Welcome to Big Darby Island, a rare and stunning crown jewel of the Exuma Cays.
A host to the most incredible crystal clear turquoise water, and untouched natural unimaginable beauty. It’s a pristine and serene wonder of the world.
The island must be seen to appreciate what an irreplicable piece of paradise it truly is. You will undoubtedly be amazed and in complete awe of this tropical Eden.
Big Darby features over 21,650 feet of linear beachfront (14 beaches), elevations up to 90 feet high (very rare), a naturally protected deep water harbour basin, almost 2 miles of pathways, and a total of 554 acres overall.
Being so untouched it offers some of the most sought-after wildlife activities like Scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, birdwatching, site seeing, and nature walks.
There is also a great history about an Englishman named Sir Baxter who built a castle there in 1938. He was a British hotelier and rumoured Nazi sympathiser who was gifted the island by King George upon his knighthood, and it served as a lucrative plantation for him. The castle (7000 square feet) is in disrepair but could easily be rebuilt/repurposed into a home, clubhouse, or villa.
The Exuma cays are known for their affluent visitors and owners alike. Celebrities and titans of industry have long recognized how valuable these private islands are. Bernard Arnault, Aga Khan, Nicolas Cage, David Copperfield, Ali Daei, Johnny Depp, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Ali Karimi, Eddie Murphy, Eddie Irvine, Tyler Perry and Jena Sims to name a few.
The potential for a private family compound, hotel/resort, and private enclave, are endless. Just be sure to leave as much of the natural beauty as possible, as this is what makes the Exuma Cays so desirable.
There is a proposed development survey plan (upon request) and the possibility to construct a small airport and runway, but it will require the right buyer and plan for approval.
Big Darby is approximately 14 miles from Great Exuma, 95 miles from Nassau, and about 250 miles from Miami Florida.
The term “once in a lifetime opportunity” is often so cliché but in this case, it's a gross understatement.
