     Local residents of Exuma celebrate the Holidays in a big way, with an emphasis on extended family gatherings. Christmas trees are decorated with twinkling lights and sparkling tinsel, and families exchange gifts by picking a name from a basket. On Christmas Day, it‘s all about turkey, macaroni with cheese, fiddle green salad, a variety of homemade breads - including Caribbean Johnny Cake - and coconut tarts for dessert. Sky Juice, a traditional mixture of coconut water, gin and sweet milk, accompanies every holiday meal. And after a long day of celebrating, the festivities continue for Boxing Day on December 26th, where people gather at local clubs to welcome in Junkanoo, a Bahamian festival like Carnival or Mardi Gras.

At Grand Isle, guests can join in on our Exuma Christmas spirit with a holiday tree decorated with ornaments that have been hand-crafted by staffers, and Bahamian versions of familiar carols. A colorful regatta of visiting sail boats and luxury yachts will also please onlookers who stay over for the New Year celebration.
