Despite the devastating Hurricane Dorian barrelling through the Bahamas, Nassau and Paradise Island in the Bahamas have recently announced that it is still open and ready to welcome the tourists.
The island’s tourism board informed the people that it was unaffected by the storm by releasing a new video and campaign. The iconic hotels and resorts Atlantis and Baha Mar are open, and air service to and from the island has resumed as usual.
In his statement, the CEO of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board, Fred Lounsberry said that when tourists hear about the Bahamas being ravaged by Hurricane Dorian, they automatically associate Nassau with the devastation, since it is the capital of the Bahamas.
He also added that while the thoughts and prayers of the residents of Nassau are very much with the neighbors in Grand Bahama and the Abacos, Nassau and Paradise Island were not affected by the storm, and hence are up and about, welcoming tourists.
“One of the best ways to support the Bahamas is by visiting,” said Lounsberry.
The Bahamas are comprised of more than 700 islands. Many of these were not severely affected by Hurricane Dorian. Nassau Paradise Island is located about 90 miles south of the Abacos and 130 miles south of the Grand Bahama.
