Gateway to Great Exuma Island, George Town is the place to get into one of the greatest Out Islands. It’s where you’ll find your way through charming color-washed buildings and out into the wonders of the island. Some of the world’s best beaches are here, as are exciting underwater caverns, amazing fishing and boating, and rich native and colonial histories that inspire the spectacular hospitality and food.


A top attraction is the 176-square mile Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, a stunning marine environment. If you’re a romantic at heart, visit Three Sisters Rock, a famous Bahamas legend – even a glimpse of this sea rock formation sparks romance and magic. On land, explore the history of Exuma’s capital, George Town. Commandeered by pirates in the 17th century, today, it’s a favorite hangout for yachters.

  • Island Boy Adventures, Out-Island Explorers Day Charters and Exuma Sunrise Tours offer informative and fun ways of seeing the island.
  • St Andrew’s Anglican Church adds a bit of British flavour to the history of George Town.


George Town is just the starting point for excitement. You’re close to extraordinary cave diving, exquisite snorkeling, spine-tingling sport fishing, PGA player-designed golf courses, and even swimming pigs on Major’s Cay. All are easily accessible from George Town.

  • Live Good Adventures can take you to see the cute swimming pigs, and set you up with SCUBA or snorkeling gear for checking out the famous Thunderball Grotto from the James Bond movie series.
  • Work on your handicap at Emerald Bay, one of the best courses in the entire Caribbean.


Pick up an authentic basket or purse from The Straw Market on your way to George Town. If you like the local works you see on display around the island – they likely come from Yuma Arts, which has a wide selection for sale. All the resort shops sell duty-free gifts, crafts and souvenirs.

  • Local artwork is on display at galleries like Wenshua and Sandpiper.
  • ​Shop for spa services at Healing Hands or Island Wellness


Great Exuma Island dining at its best combines the freshest seafood with seaside ambiance, but you can also find international cuisine once you’ve enjoyed one too many conch salads. You may have to travel a bit outside of George Town, but the trip will be worth it.

  • La Fourchette offers French in addition to Caribbean/Bahamian.
  • Chat ’n’ Chill is still a top choice for boaters, and boasts a sublime beach location.
