Great Exuma Island

The Exuma islands are a string of islands and cays that form a pearl necklace of long forgotten hideaways, natural harbours and secluded beaches, that span over a hundred miles of clear blue water--a new island for every day of the year.

The Exuma chain comprises about 365 or more cays that stretch for about 130 miles beginning 30 miles southeast of New Providence.

First settled by British Loyalists fleeing America in 1783, you can still see remains of their deserted plantations. The uninhabited cays throughout the Exumas provide spectacular fishing opportunities.

The Exuma highlight has to be the locals. The genuinely friendly Bahamians will welcome you to the islands.

Great Exuma the largest island in the Exuma chain, with a population of approximately 5000, is a tropical paradise of unparalleled breathtaking ocean views, unforgettable beaches and miles of wadable flats. The idyllic climate of the Exumas makes it an ideal Bonefishing destination year round. With average winter temperature of 80 degrees and light breezes The beautiful flats are warm and inviting year round.


George Town, located on Elizabeth Harbor, is the capital of the Exumas. This charming island town offers all the services and amenities that a visitor needs. In George Town, you will find medical and dental clinics, a bank, liquor and food stores, car and boat rentals, restaurants and bars. A short walk up and down George Town's friendly streets is like taking a step back in time. No traffic, no stop lights, no crime, no resort strips, no suburban shopping malls, no pollution and no tourist hoards. Back to a simpler time, when friends and neighbors greeted each other on the streets and took the time to stop, listen and lend a helping hand.
