Bahamas Freeport

 

 

Comprised of more than 360 cays and islands, Exuma is acknowledged to be one of the most popular districts in Bahamas, and it is in one of its cays where favorite water-based recreational activities, such as cave exploring, yachting, snorkeling, sailing and diving, are enjoyed.
 
While there are still a good number of coves and beaches left unexplored in this Bahamian district as they remain to be under the Exuma National Land and Sea Park protection, you’ll still have the chance to get a nice and relaxing vacation in one of its cays, where upmarket resorts are strategically built.
 
Daily Mail UK Travel celebrity contributor Spencer Matthews particularly spent an all-inclusive vacation in the Great Exuma, specifically at the luxurious Sandals Emerald Bay (“How Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews Found Love at First Sight in the Bahamas”). Below is an excerpt of his unforgettable holiday trip to the Bahamas:
 
 
On those days I discovered the absolute charm of our surroundings. Having spent a lot of time in the Caribbean I have been lucky enough to have lived among white sand beaches and turquoise seas, but nothing can really compare to the seas of Exuma… It was unbelievable, and the water was so shallow and calm, there's no wake whatsoever, which definitely made jet-skiing all the more fun. I went really fast, and close to the shore, too. Swimming with sharks was another thing I'll never forget.
