The World is your Oyster at
One of the biggest misconceptions about Fowl Cay is that island life may be too quiet for some. A remote piece of paradise surrounded by nothing but miles of clear water and sandy beaches – sounds idyllic, but what is there to do apart from soaking up the rays? Plenty!
Each villa at Fowl Cay comes complete with its own powerboat giving you the freedom to explore paradise at your own pace. Fowl Cay is the perfect hub for daily mini adventures. Make the most of your own personal powerboat to picnic on secluded island beaches; explore coral reefs bursting with marine life, or feed wild nurse sharks and sting rays. Whether you choose to do everything, or nothing at all – you'll be in awe of the entertaining nature of the Exumas and the unpretentious charm of Fowl Cay.
Things to Do on Your Boat
Whether it's Bone Fishing or trawling through the cuts for Snapper and Grouper, fishing in the Exumas is world-renowned.
There are 365 cays and islands in the Exumas – a different one for each day of the week. While staying with us, you could picnic on a different deserted beach every day.
Take your boat to Compass Cay Marina and feed the sharks; enjoy a burger on the dock and play checkers with the locals; or head down to Guana Cay to feed the iguanas.
Nearby Thunderball Cave and Exuma Land and Sea Park are teaming with Sergeant Major, Parrot and Angel Fish. We will direct you to the top spots and supply your snorkeling equipment.
