Hi, we’re hoping to come to the Bahamas in early November for 5 nights. We’ll have spent time with a hire car in Florida, and we’d really rather not have the expense of hiring a car here too - plus, we enjoy a drink, and are looking forward to chilling with a few beers!
Could anyone recommend the best area to stay where we can get by without a car? I’ve looked at Eleuthera but lots of posts say you really need a car to make the most of a stay there.
We love beaches, wildlife, prettiness and maybe a little history, and although we’re not bothered about a huge amount of nightlife, a handful of bars and restaurants nearby would be perfect.
Do you think I would be best to stay somewhere like Nassau or Freeport if we don’t have a car? And if so, do these heavily built up towns still retain some of the Bahamas feel, or are they very very commercial?
Any advice would be wonderful!
