Join us next year over National Heroes weekend & lets all Run for Pompey! #BeAHero #RunForPompey
Gov. throws weight behind Pompey. The Bahamian government threw its weight behind the third annual Run for Pompey during an official press conference in the nation’s capital. The new Minister of Tourism and Aviation, Dionisio D’Aguilar, declared Exuma “the most beautiful place in the world” and told the press core that Run for Pompey “ticks all the boxes” of a worthwhile event in The Bahamas. The annual race, held on Great Exuma from October 6 to October 9, is not only an authentic celebration of local history and culture, but an important driver of sports tourism in the area.
Come & live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
The Exuma’s 365 Cays are the most exotic of the Bahamas Out Islands. A collection of tiny jewel-like islands set in the most beautiful mosaic of blues you’ve ever seen. World-renowned for its magnificent coral reefs, colorful sea life, and powdery white-sand beaches, Great Exuma has always been the best kept secret of savvy tropical vacationers.
