The gated access is just a door that is never locked, but it's the only access to the facility at night (during the day there's a and they have full time security. It's also a pretty good location to stay as there is a grocery store right across the street, in addition to a Starbucks, and most importantly - a Dairy Queen. Anyway - after speaking with many locals in Nassau, it turns out that they rarely have crime against visitors - it's mostly local against local. They mostly subside off of tourism (only second to banking), so we've had good experiences there. As a matter of fact, the only place we had anything stolen between New York and Georgetown was off the docks in Beaufort, NC, where someone took my size 15 flip flops from the finger our boat was tied to. Do you know how hard it was to find replacements???
By the way, the only option I can think of that would be truly "safe" would probably be the Atlantis Marina, but you'll pay MEGABUCKS to keep your boat there.
