Plan Your The Exumas Vacation

The Exumas are known for their gorgeous 365 cays—most uninhabited, some owned by celebrities. Get the wind and sea salt in your hair as you cruise through the pristine 120-mile chain. The water here is some of the prettiest in the world, and comes in every shade of blue and green (you'll grow tired trying to name the exact color); beaches are dazzling white. Combine that with fresh

seafood and friendly locals, and you have yourself one of the best vacation destinations in the Bahamas.

Top Reasons To Go

  1. Party like a local Hot spots include the Fish Fry on weekends for conch salad and fresh fish and Chat ’N' Chill on Stocking Island for Sunday pig roasts.
  2. Island-hop You'll want to spend a couple of days boating through the 365 cays (one for every day of the year, as the locals say), most uninhabited, some owned by celebrities. Get ready for iguanas, swimming pigs, and giant starfish.
  3. Enjoy empty beaches Beautiful stretches of bleach-white sand are yours to explore, and more often than not you'll be the only person on them, even at noon on a Saturday.
  4. Explore the Land and Sea Park Underwater attractions in the 176-square-mile Exuma Land and Sea Park, one of the best snorkel sights in the Bahamas, include queen conchs, starfish, and thriving coral reefs. Keep a lookout for the endangered hawksbill and threatened green and loggerhead turtles.
