Our Top 10 Suggestions
Here are our top ten reasons to visit Exuma.
Some are well know, some not so well known. Have a look around as we have included photos, videos, information and links.
They are in no particular order.
1. Explore Moriah Cay
When was the last time you had the opportunity to explore a deserted island? To travel there under your own power and not see another soul. To walk through warm clear water and see fish of all sizes.
To walk the powder soft sandy coastline and find one of many sheltered bays each with the gentle waves lapping at your feet. Of course Moriah Cay is just one of the many beaches we recommend, follow this link to see more Exuma Beaches
Relax and enjoy .
2. Swimming Pigs Trip
We have recommended to almost all of our previous guest that they devote one day to the trip to see the swimming Pigs and without exception they have returned saying it was a trip to treasure for a long time (just check our guest reviews to see their words).
Your all day trip will include passing the Cays bought by the stars, stops to see wild Iguanas, Swim with Nurse Sharks, visit the swimming pigs, and explore Thunderball Cave, but rather than me go on about it, watch the video and see for yourself. want to see more of swimming pigs?

4. Dining Out
One of our favorite ways to spend a day is to lunch out at one of the many beachside restaurants, get a Kalik (local beer) and enjoy a meal such as lobster at Santanna’s.
On the way there we visit one of the beaches, and if we have the energy, another beach on the way home…heaven!
Talking of restaurants, I invite you to check our Restaurants page.
5. A Kayak Trip
My perfect day is to be in Exuma and to take my kayak to explore. It could be a trip through the mangroves, It could be around Moriah Cay to the Ocean or past Man O War Cay to the sandbar. I may see a Turtle, a Dolphin or a Sting Ray. Then home with a smile on my face and some good pictures in my camera,
talking of good pictures take a look at our kayaking page.
