Known as one of the most laid back locations in a chain of laid back islands, Great Exuma's beaches follow suit.  There are no so-called “party beaches” here, and you'll rarely see more than a few other people at a time as you spend a day by the shore.  

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You'll discover several beaches to consider on the island. Regardless of whether you enjoy people watching, or you prefer a quieter stretch of sand, you can find a beach that fits your preferences. You can click on the name of each beach for a detailed review of that particular location.

Tropic Of Cancer Beach

Marina Harbour Reef Beach: Following the main road from the bridge on the eastern part of the island as it runs parallel to the coast, the road will make a right turn once beyond the lake. Instead of heading right, get off at the gravel road.

A second place to consider is Coco Plum Beach. On the north end of Great Exuma is Coco Plum Beach, a spot that has become renowned for its shelling and the wonderful sand dollars you can find here, especially during low tide. After you finish searching for shells, find you way under the shade provided by one of the many palm trees dotting the coast.

Hamburger Beach: In a little cay on Lee Stocking Island is a beach named Hamburger Beach. While no one can be sure exactly why it was named Hamburger beach, many guess it is for the burger stand nearby with some of the best burgers on the island.

Take a look at this table to learn more about beaches that can be found on the island.
