Fodor's Expert Review Tropic of Cancer Beach
This is the beach most visitors come to the Exumas for, although don't be surprised if you're the only one here at noon on a Saturday. It's right on the Tropic of Cancer; a helpful line marking the spot on the steps leading down to the sand makes a great photo op. The beach is a white-sand crescent in a protected cove, where the water is usually as calm as a pond. A shady wooden cabana makes a comfortable place to admire the beach and water. Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3 were filmed on nearby Sandy Cay. Have lunch at the cast's favorite place, the open-air Santana's in William's Town, a 10-minute drive from the beach. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; swimming; walking.
