Getting to the Bahamas
As you can see, all-inclusive Bahamas hotels abound in this vacationer’s paradise. But first, you must fly through the sky with daydreams of pristine beaches and tropical beverages dancing in your head. That’s easy to do—this little atoll has multiple international airports as well as many more for each individual island. Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in the capital of Nassau is a popular choice—and the closest landing strip to Atlantis Paradise Island—while Grand Bahama International Airport (FPO) will situate you in the northern islands.
What to Know When You Land
Transportation: If you’re seeking adventures beyond your resort, rental cars can be a good way to get around the Bahamas, especially New Providence Island (which includes Nassau) and Grand Bahama Island. You’ll find the rules of the road similar to the U.S., with one major difference: they drive on the left! Rental cars can be hard to come by on the smaller, outer islands, but you can rely on taxis or your own two feet. And if you plan to lay on the beach all day, every day, and maybe venture into town for a meal or two, taxis are also your best option.
Currency and Language: If you are coming from the U.S., you will feel right at home. No need to exchange your money—U.S. dollars are accepted throughout the islands. However, you will need a passport to enter, as well as proof of your return home, such as a departing plane ticket. English is the official language, with a little tropical flair.
Food and Drink: Good news—tips are included! Restaurants add 15% gratuity automatically, but of course, you can always leave more if the service was great. It most likely will be in this tourist haven. So what will they be serving? Only the freshest seafood ever to delight your senses. Lobster, crab, and fish abound, accompanied by medleys of fruit, rice, and potatoes that will tantalize your taste buds.
In a word: perfect! Temperatures hover between approximately 70 and 85 degrees year-round, with warmer, more humid summers. November to May sees low rainfall and average temperatures around 75 degrees; these months are also the high season, as visitors flock to the islands to enjoy warm breezes and escape colder climes. In the summer, you may find slightly lower rates, and there will still be plenty of sunshine.
Top 3 Things to Do in the Bahamas
1. Atlantis Paradise Island (2.5 miles from British Colonial Hilton Nassau)
This wonderful world is enchanting for children and adults alike. Slip and slide around the huge water park, befriend more than 15,000 animals in the marine habitats, or dive with sharks! (Yes, that last one is for the truly adventurous.) This resort has to be seen to be believed.
2. Junkanoo Beach (3 miles from Breezes Resort Bahamas)
This spot, which is right near the heart of Nassau, is everything you think of when you picture the quintessential Bahamas beach. Sip pina coladas in the shade of the Tiki bar or stretch out on a beach lounger and soak up the sun. Take a dip in the crystal clear waters, and be sure to buy some local art or jewelry before your perfect Bahamian day ends.
3. Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre (5 miles from Meliá Nassau Beach)
Need to get your tennis or golf practice for the day? Or just want to kick back and watch other people exercise? Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre is your place. It has a nine-hole golf course, six tennis courts, an Olympic pool, hot rod racing track, and more. Plus, the annual Carnival takes place here, so you’ll definitely want to put this on your list if you’re visiting November to January.
If you desire a tropical getaway with all the conveniences of home, you’ll find it just off the coast of Miami and Palm Beach.
