Ministry of Tourism and Aviation has highlighted record visitor numbers, its partnership with Airbnb and the recovery of Grand Bahama and Abaco after Hurricane Dorian in a recent update.

In the statement, it noted the following tourism-related news:

  • The Bahamas recorded more than seven million visitors in 2019. The Ministry attributes this to data-driven, agile marketing, authentic storytelling, and aggressive PR, sales and airlift strategies.
  • The Bahamas and Airbnb Launch Sabbatical Programme – The Bahamas and Airbnb are encouraging people to apply to a new sabbatical programme to spend eight weeks immersing themselves in the Bahamian way of life. The winners will spend their time helping restore coral reefs in Andros, supporting ethical fishing in Exuma and promoting traditional agriculture in Eleuthera. The Bahamas Sabbatical was designed to directly benefit local communities while supporting efforts toward a sustainable future. Applications close today.
  • The Abacos on the Road to Recovery – Four months after Hurricane Dorian left a devastating impact on the northern islands in The Bahamas, The Abacos are rebounding. Many hotels, ferry services, airlines, tour operators and attractions have resumed business. Marsh Harbour, Central and Northern Abaco and several cays throughout the destination are in the midst of rebuilding, while several businesses are already welcoming guests.
  • Lucayan National Park Reopens – The major tourist attraction on Grand Bahama Island has officially reopened after a temporary closure following Hurricane Dorian. Lucayan National Park saw some slight changes but the park’s cave infrastructure and mangrove system as well as the breathtaking Gold Rock Beach are untouched and ready to be explored.
  • Green Turtle Club Resort and Marina Accepting Reservations – Green Turtle Club Resort and Marina off the coast of The Abacos is now accepting reservations after its closure following Hurricane Dorian.
