My personal favourite island in the Bahamas

Expert Review Pic I had the pleasure of staying a few nights at Little Whale Cay in the Bahamas. We took a tiny private plane with just enough seats for the pilot and the 3 of us from Exceptional Villas. We had the most amazing views of the Bahamas islands from the air. As we touched down in Little Whale Cay we were greeted by the on island staff with a rum punch and cold towel waiting for us. It is a stunning island and the staff were second to none. Shannon took care of every aspect of our stay and she makes the best Seafood Gratin ever!! The main pool area was one of my favorite parts of the island. It is good to note that the island rate includes all of your food, beverages, including champagne; use of all the island facilities and the island boats, including boat fuel. The views and location were just so breath-taking - it really is the ultimate private island experience.
