Innocence Island

Some corners of the world are simply more beautiful than the rest — Innocence Island is one such locale. One of the last unspoiled bastions in the magical Exuma chain of islands, Innocence is separated not only by space and time, but by extraordinary natural beauty and total privacy. Virtually untouched by man, its 681 unspoiled acres of native fruit trees and tropical foliage, soft terraced hills, and pristine beaches are waiting to greet you with an intrinsic aura of peace and tranquility that instantly lowers you blood pressure…and your intuitions. Getting to the island is a breeze with an airstrip on-site. No plane? No problem. Hop on a chartered flight from nearby Nassau, Miami, Atlanta or even Toronto, and you’ll be lounging in idyllic island privacy in no time. Truly, to call Innocence Island home is worth any journey.

Private Island. Private Plane.

Arrive in style to your little piece of heaven by landing on-site at the island’s private runway. This 2,700-foot tarmac airstrip comes complete with its own permitted airport code — MYEY — and is suited to handle small jets with ample opportunity for expansion. The sky truly is the limit on Innocence Island!

Ideal Island Living

Whether it’s adventure or relaxation you seek, Innocence Island is waiting to cater to your every whim. Positioned 90 feet above sea level, the elegantly-appointed 5,000-square-foot main house sits atop the island, offering 360-degree views of lush scenery at every turn from its expansive tiered decks. Though this six bedroom and six full bath timber frame residence accommodates an impressive 10–12 guests, there is no shortage of privacy — steal away from the group at the boat dock, in a hammock under a sleepy palm, or at hidden beach cove. For those who want to step things up a notch, a separate hillside bungalow houses a gym with an expansive yoga and meditation deck overlooking the bay. “Om.”
