There is nothing better than taking a break from the cold weather and grey scenery that epitomizes winter here in the Northeast. Warm white sand, glistening blue water and the relaxing sounds of palm trees moving in the ocean breeze is what inspires me to travel to a tropical destination, each and every year!
I recently chose the Bahamas for my annual getaway, and this time traveled with my three best girlfriends. This vacation was nothing short of fantastic.
I was so impressed with all that the Bahamas had to offer. We spent most of our time on the spectacular white sand beaches. The water was a beautiful shade of turquoise and the waves were the perfect height for jumping and swimming.
In the middle of each day, we’d take a break from the sun to eat lunch. Food is one of my passions, and I absolutely savored ordering the grouper – it was so fresh, I could tell it just came off of the boat! Before heading back to the beach, we made a pit stop at The Daiquiri Shack, where they had fresh fruit frozen daiquiris with over 20 flavors to choose from! It’s centrally located near Cable Beach and right near the straw market, a great place to find crafts, jewelry, t-shirts and more.
But that’s not all. What made this island truly unique was that you could relax all day long, and at nightfall, enjoy an exhilarating night out, full of dancing and music, all on the beach. If dancing is not your thing, you can also enjoy the many Vegas-style casinos.
