The Exuma Islands are made up of 365 cays and islands, beginning just 35 miles southeast of Nassau. The islands have gone through many changes over the years. Today, they’re divided into three major areas—Great Exuma, Little Exuma and The Exuma Cays. Each offers its own unique Bahamian experience. Great Exuma and Little Exuma are known for their laid-back surroundings, while The Exuma Cays act as a playground for the rich and famous, boasting numerous private homes, luxury resorts and beachside condos. The Exumas are also rich in history, as they were settled by British Loyalists with their slaves following the American Revolution.

Highbourne Cay Marina
242-355-1008
Highbourne Cay, Exuma

Highbourne Cay was a refuge for escaped slaves during the colonial era and home to a stunning, scarcely visited beach along the east side. The Island sits at a slightly higher sea level than is found on most Bahamian islands, so it shouldn't be hard to spot. Peer over the dock to see a swarm of nurse sharks flocking to one spot like birds seeking bread as the local dockhands throw unwanted conch—aka “slop”—into the water.

Jimmy Buffett listed the Staniel Cay Yacht Club in his Top 10 Island Bars and most will agree it is the “Shangri-La” of the Exumas. One of the tourist attractions is diving into the cave where parts of the James Bond movie Thunderball were filmed. It’s also possible to visit a small local cay called Big Majors, where there are swimming pigs. Take your dinghy and motor to Big Majors, where the wild swimming pigs love leftover conch fritters or any food you want to give them.
