Bahamas Out Islands
Out Islands - Interactive Maps - FREE Travel tips
The out islands are removed from the main islands that include the cities of Nassau and Freeport. Here the population is much less and the people have learned to exist without much of the world looking on, yet each of the Out Islands is beautiful in nature and scenery and tourism plays a very strong role - Excellent beaches are on each of Abaco, Eleuthra, Exuma and Long Island & The laid back life is quite different when compared to North American standards

Short plane ride from Fort Lauderdale to the main island allowed one to see some
great Abaco beaches
as well as the
Abaco Beach Resort
. Ferry ride to
on Elbow Cay and several nights at the
where some fantastic
sunrises and sunsets
views took place.
After hitching a ride on a cessna flight and gliding in to Eleuthra, took another smaller ferry boat to Harbour Island where the
Pink Sand Beach
overwhelmed me. Several good resorts like the
Runaway Hill Club
Romora Bay Club
are available, however the quantity of rooms is limited. I stayed at Ruby's close to the beach, and had some great meals and a hamburger made in heaven. Back to the main island of Eleuthra, to the
Cove at Eleuthra
had such great scenery.
3. LONG ISLAND:
Had to fly back to Nassau to get to Long Island but cost of flights were reasonable. Stayed at the
Stella Maris Resort
, visiting where
originally landed, saw
and beaches that were superb and
the entire length of the island.
A very fitting stop at
Regatta Point Lodge
for the last island on this tour after the plane ride from Long Island.
nearby was both accessed by a ferry boat and a rented 14 foot skiff. There were some great beaches as well as a small restaurant with great hamburgers.
the entire length of the island again, and was treated to terrific scenery, as well as the then newly being developed casino,
Emerald Bay Resort
. Last night on this journey, was sitting back, drink in hand, watching a great
Sunset over Georgetown
Now for my perspective! "The real Bahamas are in the Out-Islands". Our Video Clips prove it.
