A Blissful Day on the Tropic of Cancer Beach

Updated: Nov 29, 2018



It's hard to match the stunning beauty of the Exuma Islands. This tropical paradise appears to be nearly untouched by mankind, meaning you can easily observe the exotic nature here while feeling as if you're hiding out from the rest of the world. In particular, the secluded Tropic of Cancer Beach in the quiet part of Little Exuma is a highlight for vacationers who want to bask in the sun & listen to the blissful sounds of the waves. With the powder white sand beneath your feet & sparkling turquoise waters sparkling in the distance, you'll swear you've been transported to heaven.

If you're planning a luxury vacation to the Bahamas, here's what your day at the beach could look like:

How to get there Situated right on the outskirts of Williams Town, the Tropic of Cancer Beach is slightly difficult to find but well worth the trip. Since it's off the beaten path, you're bound to get a generous stretch of sand all to yourself. The Caribbean Tourism Association recommended driving five miles past the bridge between Great & Little Exuma. Once you see telephone poles with reflectors on them, you know you're close. Then you should spot a small hut surrounded by benches. If you're still unsure, the name of the beach is carved into the ramp leading the way.

Fun in the sun After laying out your beach towel, it's likely that you'll be content to simply relax & soak in the warm rays. Tiki huts & palm trees provide the perfect amount of shade when you need a respite to read a book or take a nap. When you need to cool off, take a dip in the crystal clear ocean.

However, if you're looking for a little more excitement, The Vancouver Sun suggested kayaking, or snorkeling to observe the diverse & colorful aquatic life. Plus, if you head to the grotto, you'll witness a slice of Hollywood history firsthand: Parts of the James Bond movie "Thunderball" were shot here.

Cuisine fit for celebs When you're getting hungry, refuel at Santana's Grill in Williams Town – which according to Fox news, serves up Johnny Depp's favorite conch fritters. While filming the second & third installment "Pirates of the Caribbean," he often stopped here to nosh on this delectable fried fare – as did many other members of the cast & crew. The open-air eatery has plenty of other food options as well, but seafood is their specialty. While enjoying some fresh lobster, you can sip on a cold tropical cocktail & gaze out at the Atlantic Ocean. Note that Santana's is closed on Sundays & Mondays, according to Bahamas.com.
