Exuma has an island for every day of the year

With over 365 cays making up this part of the Bahamas in the Caribbean, Exuma has an island for every day of the year. Not all are inhabited though, and they range from the largest island of Great Exuma, down to comically small spits of sand adorned by nothing more than the odd swaying palm tree. Exuma has long been the hideaway of the world's most famous, but don't let that put you off – there is a range of Exuma vacation rentals to suit all budgets. When you land, you can spend every day tiptoeing across the white sand down to the sapphire-blue Caribbean Sea. Bliss.

Laze on the beach in Exuma

You don't need to do anything more than simply laze around on the white sandy shore, perhaps swing in a hammock and read a book, or amble down to cool off in the sea. However, if you're not a beach bum, there are plenty of other options to keep you busy. The active amongst us can take the short but very pretty walk across Stocking Island. Alternatively, you can hop into warm, waist-high water to feed resident stingrays or don a mask and flippers to find other creatures of the deep. The boat operators offering afternoon trips along the beach are well worth visiting.

James Bond on Exuma

For a little slice of Exuma history, a visit to the Hermitage reveals some interesting architecture dating back more than 250 years. Afterwards, consider swimming to Thunderball Grotto, a natural underwater cave used in James Bond's Never Say Never Again. One of the quirkiest, yet most popular things to do, is a visit to see the famous Swimming Pigs near Staniel Cay. With no predators, these happy piggies are free to frolic around in the cool ocean accepting feeds from eager visitors. After all that hard work, be sure to swing by Shirley's at the Fish Fry, a colorful shack offering exquisite Caribbean seafood.

Exuma beats the winter blues

Weather-wise, there are few places that match up to the Caribbean. When you stay in an Exuma vacation rental, you can expect comfortable temperatures that hover around 77°F, cooled somewhat by a delicious sea breeze. Winter sees the biggest influx of vacationers coming to escape the snow back home. For the best deals on Exuma vacation rentals, nab one between March and April when you'll avoid the crowds but still enjoy the bright weather. That said, if you don't mind the odd afternoon downpour, you can enjoy rock-bottom prices and you may very well have the whole beach to yourself.

Under the sea in Exuma

Though you'll find the odd lounging iguana basking on the rocks, or land crab scuttling across the sand, most of Exuma's critters are found under the water's surface. This colorful underwater world is inhabited by all sorts of creatures of the deep. You may very well bump into a curious hawksbill turtle or reef shark, not to mention the schools of parrotfish and grouper. When you cross from one island to another, dolphins often show off by jumping in the boat's wake. You're never far from marine life when you stay in an Exuma vacation rental.
