Saturday Video: Experience Crooked Island and Acklins

It’s been almost a full year since we first featured one of the stunning Authentic Bahamas videos in this space. We did so as a declaration, of sorts, to visit and experience more of the country’s 700+ islands, cays and islets. Of all the areas of the Caribbean we cover, The Bahamas ranks among the ones we know the least. We affirmed:

This. Had. To. Change.

So, how have we been doing with our little quest?

Err, umm… not so good…

For my part, I spent one night in all-too-common Nassau last fall, where at least I managed to uncover an uncommonly controversial attraction, while also re-discovering one of the coolest little hotels around. Several months later, I kicked things up a notch by whisking the wife away to Green Turtle Cay in The Abacos. This was more like it, of course, but we still have a loooooonnnngggg way to go.

(As you may have noticed, Patrick isn’t helping either. To date, I don’t believe he’s ever set foot in any part of The Bahamas!)

We. Must. Do. Better.

Hopefully this latest Authentic Bahamas video can provide the right impetus. In it, you’ll experience the incredible beauty of Crooked Island and Acklins, as captured by the cinematic geniuses at Lightbourn International Pictures. The two primary islands sitting along the shallow Bight of Acklins lagoon, Crooked Island and Acklins are prime destinations for bonefishing, boating, snorkeling and pure escapism. Judging from the video, the photo-ops and bird-watching are pretty spectacular as well.

Sounds perfect for us, right? Hopefully we’ll have a lot more to say about these special islands before another year goes by…

  • Love these Authentic Bahamas videos. I, like you, have made seeing more of the Bahamian islands a must. The out islands is where it’s at. Trip to Bimini coming up in September, ready to mark it off the list, but with plenty more yet to be explored.  Cheers!
