Higgins Landing, Stocking Island 

Stocking Island, The Exumas

Ever dream of ditching your life to run a tiny resort on a deserted island? Meet David and Carol Higgins, a quirky, energetic couple who did just that. Opened in 1992, their eco-friendly charmer is on Stocking Island, a ten-minute boat ride from Great Exuma. There are five basic but comfortable cottages—each with a kitchenette and a made-for-the-sunset deck—sandwiched between a quiet lagoon and a tiny private beach. Throughout the island, the gardens have been meticulously cultivated and labeled (see if you can spot all five of the wild orchid species). To tread lightly among all this beauty, water is recycled, solar panels provide the energy, and all waste is composted. During the day, you can sail, snorkel, kayak, or hike; at night, Carol whips up four-course feasts that might start with lobster bruschetta and end with peanut butter chiffon pie. Those who love Higgins Landing really love it and come back frequently; be prepared to make reservations far in advance.—Leigh Newman
