If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll already know that I recently went on a trip. I mean how could I not capture the beauty that was The Bahamas. I spent just about a week in Paradise. Literally and figuratively speaking.
I know I’m a bit late but I thought I’d share some photos and talk a bit about my time on Paradise Island. Let’s dive right into it!
First things first, food. As a Vegan, you’re always a bit uncertain about where you can eat and which places provide Vegan options. I usually plan ahead but this time around, I didn’t. Surprisingly however, there were actually some pretty good options for me to choose from.
My favorites were the vegetarian pizza (no cheese) from Anthony’s seafood & ribs (It was so good that I had to get it twice) and a vegetable wrap from the hotel’s restaurant. The other meals I had were pretty basic in comparison. I ended up eating a lot of fries, veggies and the local dish of peas and rice.
I stayed at Comfort Suites, Paradise Island. I had a great experience, no complaints. A major plus to staying at this hotel was free access to Atlantis for the duration of my stay. I also booked my tours via the hotel.
Sun, sand & sea
Now let’s get into fun part of things. I was most excited to lay out in the sun, reading a book while getting a tan. And I did just that on several breathtaking, white sand beaches with crystal clear water.
Every beach that I went to was absolutely stunning but I’d have to say my favorite was the beach on Blue Lagoon Island. Absolutely stunning. The short boat ride and bit of motion sickness was certainly worth it.
Culture & the people
The warmth and friendliness of the Bahamians made my stay all the better. From the tour guides to the taxi drivers, not a bad encounter was to be had.
The day I spent exploring the city of Nassau was easily one of my favorites. As much as I love the beach and laying out in the sun without a care in the world, I always seek a bit more. I loved walking the streets of the city, hat on head, camera in hand, appreciating the architecture. And of course, taking a million and one photos.
I also had the opportunity to learn a bit about the history of The Bahamas and its people. I did a tour of Clifton Heritage Park where I got to see the ruins and learn a bit more about plantation life. I also visited the Pompey Museum of Slavery and Emancipation where I learned more about the island’s rich history.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and I think it’s safe to say that I will be back. Next time I definitely have to visit the island of Exuma and spend a day with the pigs!
Next stop: Miami, Florida
