The spots Bahama locals recommend you visit on your next vacation


February 27, 2020

As you are booking your Bahamas vacation, you are brimming with excitement. The landscape, the activities, the culture...what could be better? We have compiled some of the best spots for you to visit on your next spot to the beautiful islands. As always, please stop by to see us at Bonefish Drex for a family-friendly fishing adventure, but in the meantime...here our are favorite spots!

Let’s start with the good stuff - the food! The Bahamas have some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean and you will certainly be missing out if you don’t stop at at least some of these. There truly is something for everyone!
  • Max’s Conch Bar and Grill: This local roadside restaurant is casual, quirky, and well-known among Bahamian locals. The gazebo-like structure is covered in local flair including license plates, figurines, and local trinkets. 
  • Cricket Club Restaurant and Pub: The Cricket Club is perfect for those wanting to stay within budget, but also experience a more relaxed and casual environment. The Cricket Club Restaurant and Pub is laid back, and offers some delicious brunch and local Bahamian cuisine. 
  • Cafe Matisse: This one is the perfect restaurant if you are looking for a splurge while in the Bahamas, especially if you love Italian food. 
  • Xuma’s Restaurant and Bar: To get to Xuma’s Restaurant and Bar, you’ll have to charter a sailboat and sail to Highbourne Cay, but the trip is well worth it! The fresh seafood, and expert plating keeps locals and tourists coming back for more.

Yes, stop by the amazing restaurants we just mentioned, but you should also consider trying some unique activities: 
  • Bonefishing: Bonefishing in the Bahamas is fly fishing, but for bonefish. Bonefishing is a popular sport in the Bahamas, but most Bonefish are released upon capture.
  • Sightseeing: From swimming with the pigs at Big Beach and exploring the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, to enjoying Cocoplum Beach, finding fossils and seeing the Angelfish Blue Hole, add any or all of these stops to your itinerary this year.

Ready to book a trip?! We’ve given you the five best reasons we can offer - short of getting a doctor’s note of course! Before booking at a typical resort, give Bonefish Drex a call.
