Sand banks that turn gold at low tide lie off the northern tip of Staniard Creek, a small island settlement 9 mi north of Fresh Creek, accessed by a bridge off the main highway. Coconut palms and casuarinas shade the ocean-side beaches, and offshore breezes are pleasantly cooling. Kamalame Cove and its nearby private cay are at the northern end of the settlement. Three creeks snake into the mainland, forming extensive mangrove-lined back bays and flats. The surrounding areas are good for wading and bonefishing.
