Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, The Exumas

Concierge.com's insider take:
This 176-square-mile preserve, most of it underwater, is home to thousands of assorted species of marine life—fish, crustaceans, sponges, you name it. Established in 1958, it was the first marine fishery reserve in the world and is one of the busiest parks in the Bahamas. While scuba diving and snorkeling are popular pastimes here, the real draw is the sheer natural beauty of the park, with its pristine waters and beaches. Most visitors are private yachters who sail by day and make use of the park's mooring balls to bed down in the harbor by night. Accessible by boat only.
