Introducing Out Islands

Just when the glossy mags started touting the Out Islands as ‘in,’ the Ministry of Tourism slapped a new label on them and confused the issue. In order to highlight the slower pace and small-town values of the islands scattered beyond New Providence and Grand Bahama, they’re now also marketed as ‘the Family Islands.’ Whatever you call them, it’s hard to deny the allure of the quiet rhythms and unspoiled views that make the Out Islands the best of the Bahamas for off-the-beaten-path exploring. For helpful info on beaches, landmarks and hotels, see the website of Out Islands of the Bahamas, run by the Out Islands Promotion Board.
