Great Exuma Island, Bahamas
Great Exuma Island is the largest of a group of some 365 small islands and cays called the Exuma district. This location is legendary for those who seek desolate islands, coves and bays. The Exumas are a prime cruising ground for yachters. Main village is George Town and Elizabeth Harbour.
The islands are a popular spot for yachting, sailing, diving, and coral reef and cave exploring. Many of the unnamed beaches and coves of the islands, including extensive offshore reef areas, are included in the protected Exuma National Land and Sea Park of the Bahamas National Trust. Some of the islands on which there are permanent residents and resorts include Staniel Cay (home of the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, a fixture in the Exumas), Fowl Cay, Musha Cay and Iguana Cay.
