What to Do in Exuma

Your vacation can be as active or as relaxing as you choose. Unlike many Caribbean islands, the Exumas are a safe island where you can feel comfortable exploring the Bahamian culture and the friendliness of the local community all on your own. The quaint town of Georgetown is just minutes away from February Point where you can shop charming boutiques , marvel at talented artists at the local straw market, taste delicious Bahamian food, or explore some of the unique history of the island. A few grocery stores are also located in George Town for your convenience.

Car rentals are available at the Georgetown airport if you choose to rent one for your stay to explore the beautiful island. Consider renting a boat or water taxis to enjoy many of the local attractions and the down home hospitality the island has to offer.

A must stop is Chat and Chill on Stocking Island where one can delight in an authentic Bahamian experience. This beach bar and grill won’t disappoint you with their delicious hamburgers and fries, or their famous Conch salad made fresh daily right on the beach. Join in on a volley ball game, Stingray feeding or just relax on its sandy beach and enjoy the island music. Don’t miss out; every Sunday is their very popular pig roast. Just take a water taxis from Government Dock for a fun filled day!

Popular Sports

Many popular sports can be experienced at various locations including snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, water skiing, shark diving and sailing. For a day of adventure, Exuma Water Sports offers a variety of fun excursions.

Yachtsman from all around the world come to Elizabeth Harbor in George Town for the renown Regattas and sailing events that take place each year.

The Exumas are ideal for fisherman of various tastes, whether you enjoy fishing in the shallow waters or trying your hand at deep sea fishing. The Flats located near Great Exuma is a perfect spot to catch an abundance of bonefish, grouper, snapper and lobster. Or if it is Marlin, Sailfish or Wahoo that you are hoping to hook the Exuma Sound is a prime location.

If golf is your sport, an 18 hole championship course awaits you at the Emerald Reef Golf Course, next to the new Sandals resort. The course was designed by golf legend Greg Norman. It offers pristine ocean side beauty along the turquoise waters.

Beaches

For beach lovers, one can’t miss some of the most private beautiful beaches in the world. Hamburger Beach, the secluded Tropic of Cancer, Coco Plum, and Sand Dollar Beach are only some of the breath taking beaches Exuma has to offer. If you are a little more adventurous there are many other small hidden coves and cays that dot the island that one can merely discover. No matter what beach you find, the warm turquoise waters of the Atlantic will prove to be an unforgettable experience.

By far, one of the most exotic, natural, breath- taking experiences is visiting the sand bar that magically appears out of the ocean in Elizabeth Harbor. If you catch it just right at low tide, it is a perfect location for an island wedding or engagement, as my son and his fiancé became engaged on this very sand bar just this past December. A truly memorable moment forever!

Where to Eat on the Island

Enjoy appetizing, traditional Bahamian dishes at its many local restaurants. For a truly delectable dining experience Bamboo Bistro at February Point is a must on the list. The Augusta Bay and Peace & Plenty offer a very appetizing cuisine. The Sandals Resort offers a variety of dining experiences. For a fantastic selection of local favorites try the Splash Club or the Fish Fry.

Without a doubt, not only will you fall in love with the island of Exuma, you will fall in love with its people. The Bahamian people are some of the most warm and hospitable people in the world. We hope you will come and stay awhile in the Serenity House and get a taste of the real Bahamas –Exuma!

About Allen Henn

Our family is from the state of PA. When our 3 children were young we traveled many summers to the beaches closest to our home. The dark green, grayish waters were always cold and the beaches were packed with vacationers. As the children grew older we were fortunate to travel to many places in the Caribbean. Last summer, we traveled to the island of Exuma. By far, it was the vacation of a lifetime. We fell in love with the crystal clear, 85 degree aqua water. Exuma’s countless white beaches are pristine and private. It allows our family to enjoy its beautiful climate and water all year round while having fun experiencing all of the island’s many activities including snorkeling, fishing, golfing, swimming, and shopping. Not only do we feel that Exuma is one of the prettiest places in the world, we have found it to be one of the safest. The Bahamian people are beyond doubt some of the friendliest people we have ever met. We truly have fallen in love with Exuma and hope you would like to experience it too!

Why Allen Henn chose Bahamas

The gated February Point community speaks for itself. The pleasant smile and conversation that the guard at the front gate greets visitors is the first warm welcoming that February Point offers. One then travels on the road through the beautiful lush tropical vegetation to the Serenity House. February Point offers many amenities including tennis courts, a swimming pool, a marina and a gym. Overlooking the gorgeous marina, February Point offers a delightful restaurant and bar. Georgetown is a mere 5 minutes away and ocean side golf is only a 30 minute drive. We would not want to be located anywhere else on the island.

What makes this house unique

Our villa is the perfect place to create unforgettable vacation memories with family and friends. The location is ideal, right on the ocean. It can accommodate up to 9 people comfortably. The kitchen and family room areas are open which allows for plenty of gathering space. The wall of glass doors in the family room swing open to the outside furnished patio. One can fire up the barbeque grill and enjoy eating outside or just sit and relax and take in the breathtaking view of aqua blue ocean and smell of the salt air.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had visited February Point once before and chose this villa because of the personal dock. It did not disappoint! Great space, very clean, wonderful view. Al was very responsive and had wonderful local contacts for us as well- seriously they could not have been a nicer group! If you're going to cook while you are here, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need pots and pans wise, but bring salt/pepper/olive oil etc. Also bring some bug spray as the flies were bad outside (but could have been time of year). They just did a great patio renovation that is GORGEOUS and we absolutely loved sitting out on it each night. Great proximity to the new beach club as well- quick walk to the pool/restaurant. We did a private excursion with Captain Jerry one day and he picked us up at Feb Point marina which is a quick 2 minute walk. We also did a deep sea fishing excursion with Captain Peter and he picked us up and dropped us off right from the dock of the house! Cannot say enough good things about the experience and we cannot wait to return to this villa!!

Really....pigs can swim!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Serenity Villa could not have been more enjoyable! Waking up every morning and looking out at beautiful Elizabeth harbor and going to bed every night after spending a full day exploring the beautiful beaches and diving in the crystal clear Bahamian waters is everything an island vacation should be.

With it's 3+ bedrooms, living area, kitchen, and outdoor amenities, the Serenity Villa was perfect for our family of seven and made for a very comfortable stay. There's lots to do in Exuma and we took full advantage of all the adventures and the beaches the island has to offer. Sunday's at the Chat n' Chill pig roast, dinner at Santana's, Karaoke at the fish fry, swimming pigs, Thunder ball grotto what an awesome time. By mid-week, we all needed a down day and we discovered the location of the Serenity Villa really makes you never want to leave the property. The pool, restaurant and spa at the Sapphire club were spectacular. The club had just purchased brand new paddle boards, we all paddled out onto Elizabeth harbor, for a few hours what a blast!

The view, the location, the rooms, the Sapphire bar and pool area -- everything at this house was perfect. We loved it and will be back again soon!

High quality house in February Point

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house in February Point. It is at least as nice as the pictures. The finishes and furniture are all high quality and in like-new condition. There was one very minor maintenance item with the house which we emailed the owner about and he had a plumber there within hours to fix it. We spent many hours looking on VRBO debating where to stay on our trip to the Exumas. After going, I highly recommend February Point over other much more remote areas such as Tar Bay, etc. and inside February Point, this house is a very good option.

Most Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Villa DD! The owner, Al was extremely responsive from the time we asked for availability to the day after our vacation. The house is absolutely lovely with all of the appointments for comfortable relaxation, rested nights, great dinners prepared in house, access to our rented boat and a quick walk to town. We spent every day out on the water exploring the islands and eating burgers at Chat n Chill. We took the boat to the grocery store and everywhere else for that matter. It was a fantastic vacation and the house and the owners made it so easy to walk in the door and relax!

Our family has been reliving our week spent at Villa Serenity ever since returning home. We took our family to Exuma to renew our vows for our 30th anniversary. The Villa itself was a perfect fit for our family of 7. My husband and sons had great success fly fishing for bonefish. Al was very informative prior to our arrial with all sorts of helpful info to assist in making our trip special. Kwanza at The Chat n Chill made our special day so personal and perfect. The only regret I have is that I didn't find this place sooner. We look forward to returning but in the meantime will resort to the 100's of pictures to bring back the feeling of nirvana ...
