Great Exuma _ the tropical getaway you're looking for

Surround yourself with twinkling beaches that glow so white you'd think they were sugar powder. Book beds overlooking bays of cerulean blue. Be just a stone's throw from those Caribbean sands you've seen in the travel brochures. That's all possible with Great Exuma vacation rentals, which pepper the coves and coast and handsome Carib towns of the largest of the Exuma Cays. Trips here are often taken up by a medley of SCUBA diving, sizzling fish fries, sunbathing, boating, and well-earned R&R. It could easily be the tropical getaway for which you've been searching.

Things to do

Cays and cracking beaches abound in Great Exuma

It's the "pinch-me-I'm-dreaming" beaches of Great Exuma and the larger Exuma Cays that really take the biscuit here. Prepare to be wowed by the sheer fluorescence of the sands at spots like Coco Plum and Stocking Island. There are more untouched natural wonders all over the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, which encompasses pristine islets and coral banks close to the docks of Great Exuma itself. An excursion to Big Major Cay is also a must for travelers of all ages _ it's home to a group of swimming pigs.

Activities

Breathe easy in Great Exuma

A vacation to Great Exuma is never a chore. Days here are all about wallowing in the tropical warmth, splashing in the see-through shore waters of the Caribbean Sea, pulling yoga poses to the sunset, soothing the muscles in the spas, and simply cranking up the Vitamin D levels while sunbathing under the shade of stooping palm trees. There's some adventure if you happen to want it. That comes in the form of SCUBA diving and jet skiing, marine safaris to the nearby lagoons and local islander marketplaces.

Weather

Great Exuma is tropical to the T

Great Exuma vacation rentals are a ticket to the glorious tropical beaches of the Bahamas. Warm weather and sunshine is a must for making the most of the glowing bays and lagoons. That means that a trip outside of the main storm season, when cyclones pass through the Atlantic Hurricane Belt, is the best. You can come anytime between November and March to catch great weather, but bear in mind the boom times of Christmas, when loads of snowbirds flock here to avoid the cold, and Spring Break.
