About Staniel Cay

There are 365 islands in the Exuma chain, with Staniel Cay in the centre of a chain of small islands stretching 100 miles southeast of Nassau. They are flanked by Exuma Sound to the east with deep water reefs. The cay is less than a mile square and it is the home to about eighty full-time residents. Although Staniel Cay is small, it has the basic needs a tourist might need. It has a church, library, post office, three small retail stores and marine supply store. There are many different beaches to be enjoyed on the island. If you are seeking solitude then the rule is; if someone is already occupying a beach, then just go to the next one.

Staniel Cay is protected by the Bahamas National Trust http://www.bnt.bs/ so it is required for tourist to stop by the main entrance of the island and not go off exploring on their own, unless they have been staying on the island.
