Revenge travel is sweeter this time around in The Bahamas, home to 700 islets, cays, and islands. As the pandemic restriction lessens, the islands of The Bahamas are again opening their doors to tourists. There is something for everyone from families and couples to solo or group travelers.
- The Bahamas is recognized as a top vacation destination. Nominated in numerous World Travel Awards, The Bahamas is globally recognized as one of the “Best Family Spring Break Destinations” recognizing the Bahamas’ sandy beaches, scenic sites, and family-friendly resorts.
- Grammy-nominated rapper at Resorts World Bimini. Rapper Iggy Azalea headlines the weekend part from April 15 to 17 at Resorts World Bimini. Avail tickets and packages for as low as $598/person. The package includes a two-night resort stay, concert admission, and round-trip tickets from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
- The restored Angel Fish Creek Bridge is now open. In 2019, Hurricane Dorian destroyed The Bahamas’ longest single-span bridge but the communities of Little Abaco and Great Abaco showed resilience and initiative. As such, the newly named Angel Fish Creek Bridge returns to its former glory with its completed restoration.
- A new distillery begins production in The Bahamas. Experience and enjoy a different taste to your distillery needs and wants with Freeport’s Bahamas Distilling Company with coconut- and raspberry-flavored rums and other spirits.
- Cruises are coming on strong. The Bahamas’ proximity to Miami makes it attractive for quick, short cruises. Most of the major cruise lines, including the new “Margaritaville” line visit the Bahamas, some as a port of call and for some as THE port of call.
- Swimming with animals is the latest craze — whether dolphins and turtles or sharks, swimming with pigs at Big Major Cay or simply watching flamingos at a number of beaches.
Bahamian cuisine is a mix of West African, European, and American, and, as you might expect, features lots of seafood dishes. Cracked conch with peas and rice is the national dish.
