The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park

The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park (ECLSP) has more than 100,000 acres of beaches, mangroves, reefs, and ocean. It was established in the 1950's to protect the unique marine and terrestrial ecosystems. We spent a couple of nights in the park to enjoy the beauty.

Freedom on a park mooring at Warderick Wells

Lots of beautiful hiking trails.

The trail to the famous Boo Boo Hill takes you across this shallow salt creek.

Boo Boo Hill, the highest point on Warderick Wells. Boaters have been leaving plaques with their boat names for decades.

Not far from the hill are blow holes. You can hear them "breathing". On days when the waves on the open ocean are big and the tide is high water will spray from them.

It is an incredible place, one you just need to see for yourself.
