The Exumas are a collection of 365 islands and cays in the Bahamas. Surrounded by the sapphire-blue waters of the Caribbean, these islands, especially Great Exuma and Little Exuma, are the perfect island getaway. Flying on a private jet to your Exuma vacation is the ultimate way to begin your exotic Caribbean vacation in luxury.

Why Should You Fly to Exuma?

International travel has been restricted by many countries because of the coronavirus. The Bahamas is no exception. Commercial international flights are not allowed to land in order to prevent the spread of the disease. However, the Bahamas does allow private jets to land. This restriction ensures that the Bahamas has a lower risk of COVID-19 infection not only for Bahamians but also for private jet travelers.

What to Do and See on Exuma

Exuma is known for its pristine, gorgeous beaches, perfect for swimming or just for relaxing. The islands are also opportunities for unique experiences that can’t be found elsewhere. Visitors can swim with domesticated pigs that are very friendly to visitors, even swimming out to meet arriving boats to look for food. Exuma is also home to stromatolites that are the world’s oldest fossils. If you’re more the fishing type, Exuma also offers fishing charters and tours for those who don’t have their own boats there.

Where to Stay on Exuma

Exuma offers a range of luxury resorts and spas where visitors can stay. Papaya House is a luxurious, beach-front property located conveniently close to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. It also affords visitors privacy because it’s located across the bridge from Great Exuma and the airport. In addition, there are only four properties on the beach, so visitors can enjoy the tranquility of getting away from it all.

Why You Should Fly on a Private Jet Charter

Currently, the only way to travel to Exuma is on a private jet. In addition, however, there are multitude of benefits to flying on a private jet charter. Private jet travel is faster than commercial air travel because you can avoid waiting in lines at security and waiting at the terminal for your flight. Plus, private jets can fly directly to your destination, eliminating layovers from the itinerary.  In the COVID-19 pandemic, private jets are also the safest way to fly. With safety precautions such as masks, social distancing, and disinfecting the cabin, private jet flyers are less likely to risk coronavirus infection.
