Living in Nassau, The Bahamas for 33 years has given us the chance to see the real beauty of The Bahamas, which is the family islands. They are smaller, friendly, each is unique in its own right. The Exuma's are second to none in our book. After traveling around to most of the Family Islands, we kept coming back to Exuma. We knew it was where we wanted to be.The color of the water changes from turquoise, to sapphire, and to indigo all at the same time. The sand bars where you can walk out forever up to your ankles at low tide, collecting sand dollars, are truly enchanting, and the sea life ( turtles, lobster, conch, and tropical fish) is just beautiful. No wonder the astronaut Scott Kelly said, when looking down on Exuma, that it was "the most beautiful place from space", and "The Bahamas never fails to impress", because it is indeed truly spectacular!
