Photograph by: Steve MacNaull, Postmedia News EXUMA, Bahamas — It’s quite possibly the hardest to find strip of sand in the Caribbean. It’s Tropic of Cancer Beach in Exuma, Bahamas, an elusive powder white crescent that we sought directions for three times, yet ended up passing by twice before finally locating it with gasps of equal parts relief and slack-jawed awe. Yes, this beach’s initial cachet is its famous name. The Tropic of Cancer, that imaginary line at 23 degrees latitude that marks the northernmost point of the tropics, runs right along the edge of where scrubby dune meets pristine sand.
