There are numerous islands in the Exumas, but Great Exumas serves as the anchor for tourism.  It remains laid back while being able to accommodate tourists who need a little luxury in their getaway.  As far as things to see and do, they all revolve around the outdoors and include beaches, a nature reserve, and some unique land formations. 


Tropic Of Cancer Beach

There are several beaches to enjoy on the island. Whether you enjoy people watching, or you prefer a quieter spot, you should find some appealing options. Click on each beach name to read a detailed article concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Hooper's Bay Beach: The beach is north of George Town and and about 5 miles from the airport. You can park on the peninsula that forms the Bay, and walk the short path from there.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is Tropic Of Cancer Beach. The beach is located in Moore Hill on the eastern part of Exuma. You can reach the beach by car, but once you cross the bridge onto Little Exuma from Great Exuma, you may want to ask directions from a local.
