A helicopter has crashed in an upscale Bahamas resort, killing one US citizen and injuring at least three others.

North Abaco parliamentarian Renardo Curry said at least four Americans were on the helicopter when it crashed on Thursday morning (local time) in Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean Club on Great Guana Cay.

Police have not released the identities of the passengers or other details about the crash.

Curry says the helicopter was attempting to land at Baker's Bay when a wind gust sent the aircraft spiraling.

Former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham says one passenger died and three survivors were being treated at a clinic. He said their injuries are apparently not life threatening.

Baker's Bay is a playground for millionaires located about 250 kilometres off Florida's eastern coast.
