There’s only so much office a person could take. Your career is excellent, but you know you deserve a break, and a break sipping colorful fizzy drinks, with the sand between your toes with a gorgeous sunset over the coast, is one of the best ways to reward yourself.
The Caribbean is magnificent at any time of the year, with a long list of things to see, eat, and do. The Bahamas offers 100,000 square miles of clear blue ocean with a visibility of 200 feet. The water is so crystal clear you can see the ocean floor as if it’s a hands length away from you.
Other than sipping Piña Coladas and chilling under the shade of coconut palms, here are some of the things you should do when you’re in the Bahamas.
- Eat like a local. Bahamian food will surprise you. Expect a lot of varieties of seafood like conch salad and fish fry, fresh as expected, and locally sourced from their waters. However, that is just the start of it. Coconuts, which are abundant in the area, are a common ingredient in kitchen restaurants, from soups to desserts. If you have a sensitive palate, be prepared as dishes here are often well seasoned, and commonly spicy.
- Participate in a festival. Goatskin and steel drums beating a rhythm, elaborate costumes, plumed and colored, and dancers with flamboyant moves dancing on the street is common during all festivals. I recommend you stay for the Junkanoo, a celebration that starts after boxing day and continues into the new year. To date, Junkanoo is the biggest festival in the Bahamas, and you will surely get hyped on people being lively and dancing and singing on the streets.
- Snorkel and Dive. With all the waters surrounding you, it would be a mistake not to dip your toes. Corals surround the Bahamas, and it’s straightforward to rent gear and hire a guide and a boat. Clifton Heritage Park has underwater statues, and if you’re up for it, there is the Blue Holes National Park, which is best known for its limestone and underwater caves. The Bahamas also has the 3rd most extensive coral reef in the world and has a 6000-foot deep ocean trench, better known as the Tongue of the Ocean. Corals, colorful fish, and turtles abode!
- Visit the Abaco Islands. Uninhabited islands welcome you to relax and meditate in isolation. 6 National parks and a lot of hiking trails pique more than plenty of adventurers who love a pleasant walk in the sand and the jungle. Stay for the sunset and prepare to be rendered speechless.
- Learn art and history. Bay Street offers you a charming view of the old architecture of buildings, but if you’re looking for more history, visit The Cloisters, the Queen’s staircase, or Fort Montagu. Nassau also has a National Art Gallery more about their culture and art.
