The development of a $250 million cruise port and resort in south Long Island and other spin-off businesses could be “just what the doctor ordered” for the island’s ailing economy it was noted yesterday, with developers breaking ground on the much-touted project. 

Azul Destinations and Calypso Cove Destinations have committed to building Calypso Cove, a luxury resort and cruise port on Long Island. The $250 million development will include a port area, a 200-room hotel, an 18-hole golf course, a casino, a waterpark, and marina facilities for mega-yachts.

Tourism, Aviation, and Investment Minister Chester Cooper touted the groundbreaking as a “great day” for Long Island, noting that the development marks roughly $1 billion in cruise infrastructure investment in The Bahamas over the last two years and $6 billion worth of investment approved by the Davis administration in the last year.
