The Moss Town area offers
myriad activities to suit any adventurer's palate, and our landing is the perfect
jumping-off point to begin exploring:
The island of Great Exuma
is just one of the 365 islands and cays in the 100-mile Exuma chain, which spans one of
the most remarkable stretches of water within The Islands of The Bahamas. The area was
colonized in 1783 by American Loyalists who wanted to remain true to the British king
after the United States won the American Revolutionary War. They brought to The Exumas
their cotton plantations and African slaves and remnants of those colonial days are still
evident. History buffs will find much to dig into in the historical ruins of the
surrounding old towns.
Nearby Moss Town Creek,
well known to local boaters and fly fishermen, offers an abundant bounty within its
mangroves and surrounding bonefish flats.
There are numerous
deserted cays and sand banks, mostly un-peopled, including fascinating Iguana Cay. This tiny
spot is populated solely by iguanas that may join you to sunbathe, or nap in the cool
shade of a palm tree.
One can swim or wander
undisturbed for miles on powdery-sand beaches.
Other water pursuits,
including deep sea fishing, kayaking and scuba diving, can be arranged nearby.
Nature lovers will enjoy
hiking or birdwatching along the island's nature trails.
