    Traveling While Black

    While my husband and I are still new to traveling, we have enjoyed the Bahamas three times. We cruised to Nassau twice. Both times the locals were very friendly and hospitable. I will say, it can be a bit of a hassle to pass through the vendors and drivers outside of the port, but as someone that’s spent much of my youth in NYC, a little bit of haggling doesn’t bother me. I respect the hustle! If you’re looking for a local, free beach, Junkanoo (I believe that’s how it’s spelled) is a short walk from port. If you want great local food, take a taxi to the Fish Fry district. If you plan to do an excursion, I would suggest purchasing it through Viator or another company, rather than the cruise line. That way you’re spending your money with the locals.

    Paradise Island to be specific, is not for black travelers. The hotel I stayed at (Riu hotel) did not hesitate to single out black guest for the same reasons that others were doing. We even pointed out other travelers and their violations, and they did not a single thing to them. We did not feel welcome or comfortable.

    When you visit Nassau you must visit the fish fry area and go to GOLDIE’s. First and foremost it’s owned by a black family that is local to the island. The vibes are chill with a twist a hype on karaoke night. No joke my friends and I stopped here after visiting the beach. We got there at 5pm and didn’t leave until 11pm. We had shots, drinks, amazing food, and enjoyed the karaoke. Needless to say when we walked out of there were weren’t walking straight lol. Do not leave Nassau without visiting Goldie’s. You won’t regret it.

    I’m a Bahamian and I think traveling to the Bahamas is a foodie’s delight barring allergies and/or dietary restrictions. Bahamians have a handle on several seafood dishes particularly conch and make it in a variety of dishes. If you can eat seafood, definitely try a conch salad.
