If you are considering a vacation to the Bahamas, so far we have one covered for you, Great Exuma. There are over 700 islands and inlets, and even more (over 2000 more) cays to choose from. With that being said, roughly only about 30 of the islands and cays are inhabited, and we plan on hitting ALL of them 👍
If you are potentially planning a Destination Wedding, I would strongly urge you to consider the Bahamas. And more specifically with Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma Bahamas. In this travel blog, I am going to break down our destination wedding cost, the pros & cons of a destination wedding and much more!

Trust us, the higher coverage, the better... especially in the Bahamas!!
Sun Bum has the BEST smell, does NOT give you that 'burning' sensation, water resistant up to 80 minutes and most importantly, OCEAN & REEF FRIENDLY! Before leaving Exuma, we noticed a deeper tan with the higher SPF coverage vs the lower!
Not sure if its just a me thing, but somehow, something ALWAYS happens to the ONE pair of sunglasses that I bring... and then I end up buying a pair that I don't really like that much... tell me I'm not alone here that this happens too?! Don't let your accessories make your vacation to the Bahamas, a negative one!
Call me a germaphobe, but the idea of utilizing a snorkel set from the resort, that multiple other people have used... nah, I'm good! This one can get tight enough for my small head and larger enough for our son's (bigger) head & of course these water fins that are the perfect size for your carry on!
When you get to Exuma, exploring the Island is not NOT an option.... it's a must! And yes, you will want a small bag to throw all these items into, plus some waters and snacks! In all honesty, this was a BIG win on our Bahamas trip and we will forever pack an additional small bag on future vacations!
Do NOT leave home without this! Yes, Exuma will have chapstick, but they may not have SPF specifically. The sun gets hot and since most of the time you will be either in the sun or salty ocean, you will want to keep your lips from getting fried and dried out! Once again Sun Bum SPF 30 is one of our favorites!
We each only brought one of these, but now we know we should have brought at least 3 of these guys on this Bahamas trip! Living in Florida, we are out on the ocean & beach as much a possible and because of that, we now incorporate these SPF/UPF Shirts every vacation and beach trip that we go on. Nate & Blake's SPF preference (men's), and my SPF preference (woman's)
I know this sounds like an odd one, but this was the BEST random item that we brought with us. Since this Bahamas trip was on our bucket-list and it's where we tied the knot, we wanted to take a piece of Exuma home with us. So we brought a small little zip lock baggie of the Bahamas sand back home with us, and put it in a vase with a picture of us standing above it😍
These are also good to put wet swim suits/shorts in, if you decide on a last minute dip in the ocean before you go back home!
I can't tell you how many times this portable solar charger has been a HUGE life saver, especially because we are NOT always conveniently sitting next to a electrical outlet. 'I want to stay inside for an hour to charge my phone, while on vacation in Exuma'... SAID NO ONE EVER! And this one is pretty rugged, so if it gets a little wet or dusty because you are out exploring, no big deal!
Whether you're interested in a Cruise, guided tour, group trip, independent international travel or just a weekend get-away, and even that bucket list adventure... we can assist you with that!
