MORE TO BAHAMAS THAN BEACHES – SAYS MARINA ASSOCIATION

Image by Syd Sujuaan

NASSAU, The Bahamas, 14 March, 2017……..The Association of Bahamas Marinas has set out to position marinas as more than amenities appended to hotels for the convenience of guests who may own a boat. Instead, the ABM asserts, marinas in The Bahamas should be recognised for what they are collectively: a vital facet of the country’s tourism product that gives The Bahamas an edge on many competing island destinations.

“The fabulous beaches of The Bahamas are just one feature of the many points of interaction that are possible between a visitor and the glorious waters that surround our islands,” said Stephen Kappeler, ABM president. “The nation’s maritime tradition, geographic features and location have helped to provide opportunities for us to develop a network of world-class marinas that attracts boaters and yachtsmen from nearby Florida and all the way up the Eastern Seaboard of the USA.”

On the other hand, if one’s destination demands are more for heavy duty nightlife, casinos and sumptuous dining one would head for New Providence in the central Bahamas, site of the capital Nassau and Paradise Island.

 

The depth of water in areas of the archipelago dictate what can reach where. Pretty much all water craft can access Marsh Harbour and Hope Town in the Abacos, Port Lucaya on Grand Bahama, Nassau and George Town in the Exumas; while sailboats head for points in the Abacos, Long Island, the Exumas, Great Guana Cay and Eleuthera.

The ABM’s 31 marinas are located at points throughout The Bahamas. They are:
