The Exuma Cays are part of of the Bahamas, consisting of over 365 islands, also called cays. The largest of the cays is Great Exuma, which is 37 miles (60 km) in length and joined to another island, Little Exuma by a small bridge. The islands are a popular spot for yachting, sailing, diving, and coral reef and cave exploring. Many of the unnamed beaches and coves of the islands, including extensive offshore reef areas, are included in the protected Exuma National Land and Sea Park of the Bahamas National Trust.
Some of the islands on which there are permanent residents and resorts include Staniel Cay (home of the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, a fixture in the Exumas), Fowl Cay, Musha Cay and Iguana Cay. Thunderball Grotto, located just a few hundred yards off Staniel Cay, is one location where the James Bond film Thunderball was filmed. Sandy Cay, just a short boat ride from Little Exuma was the location used for filming the Pirates of the Caribbean beach scenes. Compass Cay has a marina and is a yachter’s paradise while Hawksbill Cay is a nearly uninhabited island. Warderick Wells ispart of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, a popular destination for bird-watching and nature trails.
