Shroud Cay is the northernmost cay in the Exuma Land and Sea Park. It is an uninhabited cay owned by Exuma Park. This archipelago of cays and rocks surround a shallow tidal mangrove salt marsh that creates a unique nursery for conch, lobster, sea turtles, birds, and a myriad of fish.
The weather is excellent on Shroud Cay year-round. It is warm to hot in the summer and mild in the winter. Occasional rain showers are common.
Shroud Cay: Things to see and do
- Explore Camp Driftwood Beach and take a hike to the highest point of the cay for fantastic views. The camp was built in the 1960s by Ernest Scholtes.
- Kayak. Shroud Cay has channels of mangroves that you can spend the afternoon kayaking through at high tide. Similarly, you can SUP on the calm waters.
- Hike. Make your way to the highest vantage point for panoramic views.
- Dive. The Wax Cut Drift Dive boasts stunning coral formations.
- Jump in the washing machine. This unique area of zipping currents run around a little beach peninsula. If you jump in the current on one side of the point, it will wash you around to the other side, thus earning its name “the washing machine”
- Explore the interesting rock formations. Be sure to wear shoes as the rocks can be very sharp.
There are no marinas on Shroud Cay. Anchor off shore and take your dinghy to land.
