Places to See
- Deadman’s Beach. A mile-long beach shaded by palm trees. The water is calm and clear with good swimming and snorkeling right off the beach.
- Sprat Bay. The natural beauty of Sprat Bay will make you want to linger under a coconut palm and enjoy the solitude.
- Honeymoon Beach. You don’t have to be on your honeymoon to appreciate the beauty of this amazing beach. Listen to the waves lap the shoreline, breathe in the salt air, and perhaps have a picnic lunch prepared by your yacht charter chef.
- Key Cay. Snorkel around this small rocky islet.
- White Bay Beach. When you think of a tropical paradise, White Bay Beach is the image that may come to mind. You’ll want to take plenty of pictures to post to social media to show your friends back home.

Things to Do
