Just West of George Town, The Fish Fry is a collection of little restaurants that cook up some of the best food on the island.  

The Fish Fry is low key, authentic and memorable.  It is as much for locals as for tourists and is central to the Exuma experience.

There are more than ten little restaurants serving fresh grilled and fried seafood, meats and other tasty Bahamian dishes.   Charlie's does a great take way pizza.

A few are open for breakfast and lunch.   Most get...

In George Town near the main dock and Regatta Point is Kidd Cove.    

In the 1700s, pirates roamed the Caribbean.  Nassau was the main trading market, but most pirates had a safe harbour where they could rest up, repair ships and maybe bury a little treasure. Kidd Harbour had the natural shelter of Stocking Island and was reportedly Captain Kidd's favourite haunt.   The hill overlooking the harbour where the church now stands is called Kidd Hill.   He may well have had look out...

What is happening this week in Exuma?

You can get a weekly calendar, which is put out on Mondays, at the Tourist Office (above the Royal Bank in...

St. Andrew's Church is on Kidd Hill in Georgetown, overlooking Stocking Island and Kidd Harbour at the front and with views of saltwater Lake Victoria behind it.  This whitewashed Anglican Church was built in 1802. It fell into decay and was rebuilt in 1860 and again in 1885.    Apparently, Churches and pirates don't mix that well. 

 

It makes a great venue for a wedding but there are many other churches on Great and Little Exuma.   And if a beach wedding is your prefe...

Georgetown is the capital of the district of Exuma. It is built around a Main Street that circles Lake Victoria and has a number of restaurants, hotels and other services.    There are a couple of well stocked, if small, grocery stores, a hardware store, several liquor stores, a gas station, 24 hour ATMs and several government offices including the tourist office.   Ferries and water taxis leave from the main dock.  Boat rentals are available at Minn's.
