Though its vast and pristine beaches are the source of this island's beauty (in some directions, the coral white of the sand glistens all the way to the horizon), the resident rock iguanas give it its charm. Although Sandy Cay iguanas live a protected life in the sanctuary of their national park, the island is the site of a territorial war between two Bahamian islands. The Exumas lay claim to the cay as the most southern in its chain, while Long Island insists this iguana sanctuary lies within its domain.
