A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire Sandy Palms house between two families. It was perfect with lots of space, clean and well equipped. We were on the beautiful beach everyday and used the kayaks most days. Peter was very helpful in providing suggestions for things to do and places to go. The island, friendly and relaxed people and tremendous weather will all be missed.

For those people who don't need to be entertained to have fun, enjoy doing their own thing and appreciate the peace and quiet of a virtually empty beach this is a place for you. The locals are friendly and helpful. We felt safe, secure and welcome throughout our visit.

My family will definitely be back!

ON THE Beautiful Hooper Bay BEACH !!!
Car: recommended

Besides enjoying the beautiful beach location at Hoopers Bay also take the regular water taxi from Georgetown to Stocking Island and experience the fun at Chat & Chill restaurant with the tame stingrays.

A boat trip to the Exuma Cays leaves from by our house to see the famous swimming pigs, iguanas, and Thunderball Grotto.
