The Exuma Cays are one of the most coveted sailing destinations in the world, due to the beautiful cruising grounds they offer as well as numerous exclusive and private islands, designed with relaxation in mind.
Staniel Cay is perhaps best known as a gathering point for visiting yachts; the Yacht Club is a great lunch spot – order the cracked conch at the grill. Nearby Thunderball Grotto, made famous by James Bond, is an amazing place to snorkel in an intricate, sunlit cave system surrounded by colourful, exotic fish.
Discover iguana-clad shores at the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, where diverse marine life thrives, or activity-seekers can catch some wind in this kitesurfing nirvana. Norman’s Cay, a charming coral atoll, offers wide powdery beaches and glittering turquoise water, while nearby Compass Cay is the area to swim with friendly nurse sharks, an entirely alternative experience awaits at Big Major Cay - swimming with the local pigs is a top attraction.
