We have traveled all over, but this was our first trip to the Bahamas - the Exumas are infectious and Villa 30 was the perfect home base! Kathy was a perfect host. She gave us so many great tips for our itinerary and who to contact for anything you could need on the island. The villa was as advertised and fully equipped with all things needed to cook, bake, and head to the beach. Palm Bay and Splash were fun places to meet and play with other visitors and locals alike, as well as borrow kayaks, sand toys, and SUPs. We could easily get into town by walking or taking the shuttle from Palm Bay, even for groceries. Renting a car for at least one day is a good way to explore Great and Little Exuma. You can't miss Jolly Hall beach, Thunderball Grotto, or Stocking Island. The possibilities are really endless! We were a little disappointed that the Exumas were not into more eco-friendly practices, such as recycling, composting, renewable energy, picking up litter alongside the roads etc., but the islands sink into your soul and leave a permanent longing to be there forever! Or at least again and again and again!
