The Exumas Bahamas Catamaran

The clear jade and aquamarine waters make The Exumas one of the most breathtaking collection of islands in the Bahamas. From footprint free, white sand beaches to hidden sandbars, this tropical paradise continues to be one of the most exclusive gems in the Caribbean. In The Exumas the coastlines remain flawless and private homes play host to some of the world’s most famous celebrities.

The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 cays and islands, beginning just 35 miles southeast of Nassau. Once called Yumey and Suma (names of Amer-Indian origin), the islands have gone through many changes over the years. Today, they’re divided into three major areas—Great Exuma, Little Exuma and The Exuma Cays. Each offers its own unique Bahamian experience. Great Exuma and Little Exuma are known for their laid-back surroundings, while The Exuma Cays act as a playground for the rich and famous, boasting numerous private homes, luxury resorts and beachside condos. The Exumas are also rich in history, as they were settled by British Loyalists with their slaves following the American Revolution.

Covering 13,440 acres, it is a vital part of the ecosystem between Great and Little Exuma. It includes sand dunes, beaches, mangroves and sea grass beds, home to nesting seabirds and a nursery for marine life.

These “domesticated” pigs live on Major’s Spot Cay, and it’s uncertain how they got there. Whenever a boat arrives, they swim out to it with the expectation of being fed, a practice that’s been going on for years.

Stromatolites, the oldest known macro-fossils on earth, encode biological activity that could span thousands of years. Beaches on the Atlantic side of Stocking Island have some, and modern stromatolites thrive in the Cays.

Also called Pelican Beach and named for its geographic coordinate, this graceful crescent of white-powder sand borders the translucent blue-green water along the coast of Little Exuma. It is the longest beach on the island and prettiest in the Exuma chain.
