About Exuma

A 90 minute flight from Florida heading South East will take you to another world that is so timeless and pristine, you will forget about everything back home. Exuma is one part of the Bahamas that is described wonderfully in articles, websites and magazines but to get the experience of a lifetime; you have to come here. Many years have passed, yet so much of its natural resources and untouched treasures still remain and you are greeted by some of the friendliest people in the world. Go into its alluring communities and you will find the most charming accommodations provided by places like Hartwell Cottages, Minns Cottages and Master Harbour Villas. Sincerity holds sway here because everyone is so genuine, even in the little shops and businesses, restaurants and grocery stores. Yes Exuma is extremely beautiful but its people are even more and are its best attractions. The Bahamas is a country like no other and the out islands; especially Exuma proves that fact again and again.
