Tourist-dependent Bahamas still open for business


The Bahamas was on track for a record year of tourism before Hurricane Dorian hit. Now, the outlook for that vital sector is uncertain.

Some of the best-known resorts in the 700-island chain, like Atlantis, Paradise Island, were unscathed by the monster storm. So was Nassau, the largest city.

But 100 miles away, on Grand Bahama Island and the Abaco islands, many smaller hotels and vacation rentals were damaged or destroyed. That leaves the Bahamas with a double challenge: convincing tourists to keep coming without trivializing the suffering on the affected islands.

"All of the donations are welcome, but they can also, very much, assist us by still visiting the islands of the Bahamas in the unaffected areas. They are open for business," said Ellison Thompson, the deputy director general of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation.

Tourism industry, celebrities offer aid after Hurricane Dorian Aftermath


The tourism industry, perhaps unsurprisingly, has been quite proactive with Dorian relief activities.

Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International, is working with its international and local Bahamian ground partners, including The Bahamas National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Bahamas Hotel Tourism Association, HeadKnowles, Odyssey Aviation Bahamas, Food for the Poor and Sandals Royal Bahamian, a Sandals representative told ABC News.

Additionally, Sandals Foundation delivered 30,240 bottles of water on Sept. 3 to the northern Bahamian islands in partnership with the Bahamas Hotel Tourism Association, HeadKnowles and Odyssey Aviation Bahamas.
