Pelican Cays Land & Sea Park

 25 Thumbs Up! Give your thumbs up.

This vast 2,100-acre land and sea reserve was established in 1972 and is a sister park to the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park. It lies approximately eight miles north of Cherokee Sound and just south of Marsh Harbour. The park area is comprised of four small cays and the water around them: Channel Rock, Gaulding Cay and the southern portion of Sandy Cay. On the seaward side of Sandy Cay lies the focal point of interest of the Park, Sandy Cay Reef, one of the most popular snorkeling reefs for tourist and an area of great beauty and diversity.

It is home to some of the most unique and beautiful marine life in the world and features an extensive number of beautiful undersea caves, extensive coral reefs, and is noted for its fish, plant and animal life.
