The best part is that the plane is one of the most intact wrecks in the world. A mask and a snorkel are all you need to experience this mystery to which Staniel Cay’s Air Traffic Control was the first to discover.

Around the Bahamas, and especially near the Exumas, these beautiful sandbanks show themselves at low tide, amidst turquoise waters that glisten on white sand that will soon be under the sea.
