If the Exumas are
a necklace of sparkling jewels, then Staniel Cay is the diamond
pendant. There are 365 islands in the Exuma chain (one for each
day of the year), with Staniel Cay in the center. The chain of
islands stretches for 100 miles southeast of Nassau, flanked by
Exuma Sound to the east providing deep water reefs and offshore
fishing, and the shallow banks to the west with sea gardens, anchorages,
shallow reefs and passages between the islands. There are beaches
everywhere...if you find someone enjoying their privacy, go to
the next one! The ocean beach at Staniel Cay stretches almost
the entire length of the island, with reefs just offshore for
Staniel is known for its hospitality and Thunderball
Grotto, one of the most outstanding snorkeling attractions in
all of the Bahamas. While this hollowed out rock has been the
location for the James Bond movies Thunderball and Never
Say Never Again and also Splash, it lures snorkelers
to enjoy a natural fishbowl...swim in at slack low tide (when
the current takes about an hour break from its normal fast run),
and enjoy many varieties of colorful fish, corals, sponges and
other sea life. Weave through the grotto's many entrances and
passageways, escape to the outside through its holes. Gaze skyward
when inside the amphitheater to see light streaming through the
roof where rain has eroded natural skylights. Look but don't touch...Thunderball
and the adjacent two islands are protected by the Bahamas National
