Bahamas Tourism on the Rise

Bahamas Tourism on the Rise Bahamas Tourism on the Rise

“It’s Better in the Bahamas.”  You’ve probably heard this over the years and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation is doing more to bring in more visitors and it’s working.

In a Nutshell: Tourism is on the rise in the Bahamas and they’ve shown a 10.2% increase with much of it from the U.S., and an increase of over 29% from Canada.  They’ve implemented new tracking tools to monitor increasing arrivals, resorts are showing high occupancy levels, and they anticipate a steady growth moving forward. I think we’ll all be seeing more advertising to return to the Bahamas. Reports show that this turnaround in tourism began just under a year ago so this growth is good news for the Islands of the Bahamas.

More about the Bahamas:

Did you know that the Bahamas, located about 50-miles off the coast of Florida, is comprised of 700 islands?  And, there are over 2,000 rocks and cays, they claim to have the clearest water on the planet, and you can dive and snorkel at Andros Barrier Reef, the world’s third largest barrier reef.

The Bahamas is also home to about ten all-inclusive resorts including Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort and Melia Nassau Beach.

From where I’m sitting, it is better in the Bahamas!
