History

The two largest islands, Great Exuma Island and Little Exuma Island, are located at the far southern tip of the Exuma chain of islands and play host to much of the province’s commerce and tourism. The capital of the Exumas is Georgetown, home to  exquisite sugar sand beaches, the crystal-blue waters and the lush tropical greenery attracting  people from around the globe.

Once historically abundant with pirates, now most of the surrounding cays are uninhabited, quiet, and privately owned. The average year round temperature is 78 degrees. Exuma is located 135 miles southeast of Nassau, and just 50 minutes by air from Miami International Airport.

Fresh pineapple, tomatoes, guava, sweet mangoes, avocados and pigeon peas are the pride of the island and are exported nationwide. The Exumas also claim bragging rights to their place in Hollywood, having twice been the location for James Bond films-more than any other island in The Bahamas and were recently featured in the Johnny Depp- Pirates of the Caribbean- series of films.
