Island Living

The Exumas’ are renowned for their excellent sparkling clear waters and known the world over as a yachtsman’s paradise. Fill your day with as much or as little activity as your heart desires. The climate is ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. Leave your wetsuit at home and enjoy average water temperatures ranging from 78 degrees F. in the winter to 82 degrees F. in the summer. 

World class game fishing and legendary bone fishing draw visitors the world over in search of that trophy fish.

If golf and a day at the spa are more your style owners at Roker Point Estates will be able to enjoy these amenities for a nominal fee, at Sandals Emerald Bay Resort and Spa adjacent to the property.
 

Elizabeth Harbor

Great Exuma is also home to one of the finest harbors in The Bahamas, Elizabeth Habour,  one of the most protected deep-water harbors in the island chain. Elizabeth Harbor surrounds George Town and this popular location is where hundreds of cruising boats congregate each winter. A five minute boat ride across the harbor is Stocking Island where more beautiful beaches, pristine coral reefs and beach bars attract visitors each day.

Many  events take p[lace throughout the year in Elizabeth Harbour including The Family Island Regatta in late April, a world famous, three day, colorful boating event,  which draws crowds of local participants and spectators  from every corner of The Bahamas.

 

Stocking Island

Immerse yourself in the warm, clear, welcoming waters of Stocking Island, whose beaches are  frequented by avid boaters during the cruising season. This outlying barrier island is only a 5 minute boat ride across from Georgetown, Exuma’s capital  and provides safe swimming and snorkeling with relatively calm and shallow waters.

Pull up a stool at the Chat and Chill bar and grill and while away the day, or slip down to the beach for a game of volleyball or a closer look at the marine life as locals feed lazy stingrays as they float carelessly by. A day on Stocking Island will  leave a lasting memory.
