Most Instagrammable Spots in the Exumas

Let’s explore and find the most instagrammable spots in the Exumas.  One of my favorite places in the world is the Exumas, located in the Bahamas, which is pure paradise. With its sapphire-blue water and foot print-free beaches, these remote islands are a tropical paradise and an absolute hidden treasure.

For my trip to the Exumas, I took a charter flight from Nassau International Airport to Staniel Cay Airport (MYES) on Pineapple Airway. I arranged to be picked up by a golf cart and driven to my guide, who would take us by boat to all of our destinations.  In less than an hour, I was in one of the most remote, beautiful places in the world.

Thunderball Grotto

Our first most instagrammable stop was Thunderball Grotto, which is located west of Staniel Cay.  This incredible underwater cave is great for snorkeling, diving, or just relaxing on the boat.  The grotto got its name from the 1965 James Bond film “Thunderball,” which was filmed at this location. Another James Bond movie, “Never Say Never Again,” was also filmed here in 1983.  The grotto is filled with exotic marine life and vibrant coral reefs that’ll make your experience even more memorable and even more beautiful. When snorkeling into the cave, you may even have the chance to see a nurse shark, who is usually at the entrance to the grotto.  

 

 

Swimming With The Pigs

Swimming with the pigs is an experience that not many get to have, but if you have the chance to go to Big Major Cay, it’s a must-have experience. Living up to its nickname, “Pig Beach,” Big Major Cay is an uninhabited island that is home to about 25 pigs and little piglets. When traveling to the island by boat, the pigs will immediately come out of the bushes and greet you by swimming–yes, SWIMMING– over to your boat.Though it sounds out of character, these pigs are completely different than ones you’d see on a farm. The pigs are big and friendly, but they act more like puppies swimming in the water; they even expect treats! The best way to make a new piggy best friend is to feed them apples, and if you do, you may even be able to pick one up for a picture. During my trip to Pig Beach, I was able to pick one up for a photo and he didn’t seem to mind it at all as long as I rewarded him after my photo. But, just like the rest of us, some pigs can get a little greedy.  One year, we arrived by jet-ski and one of the large pigs actually jumped on the jet ski to get some food. It really looked like he was ready to drive the jet-ski away!

Swimming With The Nurse Sharks

When we arrived into Compass Cay, we were fortunate to be the only guests there.  For years, the marina staff has been throwing scraps of fish into the water, which  makes these amazing nurse sharks very friendly. With an average nurse shark being 7.5-9.75 feet in length and weighing over  200-350 pounds, we were nervous to jump in to swim with them at first. After getting over our fears and having the experience, they are completely harmless to humans and 100% friendly. Within minutes of swimming with the sharks, you will feel comfortable with these beautiful creatures and you’ll be able to enjoy your experience.  During my time swimming with the sharks, I floated in the water so I could get that amazing instagrammable shot and they actually swam over my head and body! It was a strange but exhilarating moment.

Relaxing on a Sandbar

The Bahamas, more specifically the Exumas, have some of the most amazing sandbars which are pure paradise.  These sandbars are made up of stretches of pure white sand emerging from the bluest of waters.  We sat on the beach and admired the beautiful shades of blue water, searched for shells, saw many starfish, and, of course, took many photos.

Visit the Iguanas

Our next stop was Allen’s Cay, where we visited the wild rock iguanas.  As we approached by boat and stepped into the sand, the iguanas were approaching us for some yummy vegetable treats.  Upon seeing them, it’s almost hard to believe how many iguanas were on the Cay. Allen’s Cay is one of the few places in the world where you can still find these fearsome-looking, yet gentle, creatures. And, if you’re lucky enough, you might be able to find an iguana who’s willing to strike a few poses for you like they did for me.

Staniel Cay Marina

Our last instagrammable stop in the Exumas before we headed back to Nassau was the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, Bahamas. The yacht club is an amazing location for admiring the beautiful turquoise water and working up an appetite for lunch while doing so. While we sat at the bar, we enjoyed a great conversation with the local bartender about our amazing day while enjoying freshly made lobster sandwiches.
