Destination guide

Forbes Hill is the perfect place to swing in a hammock

The little town of Forbes Hill lies around 9 miles south of Exuma's capital George Town. Hugging the northern coast of Little Exuma, vacationers come to town for the clean ocean air and long stretches of incredibly beautiful beaches – try the picture-perfect Tropic of Cancer beach. While there is plenty to do near your Forbes Hill vacation rental, if all you want is to laze around in a hammock, sipping on a Caribbean punch and looking out to sea, there are few places in the world better to do it.

Things to do

Forbes Hill pigs may not fly but they do swim

If you can drag yourself away from the white sandy beaches and swaying palms, there are some fascinating things to do near your Forbes Hill vacation rental. If you can dive, the Blue Ade Under Water Cave is a unique geological wonder that you're not going to want to miss. For something a little different, you can head over to Staniel Cay to feed the Swimming Pigs. With no natural predators to worry about, the piggies are free to happily splash around in the shallow waters. If you happen to be in Exuma during April, you can see the classic yacht Family Island Regatta.

Activities

Countless coastal activities at Forbes Hill

Like most Caribbean islands, Exuma is blessed with a gorgeous coastline conducive to all manner of watersports. Just moments from your Forbes Hill vacation rental, you can splash around in the ocean, hit the water on kayaks, or dive under the surface to see the rich marine life. Alternatively, wade up to your waist with some conch scraps and feed the friendly resident stingrays. If all that sounds like too much effort, you can find yourself a quiet spot with a good book below the palms and while away a peaceful afternoon.

Weather

Escape the winter blues in Forbes Hill

There are few places which measure up to the climate in the Caribbean. Gorgeous bright blue skies and warm sunshine is the staple. When you stay at a Forbes vacation rental, you can expect the temperature to hover somewhere between 70°F and 80°F year-round. That said, the busiest time on the island is the winter, when vacationers escape the freezing weather back home. If you want to save your bucks for the watersports and enjoy emptier beaches, try to nab a rental between March and April before the rains of summer.

Natural features

Discover what lies below Forbes Hill's surface

Exuma's land-living wildlife is a little thin on the ground, though you might spot a few lounging lizards basking on the rocks, or crabs scuttling sideways across the beach. Where the magic really happens is in the surrounding sea. When you delve down into the underwater world you'll bump into all sorts of creatures of the deep. Expect to see curious turtles, schools of exotic fish and the odd harmless reef shark, not to mention the playful bottlenose dolphins which show off in the boat's wake. You're never far from nature when you stay at a Forbes Hill vacation rental.
