Great Exuma The Bahamas

Exuma Point

For those that find constant relaxation something they cannot handle then there are things to do. We suggest you rent a car and explore the island. Traveling west or north as the locals call it you will find Big D’s conch spot. This is about a 15 minute walk along the beach from Hart House or you can drive there in a few minutes. Big D’s is a great spot for lunch or dinner and is the happening place on Sunday nights. At the far west end of the island is the settlement of Barreterre, here you can explore the town or board a boat for a wonderful trip through the cays (pronounced keys) passing some of those rich and famous homes that your guide will point out.

You can see flocks of flamingos or spend some time with the swimming pigs. The boat trip is truly memorable. You can also visit Rolleville on Saturday or Sunday and spend the afternoon with Elvis and Maryanne at Exuma Point Bar & Grille. Here the fish and conch is so fresh you can see it being cleaned before its grilled, made into fritters or breaded for cracked conch. 

 

Golf CourseHeading east from Hart House you can visit the spa at Grand Isle or have lunch or dinner at their outdoor restaurant. Just down the road is the Sandals Resort at Emerald Bay and although this is an all inclusive facility you can purchase day or evening passes which allow you an all inclusive experience. There is the Greg Norman designed golf course which is open for public play and features more oceanfront fairways than any comparable seaside course in America.

Six signature holes hug the ocean where this championship course provides spectacular scenes of Emerald Bay’s turquoise waters. Traveling roughly 13 miles from Hart House you can experience the Fish Fry. Located just outside Georgetown you have around twelve different “shacks” all serving local foods for dinner at a very reasonable price. Walk around and check them out, some offer entertainment and in every case there will be friendly locals or tourists happy to share their stories of the day. On Saturdays there is a local farmers market located here where you can buy produce from the island.

 

Chat n ChillAnother mile takes you to Georgetown; here you can visit local eateries and bars such as Eddies Edge Water or Peace and Plenty. Friday night at P & P is popular with the tourists and Mondays at Eddies is usually busy. You can visit the straw market in town for souvenirs or continue around the corner where you get the water taxi for a trip to Stocking Island. A trip to Chat N’ Chill is always a lot of fun for couples or singles who just want to hang out and meet new people. If you’re traveling with children they will enjoy the 10 minute water taxi ride and when you arrive there are swings, volleyball, sun worshipping, feeding the manta ray and good eats.

 

 

Tropic of Cancer BeachJust outside of Georgetown on the way to Little Exuma you can visit February Point where you can arrange to play tennis or at dinner try their fine cuisine at the Bamboo Bistro overlooking the small marina. Next, cross over the bridge onto Little Exuma. You don’t want to miss a visit to Tropic of Cancer Beach. This beach was chosen as one of Bahamas 10 Best Beaches. It is secluded and safe and the sugary white sand stretches for miles. There are no facilities and very little shade so remember to pack some snacks and cold drinks and unless you are there to work on your tan bring a big umbrella.

 

 

 

Santana's Grill Pitt

After spending time here continue east to Santanas. This is a very popular beach grill where you can get fresh fish and lobster cooked to perfection. Ask Dee if you can see her picture album and see if you recognize some of the famous customers that you could end up rubbing elbows with. It’s unbelievable how down to earth people can be when they are relaxing in Exuma.
