We did the Abacos then down through the family islands. Only I would skip San Salvador if I was to do it again. The anchorage is dicey and the marina was untenable forcing a exit at dark through surf. NOT good.
Eleuthera and Spanish Wells were nice. Should not have been effected by the storms. Further South stopped at Managuaya, pretty deserted place with a good anchorage. Not much to do shoreside. We laid there 3 days with 40 knots and were fine.
We felt very safe and almost no crime. We frequently rent a car for a day to tour an island from shore side.
Georgetown, Exumas was not as bad as we thought it might be. But we were with under 200 boats on the hook. I hear they can get close to 300 during race week whenever that is. So maybe someone could fill in on that.
We liked the Abacos best but I would give them a skip for a couple of years unless you need to do something to contribute.
We liked the Bahamas but are not wild to go back. Too flat and arid, but thatís a personal taste thing. We prefer DR, PR
, Dominique, Guadeloupe, Martinique.
