Place: Exuma
Celebrity Spotting in Great Exuma

By Fred Coolridge

Whatís a guy to do?

It seems that playing a pirate in the Caribbean just wasnít enough for Johnny Depp. He had to go and buy a whole island in the Caribbean! And rumor has it that when he informed his wife Vanessa Paradis that he had bought her an island in the Exumas, Bahamas, her response was: What do we need an island for? Poor Johnny!

I guess nobody really needs to own an island but if you were Johnny Depp (or Justin Timberlake, another celebrity recently spotted in the Exumas) and you could afford a small piece of paradise on earth, then there is no better place in the world to start looking than the Exumas. Johnny Depp and Justin Timberlake arenít the only celebrities who seem to think so. Other celebrities who have recently been spotted island hopping or island hunting in the Exumas include: Demi Moore, Tom Cruise, Adam Sandler, Bill Gates and Madonna.

Why Exuma?

The Exumas are a string of islands stretching through the Southern Bahamas. Great Exuma is the largest of these islands and its greatest appeal is its relative lack of tourists and commercialization. This factor makes the island attractive to many celebrities who live a major part of their lives in the spotlight. The island also offers some of the best sailing in the world, great fishing, spectacular beaches, luxury hotels, gourmet dining and friendly, down to earth locals. Many magnificent coral reefs are located in this part of the world making snorkeling and scuba diving an incredible experience as well.

If you are a keen star gazer, you might want to set your sights on a trip to the Exumas because even if you donít spot any celebrities, youíre highly unlikely to return home from this amazing tropical paradise disappointed.
