Luxury holidays in Bahamas
When to go
During rainy season, from mid-August to October, the towns and hotel properties slow and often shutter.
PlanesNassau's pleasing-to-say Lynden Pindling airport (www.nas.bs) is the gateway hub for most Bahamas destinations. From there, you'll have to complete your journey by car, boat or seaplane. Most hotels will arrange transfers for you, especially for remote locations. Alternatively, there are also many charter companies — including Air Flight (www.airflightcharters.com) — which offer flights from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami to larger islands in the Bahamas.
BoatsSeveral ferries (www.bahamasferries.com) travel between Nassau and many smaller islands. It is also possible to charter boats from Florida for a two-hour ride to the islands. Plenty of mariners pilot yachts throughout the islands. Even the smallest destinations typically offer a marina for seafaring guests.
AutomobilesMost island resorts, including Kamalame Cay, rely on golf carts to shuttle passengers around.
TaxisThe best way to book a taxi on most islands is through your hotel, though a small fleet usually awaits arriving visitors at various harbours each day. Nassau and Grand Bahama Island have a large fleet of taxis, though the rides can be expensive.
