Nature brings remarkable beauty to every detail of Great Exuma and its bountiful waters. Leisurely outings are rich with discoveries on nearby beaches and deserted islands. Enjoy a relaxed solitude, explore side-by-side, or slow down island-style with your family and friends.
For an adventure of a lifetime, take a tour of the Exuma Cays and experience the abundant beauty and sea creatures along the way. Advanced reservations are required; contact the Concierge for all your excursion reservations.
Whether you’re in search of bathing beauties (Sports Illustrated shot here recently) or sand dollars, Great Exuma’s beaches are breathtakingly beautiful. Just a short walk from Grand Isle Resort, the family-friendly Coco Plum Beach is a low-tide favorite for shelling.
Hollywood agrees: Exuma offers a beautiful backdrop for filming and first-class relaxation. On- and off-screen spots include Sandy Cay (seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest) and the dream homes of A-listers like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Chuck Norris and John Travolta.
Exploring by boat is one of the best ways to see the Exuma’s deserted islands and sand bars and enjoy amazing snorkeling on remote reefs. Don’t miss Thunderbolt Grotto (seen in Thunderball and Splash) and the secluded and historic hideouts of pirates like Captain Kidd.
Great Exuma’s fresh water ponds, tidal flats and the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park are prime spots for birdwatchers. Keep your eyes peeled for local feathered friends, including the Zenaida Dove, Bahama Woodstar and Greater Antillean Bullfinch.
Excursions require reservations in advance. Please call the Concierge at 242.358.5000, stop by the Front Desk or send an email to the concierge to reserve your adventures.
