Whenever we visit a new place, our favorite thing to do is to start out by purchasing a guidebook that tells us all the fun things to see and do in the place to which we are traveling. The hottest tourist attractions, the best places to eat, even the most charming boutiques can be found in these guides and we try to see and experience them all. But what these books can’t tell you is where the best spots for viewing a sunset are, or what special drink you should try, or even that a famous singer sang about a certain restaurant that you absolutely have to visit during your stay—and that’s where we come in with our list of things to do in the Bahamas won’t find in a guidebook during your stay in paradise!

Cheeseburgers, Anyone?

Although Harbour Island is famous for its seafood dishes, conch meals in particular, everyone falls in love with the cheeseburgers offered at Ma Ruby’s on Colebrooke Street in Dunmore Town; Jimmy Buffet’s famous Cheeseburgers in Paradise is said to be written about this local favorite! Who would have thought that paradise could serve such amazing burgers?

Sip a Smash

A Goombay Smash, that is! Made of a variety of rums and juices, there’s a reason this special drink is the most ordered one on the island; just make sure you don’t have to drive anywhere after your sampling expedition! They go down really smooth and its only later that you begin to realize how much of a punch this sweet drink packs. The Rock House Restaurant on Bay Street in Dunmore Town is known for their skills at concocting this tropical beverage!

Dancing at Daddy D’s Dunmore Street

Although our nightlife on Harbour Island mostly consists of moonlight strolls along the beach, if you feel the urge to let down your hair as you kick up your heels, Daddy D’s is the place for you! Located in the heart of the town, it’s also another great place to order a Goombay Smash when you need a little liquid courage to entice you out onto the dance floor!

One of the Best Things to do in the Bahamas

To be honest, it’s difficult to find a bad spot in which to view a Harbour Island sunset, but if you’re interested in viewing it from the best spot, you won’t have far to walk. As a matter of fact, all you have to do is slide open the glass doors off your living room in your Bahamas Real Estate piece of vacation paradise and step outside to experience one of the best things to do in the Bahamas.
