7 Bertram’s Cove Namesake at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas

Great Stirrup Cay’s main stretch of sand is called Bertram’s Cove in honor of Captain Allan Bertram. The British Navy captain was commander of the HMS Tweed. When he died in 1834 at the age of 44, his wish was granted to be buried on his beloved island facing this beach. In 1979, NCL placed a marker on his grave near the flagpole.
