Paradise is Closer Than You Think!

Posted by: Nassau Paradise Island on February 15, 2017

There’s nothing quite like the middle of February to make it feel like summer is ages away. Chances are you’ve spent the occasional chilly or dreary afternoon daydreaming of sipping a refreshing cocktail on a warm, sunny beach. No wonder The Bahamas is such a popular destination in the winter and spring months! It’s Better in The Bahamas, and there are some things that are just better in Nassau Paradise Island. For one thing, the beautiful shores of paradise are closer than you think.

Several airlines, including American Airlines, Bahamasair, Delta Air Lines, and jetBlue, offer daily non-stop flights to Nassau. No spending full days in airports or making lengthy journeys from the airport to the resort by yourself! You’ll be flying into Lynden Pindling International Airport, The Bahamas’ largest airport. Once you exit the airport you’re only a 20-minute drive from downtown Nassau, making land transfers to and from the airport a breeze.

Daily flights from many major airports allow you to be flexible with your planning and excellent travel deals available year-round for some of our most popular hotels mean your wallet will agree that a Bahamas vacation is well within reach.

The average flight time from Boston or New York is just over three hours and flights from Florida can be as quick as 30 minutes, depending on your departure point. With no-fuss flight times like this, you can even head to Nassau for a quick weekend retreat! Just pack your beach essentials in your carry-on bag, grab your passport, and head for the stunning white sand and warm waters of Paradise Island.

If you’ve flown to Nassau once, you’ve learned that a window seat is the best seat in the plane! Before you even land in paradise you’re treated to unbelievable views of our turquoise waters—waters so vibrant they can be spotted from space! Peer out the window, sneak an #InstaParadise pic, and start counting down the minutes until you can dip your toes into that warm, clear water.

Not only are the sunny skies of Nassau accessible by daily non-stop flights to The Bahamas, your senses will come alive with the sights, sounds, feelings, and smells of paradise just about as soon as you land! Feel the warmth of the sun on your face, hear the sounds of the breeze in the palm trees, and get ready for an island vacation!
