The Atlantis Marina

My family and I enjoy to travel to the Caribbean, especially the Bahamas.   We have a timeshare at Harborside Resort on Paradise Island and visit the Bahamas once a year.  Some of the things that attract us most to the Bahamas are:

  • Friendly people - Everyone we've encountered on PI and New Providence has been respectful and courteous.  (more on this later)
  • The plane flight is relatively short for us.  We typically leave at 6 a.m. and are at The Point restaurant eating lunch by noon.
  • Economy - We've been there quite a few times.  We know how to do it economically.  It doesn't have to be expensive.
  • Harborside has all the amenities of home.  Kitchen, washer/dryer, stove, blender, utensils, pots, pans, etc.  These things help keep the cost down.
  • Weather - When says it's going to rain every day, it usually means a quick shower and not rain like we see in the northeast.
  • Cool stuff to do - If you like casino's and tourist traps they have them.  If you like uncrowded beaches and interaction with the locals you can get that too.
  • The dollar is used interchangeably.
