January 31, 2019

Are you traveling to the Exumas in 2019? There are so many great things this part of the world has to offer. While you’ll have a jam-packed trip, there are several memorable places your guide can take you to on an Exuma sightseeing tour. From swimming with the pigs at Big Beach and exploring the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, to enjoying Cocoplum Beach, finding fossils and seeing the Angelfish Blue Hole, add any or all of these stops to your itinerary this year. 

Swimming Pigs at Pig Beach

One of the Exumas most popular tourist stops is Pig Beach at the Big Major Cay. While it’s unknown why the pigs are there, more than 20 pigs spend their days basking in the sunshine and enjoying the area’s clear, blue waters. The area is not a place where people live, and you can only get to Pig Beach by boat. Once you arrive, the pigs are always excited to see guests. 

Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park

When you visit the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, you will have more than 170 square miles of marine park to explore. What makes this park unique is its original nature. Known as a no-take reserve, every part of this park is untouched. You can explore nature in its truest form, from wildlife to marine life. Not many places across the globe are like it, making it a must-see destination on your trip. 

Coco Plum Beach

Great Exuma’s Coco Plum Beach is one of the area’s most clean and gorgeous beaches. So many love this beach because of how much room is available to relax, play beach volleyball, sunbathe, and more. You won’t have to worry about crowding to to make the most of your beach day thoroughly. While strolling along the shore, it is likely you will find sand dollars and seashells perfect as a keepsake. 

Fossil Explorations

A great under-the-water adventure is exploring stromatolites in the Exumas. Stromatolites are an ancient form of a reef. By ancient, it is estimated these reefs are more than three billion years old. While you are likely familiar with coral reef, stromatolites are made up of microorganisms. As one of the places that hosts some of the world’s oldest types of fossils, this is truly an experience you will never forget. 

Angelfish Blue Hole

Stocking Island in the Exumas is home to the Angelfish Blue Hole, which is a tunnel or underwater cave that goes deep under the island. With the help of a professional diver, you can explore over 92 feet of blue water. It is quite an optical sight to see with the two shades of blue.
