Found 6.9 miles (11.1 km) south of Salt Cay, the uninhabited and scenic Big Sand Cay offers beautiful beaches, hard sand dunes, limestone cliffs and waving sea oat bluffs. An abandoned light tower and some old wells can be found on some of the higher ground on Big Sand Cay. Although about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long, the cay is a thin strip and there’s really not a huge amount of solid ground.
