I would have liked a little more information of the lives of the family who passed away and lie in the tombs.....but I thought it was interesting overall.

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
