The James Bond Islands
The location of not one but two James Bond movies – Thunderball and Never Say Never Again – the Exumas are made up of 365 islands and cays strung out like jewelled stepping stones across more than 193 km of shimmering emerald ocean. The bright white sand of the deserted beaches contrasts strikingly with the deep aquamarine and jade hues of the water, making this chain one of the prettiest in The Bahamas.
Enjoy a warm welcome
Most of Exuma's 3,600 residents live on Great Exuma or Little Exuma, the two largest islands, which are connected by a short bridge. Known for being friendly and outgoing, the locals of the Exumas are genuinely happy to welcome holidaymakers.
