Fodor's Expert Review Starfish Reserve

The Exuma Cays Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Just off the mainland of Great Exuma, locals call the water surrounding the first few cays the Starfish Reserve, where tons of giant starfish dot the shallow ocean floor. Though it's not technically a protected area, starfish here are abundant. As long as you don't keep them out of the water for too long, it's okay to pick them up.
