About Lyford Cay
Lyford Cay is a private gated community located on the western end of New Providence Island, Bahamas and five minutes from the Lynden Pindling International Airport. Lyford Cay is considered one of the world’s wealthiest and most exclusive communities and is home to the Ford Family, Peter Nygard, Actor Sir Sean Connery and countless other high net worth individuals.
The Lyford Cay Club was built during the 1950’s 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. The Lyford Cay Community is very diverse with citizens from Britain, France, Switzerland, Cuba, Ireland, the United States, Canada, and Greece.
Residents enjoy a par-72 golf course, twelve tennis courts, a full-service marina, dining facilities, a post office, a private international school, and a mile-long private beach.
