Play James Bond at Thunderball Grotto

September 03, 2018

The Bahamas are for exploring and no matter where you venture, whether on the island or at sea, adventures will always await. One of the most famous places to visit while staying in Exuma is Thunderball Grotto. This iconic rock formation first became famous from the 1965 James Bond movie Thunderball. The grotto sits over the Caribbean Ocean and is an elaborate cave system that is known for its diverse fish and coral reefs. You can find many people fishing, snorkeling, diving and wading right here in the cove. It's right off of Staniel Cay and just a short boat ride away from our resort, making it easy to hire a boat for the day or go on a guided tour to see this incredible grotto. There is something quite majestic about a naturally created fort, not to mention it's a great spot to snap photos of you and your friends reenacting scenes from the iconic James Bond movie. 

Thank You
