How to Take an Extended Vacation in Grand Bahama

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 7, 2021

The Bahamas recently launched its BEATS, or Bahamas Extended Access Travel Stay, which allows visitors to live and work remotely in the country for up to a year. 

And now a host of properties in Grand Bahama have launched special programs, both for BEATS visa holders and those looking to take longer vacations on the island. 

That includes the Taino Beach Resort, which is offering half off room rates for visitors who spend more than 20 days at the property.

And the Paradise Cove resort, a collection of one and two-bedroom beachfront villas, is launching monthly and quarterly rates at significant savings. 

Grand Bahama’s Flamingo Bay Hotel & Marina, which has 64 rooms on the marina near downtown Freeport, is also launching a monthly stay program. 

“.After what has been a challenging year, an extended winter escape to a sun, sea and cultural destination is undoubtedly an appealing way to welcome in a new year and new opportunities,” Grand Bahama Island’s tourism board said in a statement. “Due to its proximity to mainland USA, convenient travel connections, beautiful climate, and variety of land and sea attractions, Grand Bahama possesses all the hallmarks of that special getaway location. Also, as more people are working remotely, it presents a special opportunity for visitors to extend their stays and work from home in a tropical paradise.”
