One thing about the Bahamas, the variation in the landscape between the eastern and western shores of the Exumas is astounding. Pictured above are views from Great Guana Cay. The first photo is taken overlooking the tranquil shallow waters of the Exuma Bank. This scene is typical of the western shoreline of the islands when the prevailing easterlies are blowing.
Within walking distance, photos two and three are taken of the eastern side of the island - the deep water Exuma Sound side. Rugged sandstone cliffs, often worn by years of wind and water dominate the landscape. The rocky shorelines are no less spectacular than the views of the Banks side but here the spectacular views are due in large part to the on-going battle between land and weather.
