World’s first land and sea National Park, Exuma Cays is one of the marvels of nature. Surrounded by a stretch of Caribbean water and pristine beaches, the area is a preserved natural habitat of various species of flora and fauna. Several cays and islands and water bodies around these come under the national park area where any harm to nature is prohibited. The National Park does not allow fishing to save the aquatic life. People visiting the Exuma Cays like to dive into the water and snorkel around with the fish or feed to endangered Bahamian iguanas. The National Park is home to at least 22 species of lizards, rock iguana, marine turtles. Loggerheads and hawkbills are familiar sights here. You can also catch glimpses of Hutia, a Cuban species of rat, common in the Bahamas.
