Picture the long stretch of beach, pristine accommodations and crystal-blue waters of Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, Bahamas. That’s Grand Isle Resort & Spa.
Plan for a family vacation for all ages, with more water sports, activities and family-friendly fun than you’ll know what to do with, or make it a couple’s retreat with more than enough leisurely fun and relaxation opportunities to go around. ‘Tis the season!
Get on island time at Grand Isle Resort’s newly opened 23 North Beach Club, offering an escape within an escape. Take a dip in the infinity pool after making your way off the beach and unwind in the nearby daybeds, cabanas or cozy up to the indoor/outdoor bar while the kids make sand castles. Peruse the Bahamian-Asian fusion menu with the sunshine on your back and light breeze blowing by — sounds a little better than a polar vortex.
There’s plenty of fun off the resort as well, with visits to local swimming pigs (a favorite among tourists). Visit Exuma’s 365 Cays to immerse yourself in nature while feeding iguanas and swimming with sharks. Refuel with lunch at Chat ‘n Chill, or head back in the water and swim with stingrays. Keep your snorkel on and dive a little deeper to view vibrant reefs below the surface, or kick off your flippers and make your way into Georgetown.
The options are nearly endless and there’s no rush to choose right now, so you’re basically on island time already. Book using the promotion and plan for a warm-weather getaway.
Continuing our story from yesterday (if you missed it, click here), here’s part two on how to make the most of your weekend pioneering, with a closer look at our itinerary for Saturday:

Chances are you know South Beach or have heard about the southernmost section of Miami Beach — 23rd Street to South Pointe Park. It’s the historic Art Deco district with stunning white and pastel buildings lining Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue and beyond.
Tucked into the central coast of California is a trail of history waiting to be found by your kids. The Highway 1 Discovery Route through San Luis Obispo County snakes along the winnowy Pacific Coast Highway, CA-1, between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The more than 100 miles of mostly protected coastline begins after a four-hour drive from San Francisco at Ragged Point, or about three hours from Los Angeles at Nipomo. The trail features 10 cities, connected by cliffs, carved by a moody ocean, and a slower pace of life. There are plenty of reasons to stop and walk into the past, preserved by those whose hearts still live there. Nature lovers will linger on the many trails to hike and picnic areas. We drove from Los Angeles with two 9-year-old boys to explore this part of the state.
