Although Sunwing has temporarily suspended all southbound flights until April 30th, Deana Murphy, Vice President of Retail Sales says Grand Bahama has been a long-time favourite vacation destination amongst Canadian sun-seekers for the airline.
“Known for its laid back and relaxing ambiance, the island’s breathtaking natural landscapes offer something for every travel style,” she says. “Beach lovers have no shortage of options to choose from, with sparkling white-sand shores and calm turquoise waters lining the coast. The calm waters and fascinating dive sites make it an ideal destination for those looking to discover the deep blue – snorkelling and scuba diving enthusiasts can swim alongside exotic marine life and above colourful coral reefs off the coast of Peterson Cay National Park and other popular sites. Eco-enthusiasts can explore the destination’s natural beauty on a Sunwing Experiences excursion, from riding bikes along the coast to exploring the world’s largest underwater cave system at Lucayan National Park. Sunwing Experiences excursions can be booked in advance as an add-on to vacation packages, giving travellers the chance to save by pre-paying in Canadian dollars.”
Typically, vacationers can choose from a number of hotels and resorts in Grand Bahama.
Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach is a Sunwing favourite all-inclusive resort that’s perfect for families with exciting activities like trapeze, paintball and snorkelling. Plus, families can take their travel budget even further with SmileResorts™ inclusions where up to two kids (aged two-12 years) stay, play and eat free with no single parent supplement fee, supervised kids’ club and more.
Pelican Bay Hotel is an ideal choice for travellers looking to explore the island at their own pace, with a complimentary buffet breakfast every day. Foodies can explore the local culinary scene of Lucaya just a short drive away or dine at one of the hotel’s two on-site restaurants (at an added cost). The hotel also offers a complimentary ferry ride to nearby Taino Beach where they can soak up the sun or try out a range of water sports.
Island Seas Resort is a great option for larger families travelling together – with accommodation options that can sleep five or more. Every room at the resort includes a full kitchen, giving guests the freedom to cook their own meals. Guests who want to enjoy a classic all-inclusive experience can upgrade to the resort’s all-inclusive plan and dine at one of two on-site restaurants. During the day, guests can soak up the sun by the pristine beach while kids play at the Camp Coconuts kids club.
