Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Far from the bustle of the cruiseliners of Nassau and the package tourism of Grand Bahama lie the inconspicuous Exhuma islands who harbour the classic beauty of the Caribbean everybody is looking for, but are not going to find on the larger more populated Islands. Exhuma offers everything to the intrepid traveller up to and including a place to stop and just enjoy the surroundings. No better place to do that than at Sandy Beach. We selected this destination with confidence because unlike any of the other places we selected in the Bahamas, the proprietors of the apartment were very forthcoming, communicative and looking forward to our arrival. The apartment overlooks a pristine bay with a perfect white beach with stark light blue water that is completely unpopulated and bereft of the typical tourism a beach of that quality would attract at any other place in the world. Only billionaires enjoy that kind of quality isolation. Billionaires and those smart enough to book a stay at Sandy...

Management response:

You were so kind to write the lovely Review about your stay at Sandy Palms & we very much enjoyed meeting you in June on your honeymoon. This Review will certainly help other people who may be thinking of visiting the Bahamas. Best wishes & thanks from a sunny & 29* Exuma. Betty & Peter

About the neighbourhood
The Hoopers Bay area on Exuma is mainly residential but with a few local shops which can be easily walked to in 5 minutes from Sandy Palms. The most important benefit for visitors is the beautiful bay which is very private and peaceful. The 1/2 mile long soft sandy beach slopes gently into the calm, safe sea which is protected from the prevailing winds which can make beaches in other parts of the island unsafe at times for swimming,kayaking etc. This is why our Green Turtles love the bay and our guests enjoy watching or swimming with them. Additional benefits from the location is that we are only 12 minutes from the airport and 6 minutes from Georgetown, the capital.
Getting around
A vehicle is useful but not essential as stores are within a 5 minute easy walk away & Taxis are available when booked in advance.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Georgetown ( code GGT ): 8.0 km
Ferry: Georgetown: 4.8 km
Flying to Exuma is easy with DIRECT flights from Miami & Charlotte ( on AA ), Fort Lauderdale (on United ) Atlanta ( on Delta ),Toronto (on Air Canada ) as well as the several flights each day from Nassau on Sky Bahamas or Bahamasair. Often a through fare to Exuma is cheaper than buying 2 separate tickets whilst there are often more choices if flying from North America or Canada to fly to Nassau and then get the local flight to the island. We can always give our guests the best advice at the time of booking.
