With the breeze of the tip of the Trade Winds blowing continually throughout the summer, Wax Cay boasts a warm, agreeable climate year round. Between September and May temperatures average 21-24°C (70-75°F), with the rest of the year temperatures between 27°C and 29°C (80-85°F). Nighttime temperatures are generally 5-7° cooler and ocean surface temperatures vary between 23°C (74°F) in February and 29°C (84°F) in August.
The property features countless soft sand beaches, hilltop lookouts (with the highest elevations in the northern Exumas at 94ft) abundant fresh water lens, high rolling hills and lush vegetation. With two inland boat harbours/marinas, Wax Cay boasts deep-water access and frontage on both the Exuma Sound side and the calm, warm, shallow bank side.
Opportunities for activity on and around Wax Cay abound. A hiking trail winds along the full length of the mile long island, skirting secluded beaches offering exercise and opportunities to explore. For the more adventurous the area is ideal for fabulous sports fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing and kite boarding.
