It takes some time and exploring to truly understand the Bahamas in its entirety. It’s more than 700 islands, cays and islets stretching over 400 miles from north to south. Only 31 of its islands are inhabited and less than that are regularly visited by tourists. Among the hot spots where Junkanoo festivals march, Goombay Smash drinks flow and roadside conch salad prevails — no two islands are alike.
The capital city Nassau, on the island of New Providence with its mega-resorts Atlantis and Baha Mar attracts more than 50-percent of the visitors annually. It’s like the New York City of the Bahamas. It’s nothing like the Island of Grand Bahama to the north, which is more quiet than the capital. And there are the Out Islands of Abaco, Eleuthera and Exuma which are even more relaxed. In fact, they are some of the most private and secluded islands in the world.
We’ve been blessed to visit many of the islands in the Bahamas: Abaco, Eleuthera and Exuma — each special in their own way. But it’s people that shape experiences and Bahamians are a special type of kind.
A statement on the The Abaco Club website reads, “The Abaco Club weathered Hurricane Dorian relatively well, but unfortunately the same cannot be said for other parts of the Abacos, where there has been widespread destruction, and most sadly, loss of life. With that in mind, The Abaco golf club on Winding Bay is acting to provide urgent and immediate assistance to the people of Great Abaco Island through the Abaco-Winding Bay Relief Fund.”
World’s Best Golf Destinations is pleased to support the Abaco-Winding Bay Relief Fund, a charitable organization created expressly for this effort with 501(c)3 status applied for and pending. All funds received from the GoFundMe campaign will be used to provide assistance specifically to the people of Abaco in the form of food, shelter, medical aid and supplies, and assistance in the island’s clean-up and rebuilding efforts. Donations to the GoFundMe page will have double the impact as the Chairman of Southworth Development, Joseph Deitch, has pledged to match the first $1M raised.
