Bahamas National Trust Wine and Art Festival

Hosted annually at the Bahamas National Trust retreat in Nassau, this wine and art festival is one that continues to grow in popularity and shouldn’t be missed. Stop by and enjoy everything from wine tastings to chef demonstrations while indulging in a soundtrack made possible by a variety of live musical performances. This two-day event in October includes a beer garden and an array of craft booths highlighting the hand-crafted work of local artisans and craftsman. Feel free to browse or buy when you stumble across that one-of-a-kind piece of art you just can’t live without.

Pink Sand Beach

While the stunning Pink Sand Beach found on Harbor Island isn’t exclusive to the fall season, this is by far the best time to visit, as this highly popular and scenic destination enjoys fewer crowds when autumn rolls around. Bring your beach chair and feel free to stretch out on this captivating stretch of sand that sports a pink hue and an endless horizon. Photographers won’t want to forget their cameras as the enchanting color of the ground contrasts beautifully against the sky and sea.

Annual Regattas

Sailing the turquoise waters that make up the Bahamas has long been a local pastime, but if you happen to be in the area in the fall, October marks the month that hosts the annual North Eleuthera Regatta. October 4th through October 7th, visitors to Eleuthera can watch in wonder as sails are raised over the water and vessels cut through the waves in the name of competition. Beach parties, performances, food and even conch cracking competition are all part of the land-based fun while participants race towards their final destination. Enjoy the views of spectacular vessels and the fun that comes with the festive extras when you take part in the 29th annual event.
