This park, covering 13,440 acres, was established in 2002. Its marine environs encompass pristine beaches, sand dunes, mangrove creeks, and sea-grass beds, which are a vital part of the ecosystem between Great and Little Exuma. The mangroves serve as an important nursery habitat for juvenile stocks of fish, crawfish, and conch, gray snappers, yellowtails and groupers.

Also a variety of bird life nests on the cay, including gull-billed and least terns, nighthawks, plovers, oyster-catchers and ospreys.
