Compass Cay | Places to See and Things to Do

  • Thunderball Grotto. An incredible underwater cave that was made famous in two James Bond movies. Good for snorkeling as well as diving.
  • Pig Beach. On nearby Big Major Cay, spend the afternoon with the local porcine residents.
  • Swim with the sharks. This is one of the top attractions in central Exumas.
  • Explore the thirteen beaches. Your footsteps may be the only ones in the sand.
  • Visit the nearby sand bar.
  • Hike to Compass Peak.
  • Jump in the foamy water known as Rachel’s Bubble Bath. Seawater crashes over nearby rocks at high tide, creating bubbles similar to a bubble bath. Since this area is rocky, you will want to wear water shoes to protect your feet.
