Great Exuma: In Exuma, one of the 'Out Islands' of the Bahamas, life remains as it was decades ago.
Often the only sounds you may hear are the songs of birds in the air, and the gentle lapping of the sea on the shore.
When you arrive on Exuma, you are greeted by some of the friendliest people on earth, the Exumians. You are welcomed to their community as an honored guest, not as a tourist that must be tolerated. The island's simplicity and unpretentiousness are exemplified in the atmosphere of the community.
Great Exuma is completely different from the crowded, noisy, flash of the Atlantis casino of Paradise Island and Nassau. No condominiums towers here!
The allure of Exuma can be contagious. As you will see, your views of the sunset will be unimpeded by high-rises, and your star gazing will be clear and bright without the interference of bright lights and commercial glitz.
A day in Exuma can be spent in a variety of activities, and all are easily arranged at your lodging. The serenity and beauty of Exuma can be experienced by fishing, bonefishing, scuba diving or snorkeling, power or sail boating, bicycling, hiking, or exploring the island and beaches by rental car or taxi tour.
In George Town, take a walking tour. Visit the central straw market under the big African fig tree for some authentic Bahamian crafts, enjoy the architecture of the Government Administration Building or the 150 year old St. Andrews Anglican Church. As you stroll around George Town's Lake Victoria, be sure to linger along the way at the many shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and local businesses that encircle the lake. Have some cracked conch, drink a Kalik (the Bahamas own beer), and strike up an amiable conversation with a local.
Slow down, sit back and relax...you're in Exuma!
