I really did not know anything about Staniel Cay, Exumas, when Natajia, co-owner of 3Ns Exuma Vacations and Embrace Resort invited us to experience this spectacular region of the Bahamas.

I purposefully avoided researching too much. In this modern day of social media sharing, surprises have been destroyed by viral trends.

I miss the joy of reading a few paragraphs in a travel guide, seeing some photo prints, or hearing traveler’s tales, and deciding to go and experience the surprise for myself. I wanted to return to that mystery. And I got it. It’s possibly why this trip to the Bahamas – our first time – felt like it had a certain kind of magic.

If it’s good enough for Johnny Depp, it’s good enough for me!

Not quite a pirate, but anyways…

Some of their movies have been filmed in the turquoise waters and snow-white sands of this island chain: James Bond’s Thunderball, Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash, Into the Blue, and more.

As the Exuma Islands are a little harder to get to – and the huge cruise ships don’t come here – you’ll find a more exotic and luxurious experience with little to no crowds.

In fact, we had one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve seen in…
