The Exumas: The string of Bahamian islands (some uninhabited) that boast secluded beaches and tranquil aquamarine cays, miles away from the bustling resorts and cruise ships of Nassau.

"The water here is some of the prettiest in the world, and comes in every shade of blue and green (you'll grow tired trying to name the exact color); beaches are dazzling white," says Fodor's. "Combine that with fresh seafood and friendly locals and you have yourself one of the best vacation destinations in the Bahamas."

Located on the 37-mile-long Great Exuma, the Exuma Palms Hotel has prime real estate on Three Sisters Beach. Escape for a four- ($340) or six-night ($480) stay in an oceanfront room between now and November 20, 2012, or a four- ($420) or six-night ($600) stay between December 1, 2012 and October 29, 2013. The hotel handles round-trip transportation from the airport.

Look out over the turquoise water from your balcony or patio in a room that also features amenities like A/C and a ceiling fan, a flat-screen TV with cable, a microwave, a mini fridge, and a coffee machine. In the morning, find an authentic Bahamian breakfast of grits and sheep's tongue souse or more American fare like pancakes and poached eggs at the hotel's restaurant. And return later for lunch (Escapees each have an included entrée and drink) to indulge in roasted snapper, conch linguini, or a grilled grouper sandwich.

Between meals, head to Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park—the first land-and-sea preserve in the world (established in 1959) and a mecca for snorkelers and scuba divers. Or, do as so many others do and get on a boat.

"The sailing rivals that of the Grenadines and the Abacos," says Frommer's. "If you don't come in your own craft, you can rent one here, from a simple little daysailer to a fishing runabout, with or without a guide."

The next day, pick up a Bahamian straw bag or hat at the Straw Market in George Town before exploring Thunderball Grotto, the underwater cave famous for its appearance in so many popular films. Later, sink your toes into the white sand and enjoy being on island time.

  • "The location and service are top-notch. The view of Three Sisters Beach is simply breathtaking and makes you realize why you came to Exuma—for the pure and stunning beauty."
