Open For Business

Print

Nassau Paradise Island was unaffected by the recent storm. Our thoughts and support are with our neighbors that were severely impacted, The Abacos and Grand Bahama Island.

Nassau Paradise Island is open for business. All hotels, resorts, and attractions are open and welcoming visitors, and it’s business as usual for the Lynden Pindling International Airport.

Where did Hurricane Dorian impact The Bahamas?

The Bahamas is comprised of 700 islands and cays that are spread over a large area in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s about 600 miles from the northernmost island, Grand Bahama Island, and the southernmost, Inagua Island. From the westernmost point, Cay Sal, to the easternmost island of San Salvador, it is a distance of around 400 miles. For context, it would take a jet plane an hour to fly from one end of the Bahamian archipelago to the other.

Sadly, Hurricane Dorian devastated the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco. These islands are located 132 miles and 86 miles, respectively, from Nassau Paradise Island. The Central and South Central Bahamas Regions (including Nassau Paradise Island, Eleuthera & Harbour Island, Andros, The Exumas, San Salvador, etc.), fortunately, were not impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

Message From The President of BHTA:

Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) members including those in the hotel sector, have reported that the pace of forward bookings has softened, in some cases significantly, when compared to bookings for the same period last year.

“A number of factors, including the severity of the impact of Dorian on Grand Bahama and Abaco, the subsequent widespread coverage and the lack of understanding of Bahama Islands geography, has resulted in a marked impact on business, which is unfortunate but not unanticipated. This is certainly the case for Nassau, Paradise Island,” states Carlton Russell, President of the BHTA.
