The Exumas are roughly in the centre of the Bahamas and consist mainly of over 350 small cays. The exceptions are Great and Little Exuma, which are joined by a single-lane bridge. Approximately 6,000 people live in the whole of the Exumas, 800 of whom are in George Town – a port of entry and a good place to stock up for voyages south. Thanks to its beautiful crystal clear waters and wonderful reefs to explore, the Exumas are exceptional yachting and cruising grounds. Local events include the George Town Cruising Regatta in mid-March for visiting boats and the Family Island Regatta for Bahamian sloops in late April.
