Things to Do in Exuma

Arriving from your home country, and regretfully, having to leave Exuma is convenient and efficient. The most direct way is via a direct flight on Delta, American, and Continental Airlines from the States or Air Canada direct from Toronto. Several scheduled daily flights to Nassau are available on a number of major airlines out of North America and Europe, in addition to many private charters. Entry requires just a valid passport and a return ticket, which you’ll likely be tempted to just tear up after your first day here.

Case in point, a day’s potential agenda: One might wake up and play a game of tennis, then lunch with the family at the beach, and then fish or dive all afternoon. After a brief nap, you might head out for some live rake and scrape music before joining friends and family for dinner, then relax on the patio for one of the many breathtaking sunsets. Then again, you might not, because it goes without saying that many of your best days are those you’ll spend doing absolutely nothing at all. Of the endless possibilities, some of the more sought-after activities include:

Boating/Island hopping

Traveling by boat with family and friends to the countless deserted cays and the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean is one of the cornerstones of the island experience. In fact, Exuma may be one of the few places in the world where you’ll find yourself passing on one breathtaking beach and moving to another simply because a single boat was already there. This experience is largely made possible by Exuma’s expansive soft water natural harbors, which provide wonderful access to so many possibilities without venturing into the open ocean and potential rough seas. Access to moorage, fuel and amenities is also excellent for those seeking multi-day waterborne adventure.


Whether with tanks or free diving the reefs and wrecks that fill the waters of the Exumas, the diving is simply far too amazing to miss. Because no rivers exist anywhere in the Bahamas, there is no sediment and no freshwater algae. As long as the winds have been fairly calm, you’ll likely see fish swimming more than 100 feet away. As far as we can tell if you’re living on an island surrounded by beautiful water this clean clear, and teeming with this much life, you might as well dive.


Many options exist for those not interested in leaping off cliffs, surfing, or tearing across a flat on a wakeboard! Just beachcombing is an extremely enjoyable and soulful activity. Even if you don’t find a thing that day, there is nothing wrong with a walk along a breathtaking beach alone or with family and friends. We encourage you to contact us for more information. Or better yet, just come visit. Wed relish the opportunity to show you The Good Life, as one can only communicate so much with mere words and pictures.


Both convenient and some of the most visually breathtaking flying one will ever encounter, dozens of small runways are peppered throughout the varied and beautiful island landscape of the Bahamas Archipelago. After even one flight, you’ll quickly realize flying, like most other things, is just better in the Bahamas


The 7,200-yard, par 72, Greg Norman-designed Oceanside course at Sandals is considered amongst the most challenging anywhere in the world and is, without question, one of the most beautiful you’ll ever experience.


At best misunderstood and by and large completely unknown, surfing in Exuma and the Bahamas is a quietly kept secret. Population and tourist centers have been, for the most part, located in protected areas of each island, and just around the corner, one may find the surf break of one’s dreams. In fact, every swell that hits the fabled breaks of the north and west shores of Puerto Rico hits the Bahamas first! Here, however, the lineups are empty and the water, is crystal clear. We at The Good Life| the Bahamas are avid surfers and would love a chance to show you the best breaks Exuma has to offer.


With a water-based activity for every wind/weather condition here on Exuma, endless beaches and protected coves offer acres of smooth water ideal for wakeboards, water skis, or sea kayaks. Add a little wind and it becomes the perfect location for sailing. Add even more wind and it’s time to get out the kite or windsurfing boards.
