‪Beautiful beach. You can see the turtles almost any time of the day. The only draw back is the hike from the public beach access point.‬

‪The beach has public access points and is a really nice stretch of beach. About 15-20 walk from one end you'll find wooden piers where a colony of sea turtles inhabit. You don't need snorkel gear to enjoy them because they swim all around you. We arrived early, about 10 am, and had the first hour essentially to ourselves and the turtles. After which larger groups of people arrived by land and by sea. It got loud so we went further down the beach and found a quiet area where the turtles still came around. Overall, we got some excellent pictures and enjoyed our time on the beach. Be aware that there are no facilities here.‬

‪A journey to get to the beach from the road, but worth the trip. When we were there the steps leading from the road to the water were being repaired. Hopefully by now the repairs have been completed.‬

‪There are so many beautiful beaches, but here you avoid the wind, you get to swim with sea turtles and it’s still relatively quiet the entire day. In 5 days we chose to go here twice because of the turtles and quiet surroundings. Don’t miss this one!‬

‪We are renting a lovely home on Hoopers Bay. We have paid a good amount of $ to be here. We are constantly asking people coming to the beach to please leave our private property so we can sit on our rented spot above the high water mark. It would be so nice if people arriving on Hoopers Bay would walk down the beach a bit and set up where there are no homes behind them, especially large groups. Please respect the privacy signs and the areas in front of homes on the beach. There is plenty of room for all to enjoy a private area without intruding on renting customers or homeowners spaces and not allowing the peace and serenity they have paid for. Pay attention to signs saying “For guests of the property use only”. I am aware that no one owns the beach but rental customers have Paid for the use of the beach in front of their rental from the high water mark back, and would appreciate some respect. It is a beautiful beach but being overrun.
Please please Do NOT feed the turtles, Do NOT pick them up or harass them. If turtles do not eat their natural food, sea grass, which is plentiful in Hoopers Bay, they will not be able to reproduce and will be gone forever. Of note: turtles can harbour Salmonella which is a danger for humans, especially children.
Please respect the turtles, and the home owners/renters on the beach!
Thank you.‬

‪We have been to many islands around the Caribbean but Hooper's Bay is a special place. We were traveling with 3 kids 11 and under. The bay itself was very calm without many waves. It helps that the beach is very hidden so we never saw more than 5-7 families on the beach when we were there but it is also a large beach so you can really spread out and not have anyone within a hundred feet of you. This would be a fantastic Caribbean beach based simply on the lack of crowd, the calm water and white sand. But the fact that it has the turtles puts it over the top. Easily one of the top 5 beaches our family has enjoyed all over the Caribbean. And these are not normal sea turtles. They are so used to humans that they do not swim away from you. We spent a few hours with the turtles on 2 separate occasions. Anyone who tells you they aren't there just didn't take the time to walk down and find them. They hang between the first and second dock way down the beach. There were at least 10 different turtles that we saw and my kids snorkeled with them swimming along side them and in circles with them for hours. No need for us to even be in the water the whole time because it is shallow and calm. If you have younger children that are not comfortable with snorkeling but want to see turtles, this is the best experience we've ever had. Even better than when we visited the a turtle sanctuary Grand Cayman. Make this beach a must see on your trip to Exuma, you won't regret it.
Now the challenge is finding it and getting there. We read other people's directions regarding finding the path between the condos. However, when you are there and if you are using GPS, it doesn't line up. GPS the Driftwood condos or just look for the Driftwood condos on Queens Highway. There is an Exuma Building Supply billboard across the street from the condo and that is where you will park. The beach access is marked with a sign but the path is literally 3 feet wide so if you don't know it, you can easily drive right by. Once you found it, your are halfway through the challenge. There is a "ramp" of wood to get down but with flip flops and sand on the bottom, you just slide. Walk down the path next to the ramp for better traction. It is still steep but doable. My 6 year old daughter who won't ever take help did fall and so did my mom multiple times. So it can be challenging to get down there if you are not slightly athletic or at least in decent shape. Once you get to the beach, the dock and turtle area is another half mile walk down the beach. But it is beautiful and 100% worth the effort. You won't be disappointed!‬

‪Another amazing beach with the added bonus of the sweet and friendly turtles. To get there, look out for the beach access sign on Queen's Highway and the small parking area across the street from the sign. The path to the beach is by the access sign and goes down some steps and then a steep wood boardwalk along a wall. The boardwalk is super slippy so hang on to the railing or walk on the ground beside the boards.

To see the sea turtles go to the right along the beach and walk all the way down to the docks. Both times we visited we found the turtles swimming around between the first and second dock. We heard that it’s better to visit in the morning or early afternoon to see the turtles.‬

‪Hoopers Bay is an absolute must if you are traveling to the Exumas. Just north of Georgetown, past Smittys, there is a beach access sign between condos. The beach is beyond gorgeous with crystal clear water. To top that off, turtles conjugate near the docks not he right side of the bay. It was an incredible, surreal experience. The turtles were so adorable.‬

‪We love Hoopers Bay and it's our favourite beach in Exuma. Beautiful soft sand, calm sea and great to relax, swim, snorkel or watch the turtles.

To avoid the long walk from the Public Beach Access (steep slope & unfortunately not well maintained) we prefer to stay further along and directly on the beach. We have found that CoralSandsBahamas is ideally located near the centre of the beach and much nearer the turtles.

Can't wait to go there again soon.‬
