Great Exuma Bahamas has earned its remarkable reputation by being
one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the Caribbean.
Discriminating travellers choose Great Exuma for its friendly
people and stunning natural beauty. The island may be small but there are many beautiful
sights to see, one of which is the impressive Flamingo Bay.

quiet enclave with a select number of luxurious villas. A spectacular coral reef,
approximately one mile out, prevents breaking waves and allows you to walk on a sandy
ocean floor and swim in calm waters.
Unlike many Caribbean destinations, Flamingo Bay is not densely
populated and does not play host to an endless number of tourists. Life in and around the
bay is serene and relaxed, yet there is still much one can do.
There is a view of Stocking Island, separating Exuma from the ocean.
Stocking Island can be accessed by kayak or ferry and there's
overnight accommodation at Higgins Landing if
you prefer to stay over.
Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy the excellent bone-fishing nearby.

this 18-hole championship course is one of the best ocean-side courses in the world.
And, even if you are not an avid boater, it is impossible to remain
unimpressed by the Bay's marina. Stroll around and marvel at the stunning vessels or hop
aboard one for the day.
