Saturday Video: Experience Crooked Island and Acklins

Authentic Bahamas – Crooked Island & Acklins from Authentic Bahamas on Vimeo.

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…
