Eva hit it right on the nose about the cold fronts. I was there in late January when a westerly with 30 to 40 mph winds set in for a few days. We were holed up in Compass Cay for three days. No restaurant and only very expensive beer, liquor and snacks for sale at the marina but even still, there are much worse places to be stranded at for 3 days. Tucker the owner of the marina is a great guy and the island is beyond beautiful with a great beach on the north side. Swimming with all the nurse sharks was pretty cool too. Our next stop, Staniel Cay was a regular metropolis compared to Compass Cay. I loved both of those islands.
