Located just an hour and a half from the North American eastern coast is the district known as Exuma in The Bahamas. The chain of islands that make up the district are the perfect getaway for those who want a secluded, peaceful but active beach holiday. An Exuma holiday offers the chance to relax in beautiful surroundings whilst being as far away from the mass of tourists as possible. An Exuma holiday rental house not only offers excellent sea views, it also provides all of the comforts that you would expect from a first-class hotel.
As you would expect on a trip to The Bahamas, an Exuma holiday combines the best of both worlds. Visitors can choose to simply relax and de-stress in beautiful surroundings, or fill their days with a range of exciting activities. Amongst the activities available on the doorstep of an Exuma holiday rental house are swimming, kayaking, sailing, diving, fishing, windsurfing and water skiing. Other activities available in the district are golf, tennis, paragliding, cycling, walking and horse riding.
There are many natural, beautiful places worth venturing out from your comfortable Exuma holiday rental house to see but there are some historical attractions worth visiting too. This includes The Hermitage Plantation ruins at Williams Town. The cotton industry was huge throughout The Bahamas in the 17th and 18th centuries and there are many plantation buildings scattered around the islands. The Hermitage Plantation ruins are set in 970 acres and have remains of a kitchen, a slave house, grave crypts and tombs of the owners. One of the tombs is unmarked and is believed to belong to an unfortunate, unnamed slave.
No matter what time of year you want to book a wonderful Exuma holiday rental house, you will be able to enjoy some fantastically warm weather.
