Postcard from The Bahamas

A beach-bum's paradise with scattered islands, beguiling waters and sizzling shorelines, The Exumas are a 120-mile long archipelago of 356 cays. Go with the flow of the reggae rhythm, dive into the luminous, cyan-blue ocean, bask on secluded sandy beaches or swoon over the sapphire sea and breath-taking beauty. Whatever you decide - if you can drag yourself away from your sun-lounger, you'll see that in The Exumas, the beach is just the beginning.

With an infinity pool, a fitness centre and spa and a popular, romantic restaurant – Palapa Grill – Grand Isle is an all-in-one holiday and a great option when staying in the Exuma Islands.


EAT

The Bahamas is famous for its phenomenal conch. Try it cracked, fried, marinated, whatever. Just make sure you try it.


SWIM

Swimming with pigs. Yes, it’s a real thing. These curious paddling porkers have been at Major Cay in the Exuma Islands for decades and no one truly knows how they got there. Undoubtedly one for the bucket-list, it’s one of the most unique Caribbean experiences that you simply must see to believe.


ISLAND HOP

Island hop the 365 Exuma cays. Endless, sparkling waters painted every shade of blue, mysterious underwater caves, sunken drug planes and friendly nurse sharks. These impressive islets each offer something spectacular and unique.


SNORKEL

Snorkel at the James Bond movie set, Thunderball Grotto. Located near to Staniel Cay, explore the cave through a hidden underwater entrance and admire the coral reefs and fish as well as the stunning scenery inside.


WANDER

Wander along the secluded sand bar at Musha Cay. Owned by illusionist David Copperfield this strip of sugary-white, soft sand offers incredible views of the multi-hued waters and is a true piece of paradise.
