February Point Resort Coupons and Deals
Spacious Waterfront Villas on Private Island Retreat Set on an 80-acre Bahamian peninsula on Great Exuma island, the secluded February Point Resort offers nearly 360 degrees of ocean views, as well as access dozens of tiny cays, hidden coves, and virgin beaches. The hotel overlooks Elizabeth Harbor, known for its calm and sheltered waters and full-service marina. A row of stately, pastel-colored villas lines the harbor, each equipped with a full kitchen, dining room, and spacious living area with a TV. Most are trimmed with white wraparound porches that offer bay views. White-sand paths lead from the villas down to the beach. If you’re hoping for a salt-free dip, take a dip in the resort's infinity-edge pool. From its perch alongside the ocean, the Bamboo Bistro serves upscale island fare such as sherry-infused conch chowder and lobster and blue-crab ravioli. As far as activities go, guests can also play a tennis match at the onsite club, tee off at the nearby Golf Club at Emerald Bay, or go on a scuba diving excursion off the shores of Great Exuma. Great Exuma Island, Bahamas: Quiet Caribbean Island Rich with Aquatic Adventure Located 35 miles south of Nassau, the Exumas are an archipelago composed of 365 cays and islands. The two main isles, Great Exuma and Little Exuma, are known as laid-back tropical paradises, and the surrounding cays attract the rich and famous—celebs including Johnny Depp, Nicolas Cage, and David Copperfield have homes in the area. Just north of Staniel Cay, at a beach called Big Major Spot, you can catch a glimpse of the Exumas’ famous swimming pigs. When a boat pulls into the bay, the animals saunter out of the bushes and swim out to the boaters, expecting to be fed. Snorkelers and divers flock to Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park, a protected area known for its abundant marine life and coral reefs. Pirate’s Lair, located on the southwest end of the island, features sand banks lined with ancient stromatolites—some of the oldest known macrofossils on earth. A web of historical trails also wends through the park preserve; one side path deposits hikers at the ruins of a former plantation owned by Spanish loyalists. Back on Great Exuma, Georgetown is just one mile from the hotel. The Tropic of Cancer runs through this quiet seaport, which is well known for its landmark pink-and-white government building and vibrant fruit markets. The city center is lined with grocery stores, an outdoor straw market, and gift shops purveying Androsia batiks and original serigraphs.
