private beach.
