Shroud Cay

Shroud Cay is the northernmost cay in the Exuma Land and Sea Park, an uninhabited cay owned by Exuma Park. This archipelago of cays and rocks surrounds a shallow tidal mangrove salt marsh that creates a unique nursery for conch, lobster, sea turtles, birds, and a myriad of fish.

The landscape of this area changes from year to year due to winds and waves.
