Dear Guests, it is with pleasure that I be amongst the first to extend a very warm welcome to you, to the Galley Bay Resort & Spa. With an abundance of natural beauty, please make yourself at home and discover our glimmering turquoise beach, bird sanctuary where you will find the whistling ducks, yellow breasts among others. Don’t forget our very own Nursery and Herd Garden, where John the Head Gardener take you around every Tuesday for a Garden Tour. A rocking chair is waiting for you to watch the sunset from our deck!
