The Palms at Three Sisters - English
The Legend of Three Sisters Rocks
Bahamas Real Estate
  The tale of the rocks at Three Sisters beach is rich in Bahamian lore. An English captain brought his ship to the Bahamas looking for treasure. When he took harbor in Exuma for protection from a great storm, he met 3 beautiful sisters. Each fell in love with him. Finally the day came for him and his crew to set sail. Each sister, one by one, jumped into the sea to try and swim after his ship. Unfortunately, all 3 drowned in their effort. After each died, a rock sprung up from the ocean marking the location. Ever since, Bahamians have considered the area of the Three Sisters rocks as a place of good luck and romance. Even today, many Bahamians exchange their wedding vows on this magical beach.
