The Exuma Cays (Islands) stretch from about 35 miles Southeast of Nassau, Bahamas for over 100 miles, in a long chain that encompasses 365 tropical islands, one for each day of the year! Manned space craft from Cape Kennedy regularly follow the chain on takeoff, eliciting the following description from one astronaut. "They appear below me, like a Golden Chain on an Emerald sea".
These Out-Islands (Bahamians like to call the The Family Islands) are a much appreciated relief from the glitz, glamour, and business of Nasau and Grand Bahama. Here the natural element is the attraction- the remoteness and beauty of the hundreds of perfect beaches, the abundant marine life, and the clarity of the turquoise waters. This is ANOTHER WORLD in itself. The people are ever so friendly and helpful: the atmosphere lay back and casual, the surroundings breathtaking!
