Few island getaways are more idyllic than George Town, a small settlement on the east coast of the Bahamian island of Exuma.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Tue): enjoy the sand and surf at Beaches of Stocking Island, stroll through Hooper's Bay Beach, and then stroll through Coco Plum Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 1st (Wed): pick up some local products at Exuma Markets, enjoy the sand and surf at Tropic of Cancer Beach, stroll the grounds of Rolle Town Tombs, then pause for some serene contemplation at St. Andrew's Anglican Church, and finally explore the striking landscape at Exuma Wall.

Eleuthera

Eleuthera ©
The long, thin island of Eleuthera has plenty of coast, built up in places and left wild and rural in others.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dunmore Town and Gaulding's Cay. Step out of Eleuthera with an excursion to Pink Sands Beach in Harbour Island--about 1h 05 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape of Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve, enjoy the sand and surf at Twin Cove Beach, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, and explore the fascinating underground world of Spider Cave.

To see ratings, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Eleuthera day trip planner.

You can fly from George Town to Eleuthera in 3 hours. Another option is to ride a ferry. On the 6th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
