With sapphire-blue water everywhere, the Exumas are an exotic collection of dream destinations. Palm fringed beaches and super-exclusive resorts and islands make this tropical paradise an absolute gem. The Exumas truly are the ultimate escape.
The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 cays and islands, beginning just 35 miles southeast of Nassau. Once called Yumey and Suma (names of Amer-Indian origin), the islands have gone through many changes over the years. Today, they’re divided into three major areas: Great Exuma, Little Exuma and The Exuma Cays. Each offers its own unique Bahamian experience.
Great Exuma and Little Exuma are known for their laid-back surroundings, while the Exuma Cays act as a playground for the rich and famous, boasting numerous private homes, luxury resorts and beachside condos.
