Located just 35 miles south of Nassau is the start of a group of
islands called the Exumas, arguably the most beautiful in the
Bahamas. The chain of 365 islands and cays stretches to around 130
miles with endless possibility for diving, fishing and island
For the divers, beautiful walls where you have the chance of
seeing hammerheads, thrilling shark dives, swim-throughs and blue
holes can all be experienced and great options for snorkelling too.
One of the best ways to experience diving the Exumas is by
liveaboard and we think we have found the best: Aquacat.
When it comes to land-based accommodation, there is one
particular 80-acre paradise stands out from all the rest: Fowl Cay.
This is the perfect laidback luxury for couples and families and is
a good all-round hotel in the Caribbean. Whether you snorkel or
dive you are in for a treat. Snorkel in the beautiful cave where
scenes from a James Bond movie were filmed or dive the untouched
reefs. The more adventurous can join the local dive boat and
snorkel above the divers on some of the fast shallow drifts over
fields of brightly coloured corals and giant sponges home to
turtles (including the increasingly rare Loggerhead), rays, nurse
shark and endless tropical fish, or even better join the divers to
get closer to the action.
