Exuma is a district of the Bahamas, consisting of over 360 islands (or cays). The largest of the cays, and the only one with any significant population, is Great Exuma, which is 37 mi (60 km) in length. The islands of the chain are also collectively referred to as the Exumas.
The Exuma island chain is 130 mi (209 km) long. The northernmost islands are under an hour away from Nassau by speedboat and many tour operators offer day trips. Great Exuma has the only airport in the islands, which receives flights from Atlanta, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Nassau. This airport is approximately 10 mi (16 km) north of the main settlement of George Town. The other islands may be reached by charter or your own boat.
Great Exuma and the connected Little Exuma can be seen via car. The other islands are accessible only by tour charter, boat, or private aircraft. The best way to explore the Exuma chain is on your own (or a friend's!) sailboat or yacht. it's a major recreational cruising route.
