Searching For Solitude

Searching For Solitude


Great Exuma and its dotted stretch of Cays, speckled about the turquoise waters, is just an hour flight from Miami and the favourite escape of savvy tropical travelers. Its pristine beaches, Technicolor blue waters, and extraordinary natural reserves are close in reach to Emerald Bay, where Grand Isle Resort & Spa becomes your gateway to exploring this Island paradise.

If you love the water and adventure, or just crave a quiet stretch of sunny beach, there is no other place quite like it. Exuma is home to two extensive national parks. The Exuma Cays Land and Sea National Park is an ecological preserve and wildlife refuge. As well as, the Moriah Harbour Cay National Park which is home to a variety of bird life and its mangroves that help protect marine life.

Whether you are searching for solitude, sand dollars or a sunny spot for sunbathing, Exuma has dozens of beaches just waiting to be discovered. Start by exploring Emerald Bay Beach, which offers one mile of shimmering white sand just steps from your villa. The sparkling emerald green waters inspired its name, while the sensational views will inspire you. Snorkel the colorful reef right off our beach or just sit back and enjoy the spectacular views in the comfort of your beach chair.

Pelican Beach, otherwise known as Tropic of Cancer Beach is a USA Today Reader’s Choice Award winner in the Best Caribbean Beach category. The longest beach in Exuma and just outside of Williams Town, it’s off the beaten path but worth the effort. In addition to snorkelling and sunbathing, plan on a selfie at the Tropic of Cancer latitude marker.

At Three Sisters Beach, the lore of the Three Sisters Rock says a glimpse of these formations from this memorable beach brings good luck and romance. They’re beautiful at sunset too. The legendary rocks are also a habitat for colorful marine life making this white-sand beach an ideal snorkeling spot just 12 miles north of George Town in Mount Thompson.

Bring a picnic to Coco Plum Beach and enjoy one of the Island’s best beach bars just a short drive from Grand Isle Resort & Spa.  Play on the seemingly endless expanse of soft white beach or sway the day away as you laze around on swings that spring out of the water. Arrive on this long powder-soft beach before low tide and watch as the water disappears and gives way to even more white sand that goes on and on.

The magical views and mystical lore of the Island is what brought so many here in the past, and continues to bring new explorers day after day.
