Shark Creek

Wildlife Viewing Area
Bahamas Ministry of Tourism

Shark Creek, located at the southernmost point of the island, is a mangrove creek that separates Great Harbour Cay from Haines Cay. Locals also refer to it as “Shell Beach,” because it has crystal clear water, with beautiful sand and lots of seashells.

You will be kept occupied by the variety of sea life to be found in the shallows, and it is also a popular shark viewing spot. When you look down into the crystal clear water, you may see spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and maybe even a baby shark. A great hammerhead, over 20-ft long, was reputedly caught in 1992 off the coast near Ag point and tagged; however, it has not been seen since then.

Accessibility Notes

Persons with mobility impairments or in wheelchairs will have to be careful moving around on the sandy terrain.
