Which beach is the best in Exuma? I suggest that Pretty Molly Bay is top of the long list.
Pretty Molly Bay is located on the northern shore of Little Exuma, just before Forbes Hill when motoring East. It has long been one of our favorite beaches. Its charm is the fact that it is a curved soft sand pristine beach with rocky outcrops at the sides. So its shape provides protection from the Ocean and the water remains a calm blue color even when the wind is strong.
Years ago there was a plan to build three cottages on land by the bay. Construction started but never finished and over time the half finished cottages deteriorated and building debris littered the approach to the beach.
Well now for the good news ! The ground from the Queens Highway to Pretty Molly Beach has now been cleared. Now there is a designated parking area, and a footpath that leads directly to this picturesque location.
I can guarantee that as you walk down the short path and Pretty Molly Bay’s beach comes into view, it will get a “Wow” and have you reaching for the camera.
Be aware that all beaches in Exuma are open to the public from the Ocean to the high water mark. Private property starts above the high water mark. So explore the many beaches that Exuma has to offer and see if you agree that Pretty Molly Bay is the best.
The beach is just a five minute drive from Harbour View rental property.
