Jul 12, 2017
These land-based activities are free, fabulous and easy-breezy
Many travelers who visit The Bahamas crave a vacation that delivers peace and quiet and super relaxation. The Out Islands of The Bahamas are remote getaways far from the busy capital of Nassau and they are naturally positioned to deliver easy breezy fun. With nature as the primary playground, many activities also happen to be free.
The Out Islands are made of up many little settlements and small cays. Taking a leisurely bike ride to explore these communities is one way to experience peace and relaxation on a Bahamas vacation. Mangrove Cay in Andros; Arthur’s Town in Cat Island; Staniel Cay in the Exumas; Deadman’s Cay in Long Island; Green Turtle Cay in the Abacos, and Dunmore Town in Harbour Island are great settlements to bike around. Many resorts provide bicycles for their guests, so make an inquiry before you book if bike riding sounds like easy breezy fun.
Sunrise and Sunset Walks
It is seriously worth your while to wake up at daybreak to catch a Bahamian sunrise. Unlike in high altitude countries, where the sun rises above the ridge of a mountain range, the sun is born from the sea in the Out Islands. In the mornings, the sea is still and the air breezing across the land is cool. It costs nothing to move your body in the morning and walk the beach at sunrise. The birds awaken in song at this time and the sand - groomed overnight by the undisturbed waves - receives its first footprints. Beaches wrap around all sides of the islands so there are many westward facing options; in the evenings, these beaches are open for romance.
