As winter creeps in, are you already dreaming of warm sand and palm trees? Yes? Great! Come spend the holidays with us in The Bahamas! Aside from the obvious draw of comfortable weather and pink sand beaches, we’ve got 6 more reasons to catch a flight to Nassau to celebrate the end of 2017 in style.
1. Fast and Convenient Travel
Travel during the holidays can be crazy, but with the direct flight options from major centers in the USA, Canada, Europe and Central America, getting to your happy place can be less of a headache than travelling to destinations within your own country! Land less than 15 minutes away from the heart of Nassau and jump straight into everything The Bahamas has to offer over the holidays.

2. The Vibrant Junkanoo Parade
The Bahamas’ famous Junkanoo Festival has become a big draw for visitors from around the world. Held annually in Nassau on December 26 and January 1, this colourful parade features fabulous costumes, music and dancing. A Bahamas tradition celebrating the history and culture of the islands, this is a holiday activity that’s definitely worth experiencing.
