The pristine waters, shifting sandbars, and unique marine life make the Exumas the most exotic of the Out Islands. With the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, a 176-square-mile natural reserve where you will find brilliant creatures, and the numerous uninhabited islands, it’s no surprise that the Exumas topped Travel + Leisure’s List of Best Wildlife Spotting in the Bahamas.
- Exumas Pigs
The easy life in this island chain isn’t just for film stars. Some less famous fellows can be spotted frolicking on the beaches and basking in the shallows- the pigs of the Exumas. The phenomenon is a bit of a wild life enigma, as these animals are not indigenous to the Bahamas. But they have happily accepted the sun-soaked beaches as their home, playing in the sand and swimming up to boats.
- Sandy Cay Iguanas
Though its vast and pristine beaches are the source of this island’s beauty, the resident rock iguanas give it its charm. Sandy Cay is home to the blockbuster Hollywood movie, Pirates of the Caribbean and to a species of rare rock iguanas. The Sandy Cay iguanas live a protected life in the sanctuary of their national park, but they do welcome visitors bearing gifts of fruits and vegetables specifically grapes on stick.
