Exuma is a district of the Bahamas, consisting of over 365 islands, also called cays. The largest of the cays is Great Exuma, which is 37 miles in length and joined to another island, Little Exuma by a small bridge. Flying into Grand Bahama International Airport is as simple as calling American Charter Services to book a domestic or international flight today!
In the Bahamas exists a gorgeous archipelago called Exuma that stays hidden from the rest of the world. Its unchanged beauty resonates across the 360 islands that exist within the district. Exuma is the perfect place to go to get away from the real world and all the stress that comes with it. Those visiting via private jet charter will never be disappointed, as Exuma offers its guests an experience unlike any other. The Bahamian culture shines through the palm trees, providing that “go with the flow” attitude that so many people lack when working constantly.
Little is known about Exuma prior to the colonization of the Caribbean by the Spanish and British. It’s believed that the Lucayan Indians that inhabited the rest of the Bahamas also lived on the islands of Exuma. The Spanish invaded the island and captured all the Islanders, bringing them to places like Hispaniola and other Spanish territories to work as slaves. This left Exuma empty for years to come. It wasn’t until 1648 that the British made landfall and began to inhabit the island themselves, followed by the American Loyalists escaping the revolutionary war in 1783. Exuma was also a famous destination for Caribbean pirates such as Blackbeard and Mary Read. It’s believed by modern inhabitants that there is hidden pirate treasure scattered throughout the archipelago.
Exuma is the place to go for those looking for a much needed relaxing vacation. Exuma offers world class beaches such as Cocoplum Beach. Located on Great Exuma, Cocoplum Beach is extremely accessible yet almost always void of people. The undeniably soft sand and crystal clear water make this one of most important stops on any vacation. Guests should also clear a day to visit Big Major Cay, home to the world famous swimming pigs. The pigs range from the size of piglets to that of giant pigs. Their presence on the island and affinity to swimming is a mystery to everyone, but many are flocking to Exuma in homes of swimming alongside the friendly pigs. Another great excursion for those looking to get away from the world and relax is Chat and Chill. Every Sunday, guests go to Stocking Island to enjoy a roast, the beautiful beach, and an evening away from it all. It gives guests a chance to really breathe and appreciate the beauty of the moment.
Exuma is home a wide array of beachfront bars and restaurants that overlook the water. Guests should check out Santana’s Grill Pit and Big D’s Conch Shack to really indulge in the local cuisine of the Bahamas while also enjoying the constant ocean breeze that flows through the open doorways.
Exuma is a world-class location that continues to hide away from the rest of the world.
