Pipe Creek Sandbar
Piloting a boat through the Exuma cays is treacherous for novice navigators, because the waterways here are a labyrinth of shallow water. But this is exactly why these islands have such extraordinary sandbars: the shifting currents reveal these submerged islands of sand at the same place and time during each tidal cycle. The sandbar in Pipe Creek, off Little Pipe Cay, is spacious, with soft supple sand. Savor it, though; this beach disappears when the tide rises.
