Beaches by Car
Tropic of Cancer Beach – Visit the famous Tropic of Cancer Beach. In spite of its fame you will never feel crowded on this long white sand beach. Drive across the bridge to Little Exuma, travel through the settlement of Forbes Hill and go through a sharp right curve in the road. Once the road straightens drive a few minutes until you see the first street light on a telephone pole on your left. Take the left turn onto a rough gravel road at the light. Follow it about a 1/4 mile until you reach a T. Go right and drive until you reach the beach access hut and a half mile down the road.
Forbes Hill Beaches – Drive across the bridge into Little Exuma and follow until your reach Forbes Hill. As you drive through the settlement you will see a Beach Access sign on your left. This takes you to a wonderful little cove beach. If you continue down the Queen’s Highway just past the settlement you will come to a sharp right turn in the road. Make a left at that curve onto a dirt road. Follow it a hundred feet until you see a place to park and walk the rest of the way. A most amazing beach that is usually almost empty.
Jolly Hall Beach – Jolly Hall Beach is located a little less than 2 miles NW of Georgetown. You will see a Beach Access sign. Be careful with parking and walking around and across the Queen’s Highway. There are blind curves in both directions.
Hooper’s Beach – Hooper’s Beach is located 3 miles NW of Georgetown. It is very protected so is a great option when the weather and seas are a bit rough. You will see a beach access sign on the ocean side directly across from a dirt road. The path to the beach go along the concrete wall of a house with a brick driveway.
Tar Bay Beach – One of the longest beaches on Exuma, it has surprisingly little access. About 4.1 miles NW of Georgetown you will see a tennis court on the oceanside. Part near the tennis court and walk down to the beach.
Mosstown Beach – About 1/2 mile SE of the airport round-about you will find parking on the oceanside just opposite the Mosstown Road. Be careful not to get stuck in the sand. A wonderful big beach. Stop on your way from the airport just after arrival and get your toes wet and sandy!
Emerald Bay Beach – Located about 4.5 miles NW of the airport. As you pass through the settlement of Farmers Hill you will see a basketball court on your right. Pull into the park area, park you car and walk a short distance to this wonderful beach. Keep in mind that you will be sharing it with Sandal’s Guests.Definitely the most crowded beach on Exuma, also the best people watching!
CocoPlum Beach – An Amazing shallow sandy beach that is great for young children. This beach is hard to find but worth it. Drive the Queen’s Highway NW towards Rolleville and look for the 3-way junction (Rolleville,Curtis and Stewart Manor). Take the first road to the right after the junction. It is a really rough gravel and dirt road that goes down a hill. You will park at the beach by some old shacks.
