Cocoplum Beach, Great Exuma, Bahamas
Blog Post - June 9, 2023
Cocoplum Beach is located on the northside of Great Exuma Island.
This beach has really soft sand, crystal clear water, stingrays, and amazing sandbars.
You have to drive a dirt road to get there, but it is totally worth it.
To get there, you will drive north on the Queen's Highway. This highway is paved.
Once you reach the turnoff, you'll turn right heading east and follow the dirt road to the beach.
We used Google Maps to get there.
We went after it had been raining all day and so the dirt road was flooded, but we were driving a 4-wheel drive Jeep, which allowed us to get to the beach.
This is the map showing where to turn and follow the dirt road to the beach.
As you turn off of The Queen's Highway, you will see a blue wall and you'll know you're heading in the right direction.
It had just rained really hard so we drove through a lot of flooding and puddles.
As you pull up to park, you'll see a building on your right.
As we walked out onto Cocoplum Beach, you'll see that the water is crystal clear and the sand is really soft.
From this aerial view, you can see the dirt road we drove down to get to the beach.
We walked south on the beach to the sandbars.
As we walked out onto the sandbar, we could see a stingray swimming up ahead of us. We decided to follow it and see how close we could get.
The views at the sandbar of Cocoplum Beach were breathtaking.
After exploring, we walked back to the beach area where we parked.
Overall, we had a great time at Cocoplum Beach. We would highly recommend visiting this beach on your next trip to Great Exuma Island.

These are the checklist items I recommend:
- Bring reef-safe sunscreen.
- Bring your own snorkeling gear.
- Bring your own snacks and water as you will be in a remote location.
- Have a full tank of gas as you'll be at the north end of Great Exuma away from any local gas stations.
