    Posted: 24 Jan 2008 at 8:32am

When it comes to beautiful, breath-taking beaches, the Exumas offer some of the most beautiful shores on earth. Exuma beaches boast miles upon miles of pristine, white, sandy shores and the gentle waters lap at your feet in a veritable kaleidoscope of electric blues and sparkling jades. Because of Exuma’s sub-tropical climate, the temperature of the water is always ideal for a dip, a sail, or any other favourite water activity.

Exuma%20BeachesTropic of Cancer Beach
The Tropic of Cancer beach (or Pelican Beach) is located in the eastern region near Williams Town on Little Exuma. Famous for its seclusion and pretty sights, this beach got its name from its geographical location. The Tropic of Cancer, the invisible line that delineates the northern sector of the tropics, runs right through it. It is the longest beach on the island, stretching one and a half miles long. It is superb for walking, swimming, and snorkelling. Kayaks are also available for those adventurous types who wish to do a little exploring on nearby islands. Tiki huts and palm trees dot the shorelines, adding to that distinct tropical feel, which will have you thirsting for mini-umbrella laden beverages and losing yourself in the sultry island atmosphere.

Stocking Island
Stocking Island lies approximately one mile offshore from Great Exuma and is home to some of the best beaches and ocean views in the area. On this island is one of the more active Exuma beaches nicknamed Hamburger Beach or Volleyball Beach and it is not too difficult to figure out how it got its name. This beach is frequented by avid boaters during the cruising season who enjoy dropping anchor there to cook up some tasty, succulent hamburgers and play spirited games of volleyball. It is only a 10-minute boat ride from the docks at George Town. Visitors to this island’s sandy shores can have a relaxing repast at the local Bahamian daytime bar & grill, the Chill and Chat, or grab a quick snack on the go at the P&P Hamburger stand. Also on Stocking Island, is the Silver Palms Beach, where visitors can enjoy snorkelling among the many reefs or hop along to the Turtle Lagoon for some bonefishing and kayaking. Many will visit this particular beach to pursue underwater adventures, exploring Mystery Cave and the Blue Hole (a site once explored by the famed Mr. Jacques Cousteau.) Exuma beaches in this area are hotspots for keen surfers and the shores are rich in interesting and exotic seashells.

Other Exuma Beaches
Located just down the hill from Oceania Properties is a gorgeous secluded three-mile beach. Stroll along the wide sandy beach to the sound of breaking ocean waves. This beach is ideal if you are looking to be alone with the elements.

Coco Plum Beach near Rolleville is another tropical paradise. At low tide, it is possible to walk out into the ocean for miles stuffing your pockets with sand dollars and other ocean riches. Visit the secluded and quiet shores of the North beaches on Staniel Cay to marvel at the dunes and sea oats. The North Beaches also are also exceptional for diving as they have spectacular reefs located just offshore. The beaches of Shroud Cay are quiet, secluded, and abundant with mangroves. Shroud Cay is actually an archipelago or cluster of tiny islands and perfect for intricate kayaking trips. Whether you enjoy beaches bustling with activity or prefer total seclusion, Exuma beaches can offer you serene waters, gorgeous sandbars, vivid Atlantic panoramas and a chance to experience complete tropical bliss.
