The Exumas Land and Sea Park is one of our favourite places in the Bahamas.  Accessible only by boat, and without any habitation, it is unlikely that you have to share a beach or trail with anyone else, even at this time of year.
For this visit we have chosen to spend some time at Hawksbill Cay.  It doesn’t have any blue grottos or swimming pigs, just clear blue water and golden sand beaches.  (The tourist centre map shows a “Pirate Cave”, but that was not worth a picture.)
There are coral heads dotted along the coast which make good snorkel sites

You charter a superyacht to get away from the riff-raff and then someone parks right next to you and hangs out their laundry.
