THE BAHAMAS ELIMINATES THE HEALTH VISA FOR ALL TRAVELLERS AND REMOVES TESTING FOR VACCINATED TRAVELLERS ONLY
STREAMLINED ENTRY PROTOCOLS TAKE EFFECT 19 JUNE 2022
In addition to eliminating the mandatory Bahamas Travel Health Visa, the Government of The Bahamas has announced that fully vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to submit to pre-travel COVID-19 testing to enter the country. All unvaccinated travellers ages 2 and older will be required to obtain a negative COVID-19 test — either a negative RT-PCR test or a Rapid Antigen test — taken no more than three days (72 hours) prior to travel and present the negative test results at check-in before travel to The Bahamas. Changes go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, 19 June 2022. To read the full press releases, please see below.
A little over an hour’s flight from most parts of Florida, Green Turtle Cay is an island in a chain of islands in the Abacos called the Bahamian Out Islands. The best way to travel to Bluff House is to fly into Treasure Cay International Airport (TCB) or Marsh Harbour International Airport (MHH) from Florida. Treasure Cay airport is a 5-minute cab ride and Marsh Harbour airport is a 35-minute cab ride to the Treasure Cay Ferry Dock. Ask your Ferry boat captain to take you to Bluff House. It’s a 20-minute, scenic ferry boat ride to New Plymouth and then your captain will drop you off at the Bluff House dock.

More and more people are discovering the natural beauty and undiscovered wonders of the out islands of the Bahamas. That means more flights, more ferries and more vacation opportunities are springing up every day, giving you fewer and fewer reasons not to visit the islands everyone is talking about.

Golf Cart Rental
On a tiny island, where roads are narrow and automobiles impractical, the Golf Cart reigns supreme. Gas-powered and sun-shaded, they’re powerful enough to move four adults anywhere they want to go. You’ll enjoy a day of exploring Green Turtle where an unexpected turn off the main road leads you through a canopied trail of tropical foliage. A little further and you’re at a spectacular, whitesand beach and it’s all yours for as far as the eye can see.
