Although, Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas, New Providence, is not the most beautiful island the Bahamas has to offer.
Many Bahamians have reminded me of this several times, as they have strongly recommended to me to visit neighboring islands such as the Exumas and Harbour Island, only to name a few. When people inquire about life in the Bahamas I point out to them that although my island is beautiful, but the other islands offer way more beauty and should not be missed.
So just like when you travel to Hawaii, when you come to the Bahamas please visit the other islands. Some of them are a very short plane ride away. I myself had the pleasure of visiting Andros Island about a month ago and was able to spend the day at the Kamalame Resort.
Even as a born and raised Bahamian, I find myself in utter shock and awe when I visit The Family Islands. Even as a Bahamian, the eye popping blues of the sea, the angelic whites of the powdery sands, the calming warmth of the island breeze take my breath away. -Ianthia Smith
