Fodor's Expert Review Tropic of Cancer Beach

Little Exuma Beach Fodor's Choice
Little Exuma, Bahamas, Caribbean

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.
