Exuma Point Beach, Great Exuma, Bahamas
Blog Post - June 7, 2023
Exuma Point Beach has both great snorkeling and an amazing sandbar to explore.
We saw nurse sharks, starfish, and all sorts of other sea life.
This beach is located on the north end of Great Exuma Island where the Queen's Highway ends.
As you get to the end, you'll see the big sandbar area. If you keep driving it will take you to the beach/old pier area. That's where we went snorkeling.
This is the view of the beach area, the old pier and where we went snorkeling.
We got into the water at the boat ramp and snorkeled around the old pier.
After snorkeling around the pier, we headed the opposite direction along the rocks.
We saw a nurse shark heading the same way.
While we were snorkeling we saw this huge red starfish, lots of other fish, and a crayfish.
After snorkeling, we got into our Jeep and headed over to the sandbar to explore.
As we walked way out on the sandbar the water started to get knee deep. You can just float and relax.
Even though it was overcast, the views of this sandbar were amazing.
As we got into the knee deep water, we saw a nurse shark swimming around. It let us get really close before swimming off.
As the sun started to set, we took in this amazing view.
Overall, we had an amazing time snorkeling and exploring the sandbar at Exuma Point Beach. We would highly recommend visiting 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.
