What a beautiful island. Nothing here but one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Crystal clear and calm waters with almost unlimited visibility made for a wonderful afternoon of snorkeling. Bring what you need because you won't find it on Conception Island.

We got to go to Conception with our friends on their boat for four days. We are used to beautiful beaches with white sand and turquoise water (if that is possible) but the snorkeling was thrilling, and I have been fortunate to snorkel all through the Bahamas and the Virgin Islands for the past 25 years. First we got to... More

On our way to Great Exuma from San Salvador we stopped at Conception Island. The water and beach here are pristine! It is an uninhabited island with a large crescent size beach with water that looks like a swimming pool. This is a great island to spend the night on your boat. You will need to bring anything you need... More

Conception is a Land and Sea Park and... More

This hard to reach little island in the Bahamas is worth the effort to reach. The vis have been very clear every time i've visited and the coral reefs are in great shape. If you like wall diving this is among the best you will find in the Bahamas.

We visited Conception Island on our second to last day before leaving. After a long sail to get there, we arrived and hit the water. The children snorkeled all day! The reefs were stunning and we saw some of the most diverse and healthy marine life. There was the biggest lobster I had ever seen, a nurse shark, a huge... More
