1. Very Safe

A charming, quaint island village atmosphere that is home to about 7,500 people – 4,500 on the main islands of Great Exuma and Little Exuma, and 3,000 spread out around the other 363 islands and cays. No solicitors or hagglers approach you on the beaches, streets or in the shops. Stable democratic government. No radical or terror groups.


2. Best Location

Ideally located just off the coast of the familiar, 50-minute flight from Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. There is an availability of connections from American Airlines, Bahamas Air, Air Canada, Delta, Continental, USAir, Watermaker’s Air or easy to arrange your own private jet arrivals.

3. Friendly People

English is the spoken language however with a Bahamian-Island British Accent that makes you feel as though you are worlds away. Bahamians love tourists and you will meet many life-long friends.


4. Unspoiled Beaches

You’ll discover empty stretches of powder white sand beaches, no high rise hotels, no tourist traps, just intimate style resorts, cottages and homes that offer couples their own hideaway in paradise.
