Tagged: , , , ,

It’s been too long since we’ve heard from guest autho James Greer and his beach bar adventures. Part of that is my fault, party of that is COVID hell and part of that is, well, you’ll have to read his article to discover the rest. Either way, I’m glad he’s back with us, painting pictures with words in a manner far superior to my own. Next stop – Cozumel! We lived in a significantly different world...

When it comes to beach bars in the Bahamas, visitors might be surprised to find out one of the best ones is owned by a resort.

It’s also a quick ferry ride away on Stocking Island...

Come along for another wonderful beach bar adventure in the Bahamas as only Ian Corks can tell it! Although we have hoping around the islands for 20 plus years, until recently, we hadn’t visited Eleuthera. We had heard nothing but good things about this quiet Bahamian island, that lies some 80 miles – or a 20 minute flight – east of Nassau. Among those positive reviews, the name Tippy’s kept popping up. Tippy’s Restaurant &...

Tagged: , , , ,

The thing about Jim Greer is that the manner in which he conveys his travel experiences, among them this most recent story about a beach bar breakfast in Curacao, is so poetic that they seem magical. Really, though, how many of us, when we first encounter an island or destination, have chosen to strike out on our own in search of somewhere special? Some of my most memorable experiences at beach bars have been the ones I found on my...
