About Betty & Peter Oxley
Betty and peter oxley moved from england to exuma in 1999 and established the coral gardens b&b guest house which has been rated #1 every year since 2009 by the worlds largest travelers website. We have enjoyed welcoming guests from all parts of the world but recognised that some people wanted to stay directly on the beach.
After some while of searching we found in 2012 the ideal location, only a short distance away and named it sandy palms in view of the numerous palm and coconut trees in the 1.5 acre garden which surrounds the property.
We continue to live and operate coral gardens but are on hand to welcome on arrival and help our sandy palms guests during their stay.
Betty & Peter Oxley purchased this apartment in 2012
Why Betty & Peter Oxley chose Great Exuma
Being directly on what is regarded as the best beach to stay on in exuma is very special, with a quiet but convenient location and a beautiful unspoilt beach to relax or enjoy as you wish.
Getting to georgetown, exuma ( airport code is ggt ) is straightforward with daily direct flights by both american and united with several direct flights a week on delta and air canada. There are several daily flights from nassau on bahamasair or sky bahamas.
We organise the short taxi ride from the airport where you will be greeted by our dedicated driver and either peter or betty will personally welcome you on arrival at sandy palms and show you around and be available to explain local facilities and activities.
What makes this apartment unique
Hoopers bay is the most protected beach on exuma as it is sheltered from the prevailing winds. The 1/2 mile ( 1 kilometer) long ,soft white sandy beach slopes gently into the calm sea. Guests can enjoy swimming,snorkeling, kayaking or finding some of the green turtles to feed, all from the beach in the front of sandy palms whilst we can arrange boat trips directly from the beach for fishing or reef snorkeling .
