Detailed Description: 

The Extraordinary Oasis of The Caribbean

Spectabilis in Latin means respectable, outstanding, admirable, remarkable and worth seeing.  It was also used as the Latin title of the high officers of the late empire.  The island is no less than its name says and is offered only to the discerning buyers who reached the apogee in the society and who are seeking and able to afford the absolute best of the best in the world, while having absolute privacy and unmatched beauty.

Ideal Location: Spectabilis Island is conveniently located in the central-northern part of the Exuma Cays in The Bahamas, it lies some 60 miles (97km) from the capital city of Nassau and 230 miles (370km) from city of Miami, Florida making it easily accessible and convenient via private jet or yacht.  On the west side, the island is naturally protected by beautiful shallow sand banks that create safe natural harbor anchorage for any size vessel.  The eastern side of the island features spectacular powder white sandy beaches and sheltered bays with small surrounding rocks creating quaint coves.  The fact that the central-northern part of the Exumas, where the cay is located is home to about one dozen of the most discerning billionaires, speaks at best about the safety and desirability of the location.

Deep Water Access: What is an island good for if you and your friends can not bring in your Mega Yachts?  As the saying goes, “the difference true men and boys, is the size of their toys”.  Unlike any other cay in the Exuma Islands, Spectabilis Island protected natural deep water access channel allows one to bring deep hull Yachts of just about any length right to the island.

Aviation Access: Due to its size and protected location, Spectabilis Island features unrestricted aviation and yacht access in just about any weather.  The island has a planned heliport, seaplane ramp and ample room for a private airstrip.

Beaches and Sand Dunes: The entire island is surrounded by a dozen of pristine white beaches that are separated by few rocky peninsulas that run into the ocean on each side of the island  providing maximal privacy for each beach.  On the North-west side are Bougainvillea Beach and Seaplane Beach (each close to1,500 feet long).  On the South-west side there is a Private Lagoon beach (about 600 feet long) and Water Skying beach, (about 500 feet long).  On the South-east side there is a handful of little coves, and the famous Horseback Riding Beach approximately 1 mile of untouched powder white sand.

Elevations: Spectabilis Island has numerous rolling hills and ridges that are elevated approximately 30' - 40' above sea level with 360 degree views, making them ideal sites for private residences.

Roads and Infrastructure: The island is accessible by well over ten miles (sixteen kilometers) of private quarry filled roads and pathways.  The island features about ten million dollars in various infrastructure items including half dozen of temporary dwellings, thousand gallon water-tank storage and infrastructure for an independent water production system.
