Nassau and Paradise Island – This pair of islands, which are home to the country’s most extensive array of resorts, hotels, restaurants and tour operators, were not affected by Hurricane Dorian and are operating normally. With seasonal hotel incentives and increased airlift, it is easier than ever for travelers to visit this year.
The Out Islands – The Out Islands are open and operating, with the exception of The Abacos which is still recovering. Some resorts and lodges take a fall hiatus for annual leave or renewal projects, but there are many options for accommodations. Airports, government ports and marinas are open across the islands.
Grand Bahama Island – Grand Bahama Island is back to its business of welcoming travelers at its cruise port, will soon welcome international travelers when the airport reopens.
