Experience Great Exuma, Bahamas, Like Ben Higgins on 'The Bachelor'
Turquoise water, warm weather, white sand beaches, and relaxation galore. It’s not Paradise — it’s Great Exuma in the Bahamas!
Great Exuma is one of 37 cays in Exuma and isn’t too far from the Bahamian capital of Nassau. Much like other parts of the country, Great Exuma boasts stunning coastline, fresh seafood, and adventurous watersports. It also happens to be an ideal locale for couples to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and bask in the sun and waves. Much like the temperatures here most of the year, your relationship will surely heat up during a trip to Great Exuma!
Ben Higgins traveled to Great Exuma on Season 20 of “The Bachelor,” and here’s how you can experience it just like Ben and the ladies!
For an all-encompassing Great Exuma experience, look no further than Grand Isle Resort & Spa. The resort is situated right on the water, but if you don’t feel like getting sandy, you can relax by the pool with a view of the ocean. Grand Isle Resort & Spa also offers watersports, spa services, boat trips, and more.
Once you’ve settled in, put on your best bathing suit and get exploring!
One-on-One Date: My Love Is Reel
With the water all around you, you and your date must spend the day on the sea! Charter a boat and surround yourself with the marine life by deep-sea fishing with your love. Perhaps you’ll catch some fish and more feelings for each other! If you need a break from all the fishing, don’t hesitate to relax on the boat and spend more one-on-one quality time together.
Once you’re back on land, have a romantic dinner for two at one of Grand Isle’s many restaurant options. You might even get to eat with your toes in the sand! If the night calls for it, you can have your own mini rose ceremony with just the two of you.
Group Date: Pigging Out
