Any trip to the Bahamas is surely to be memorable. The crystal clear water of the Bahamas makes these islands popular for swimming, sailing, snorkeling, yachting and fishing. Divers love to explore the beautiful coral reefs. Other explorers venture into the islands’ many caves and coves, some of which are unnamed.
But mainly tourists come to relax and enjoy the seemingly endless sandy beaches and warm, sunny days. A popular destination is the District of Exuma. Comprised of more than 360 islands and cays (pronounced “keys”), Exuma is one of the more prominent portions of the Bahamas.
The Exumas are popular with American celebrities. Nicolas Cage, David Copperfield, Johnny Depp, and Tim McGraw are among the many well-to-do who have staked out their claim in the Bahamas by purchasing a cay. Eagle-eyed tourists are sometimes rewarded during their Bahamas vacations.
Great Exuma is the largest of the Exumas; its capitol is George Town. There, tourists enjoy the many facets of Bahamian culture. You can take advantage of some great shopping, golf on a Greg Norman-designed course, and let your hair down in Bahamian nightlife.
