Rachel’s Bubble Bath, a lagoon on the north end and the island’s loveliest spot. It borders Conch Cut, an “inlet” from Exuma Sound, and the southern boundary of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. The lagoon is fed by water from the Sound breaking over a notch in the lava rocks, which often causes froth to form on the surface, hence, “Bubble Bath.

Explore the vast trail system of the island from North to South and East to West. Venture to the south to the Bat Cave and Low Tide Airport; walk the shoreline of the half-mile crescent beach; take the” jungle walk” to the west and enjoy even more private beaches or, if you are feeling energetic, climb Compass Peek, the highest point of the island at 92 feet affording spectacular views of the Exumas Land and Sea Park.

Or chill out, read a book or join in at the “liers table” down on the dock and talk about the one that got away!

Just a short mile away from Compass Cay in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, overseen by The Bahamas National Trust and The Nature Conservancy. The 176-square-mile park is a sanctuary for marine life. Throughout the park, you can explore the underwater beauty of coral reefs and hiking trails, and explore pristine beaches.
