But good news folks – on December 19th, 2014, you will be able to fly directly to Grand Bahama Island with Sunwing!
There is plenty of things to do if you’re into water sports – snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, kayaking, parasailing and boating. If you’re looking to relax and take in the local culture – which is my favourite thing to do on vacation – Grand Bahama Island has a marketplace located right on the waterfront so you can peruse shops and enjoy the views at the same time. There is also the Heritage Trail which is an easy five-mile nature walk, Lucayan National Park and Rand Nature Centre.
Currency wise, the Bahamian dollar is on par with the US dollar. English is the native tongue, so you need not worry about any misunderstandings when travelling to Grand Bahama Island!
I plugged in a couple of dates in February on the Sunwing website and it looks like it’ll cost $700 and up to fly directly, with hotel and transfers (not including the $385 taxes). Not bad considering some resorts are all inclusive!
