About Fowl Cay Resort
Sitting at the center of the beautiful Exuma chain made up of little, scattered islands, deserted beaches and sandbars is Fowl Cay Resort. A vacation on Fowl Cay is truly like no other… and there are barely words to describe it–other than this is a getaway you need to experience for yourself. The best way to describe Fowl Cay Resort is that it is a casual vacation experience that combines the freedom of renting your very own island villa (or the entire island) with all the quality amenities of a full-service resort.
Each villa comes with a fully equipped and stocked kitchen where you will wake up each morning on your own schedule and make your own breakfast. Then for lunch have our chef pack you a picnic lunch to take to a deserted beach in your own boat (also included with your villa). After you spend your day exploring the central Exumas, come back to Fowl Cay and shower in your luxurious villa and head up to the Hill House for cocktail hour and a gourmet meal with the other guests on the island and enjoy great food and conversation. It’s laid back luxury in the natural beauty of the islands that makes Fowl Cay so special and why a vacation with us will redefine your idea of relaxing and getting away from it all.
Thunderball Grotto, located off the nearby island of Staniel Cay, is considered one of the best snorkeling spots in the Bahamas. At slack low tide, guests can swim into this underwater cave and view a variety of tropical fish, corals, and sponges. Scenes from the James Bond movie Thunderball and Ron Howard’s Splash were filmed here.

Fowl Cay has three of its own gorgeous beaches. The North Beach provides a peaceful location to sink your beach chair in the sand. The South Beach is the perfect spot to enjoy some of the on-island activities anything from a game of Bocce to a sail in one of our Zuma boats to paddling in one of our Kayaks for a workout or just spend all day lazing under the tiki huts enjoying the view. In addition to our beaches the Exumas are filled with deserted islands with nothing but white sand beaches to explore. And with your own boat you can choose a different one everyday to picnic on.
