Created in 1958, this 176 square mile stretch of the Exuma Cays was the first land and sea park in the world and is famous for its breathtaking marine environment. It is also the first no-take reserve (all fishing is prohibited) in the wider Caribbean.

Scuba diving and snorkeling are popular at this ecological preserve and wildlife refuge encompassing 176 square miles of pristine waters, land and beaches. Encounter nature first-hand by catching a glimpse of endangered Bahamian iguanas.
