We visited this location and it hasn't been mowed in ages. We were attacked by mosquitos so promptly left upon visiting.

We visited the island but there was nothing special about the tombs and off the beaten path. It was OK but would not visit again

well preserved, serene. There is some signage but much better with a guide to explain the historical aspect.

Not a lot to see but I appreciated the guide display explaining its significance. Humbling anytime one visits a cemetery.

A must stop to see some of Exuma's history and beautiful natural landscapes. Rolle Town is a rather sleepy and peaceful village full of friendly neighbors.

Its a small burial ground with very old tombs in the ground. Stickers everywhere but we really liked being able to walk around and see it.

Our tour guide brought us here on our way to the Tropic of Cancer beach. It was very interesting to learn a little of Exuma history. The tombs date from the late 1700's.

The solemn tombs lay tribute to a family from the late 1700's. Interesting graveyard, epitaphs and tombs of a mother and child.
