A must see on your road trip to Little Exuma. Stop by and see all historical site and beaches. You will find that they are marked with sign and have road access to them....roads may not be that well paved I just want to inform you. So if you do have a rental car... (please beware that you do not... More

We visited the tombs as part of the Exuma Historic Island Tour. The site gives you a glimpse into the history of the island and the people who settled here in the 1700 - 1800s.

I really hate seeing the negative reviews of people that don't appreciate things like this. No, there isn't LOTS to see, you can look at the pictures and come to that conclusion. It isn't HARD TO FIND, there are signs pointing the direction at each turn. This was out 5th visit to the island and I was making sure I... More

Not much to see here but interesting to visit. Wear bug spray as its in the bush and you get eaten. Signage gives you a little history

Interesting spot, again it is history of the Great Exuma. It was a little hard to find, but worth seeing.

this is not a spectacular visit, but for those of you who are history buffs, this might get your attention. I did find it fascinating, but am not sure many others would. I only went because I had rented a scooter, and had time to check out.

So far from anywhere near our resort that I felt compelled to make the journey to this tourist must see. Don't go. It's a lousy road that is not straight..."Straight ahead, mon."..Yeah, sure. After a half hour you find yourself in desparate straights...no other hotels, resorts. No water in sight from the narrow 2 lane road. Basically, nothing to see.... More

The tombs are worth seeing (though it's a very short stop) but what I don't understand is this: From the point where one parks to see the tombs, continue down the hill to the end and find a graveyard of the locals. We wondered why the graveyard of the slave overseer is worthy enough to be marked, but not the... More

If you like history then you need to take a trip to the Rolle town Tombs. Hire a driver for the day and ask him for the tour. You will find the tomb of the Rolle's and their infant along with the plaque telling you about how they passed. You might have a hard time trying to find it on... More
