Best Beach! - Best Location!! - Best Value!!!

Hoopers Bay is regarded as the best beach on the island of Exuma on which to stay & enjoy calm, safe swimming, sunbathing or peaceful relaxing. It is protected from the easterly prevailing winds, which at times can make other beaches uncomfortable for sunbathing or dangerous for swimming - especially for children.

With just a handful of private homes along the 1/2 mile/ 1 Km beach, you will never be disturbed & can even watch turtles sometimes feeding and enjoy exploring the bay with our FREE kayaks

Best Location

Besides being quietly positioned on the beach, the property is only 5 minutes walk from some local shops whilst a choice of restaurants are a short distance towards Georgetown.

Our King bedroom # 3 can be made as a Twin if required.

We are SO glad we found "Coral Sands" on VRBO's website. My husband and I stayed in the upper part of the house (apartment). There's also a lower section you can rent or there's a master section on the other side of the house. Peter met us at the house when we arrived. He arranged a taxi to pick us...

Peter was wonderful with helping us find places to eat/ things to do. The house was very nice, and it was also very convenient to have the van as well.

About the neighbourhood
The Hoopers Bay area on Exuma is mainly residential but with a few local shops which can be easily walked to in 5 minutes from Sandy Palms. The most important benefit for visitors is the beautiful bay which is very private and peaceful. The 1/2 mile long soft sandy beach slopes gently into the calm, safe sea which is protected from the prevailing winds which can make beaches in other parts of the island unsafe at times for swimming,kayaking etc. This is why our Green Turtles love the bay and our guests enjoy watching or swimming, kayaking etc. with them. Additional benefits from the location is that we are only 12 minutes from the airport and 6 minutes from Georgetown, the capital.
Getting around
This listing comes with a FREE Minivan!! A saving of over $900 per week!!
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Georgetown (code GGT): 8.0 km
Ferry: Georgetown (Town Centre): 5.0 km
Flying to Exuma is easy with DIRECT flights from Miami & Charlotte ( on AA ), Fort Lauderdale (on United ) Atlanta ( on Delta ),Toronto (on Air Canada ) as well as the several flights each day from Nassau on Sky Bahamas or Bahamasair. Often a through fare to Exuma is cheaper than buying 2 separate tickets whilst there are often more choices if flying from North America or Canada to fly to Nassau and then get the local flight to the island. We can always give our guests the best advice at the time of booking.
