Taino Beach Remote

The trip to Grand Bahama Island several weeks ago with the Bahama Tourist Office’s Summer Boating Fling to Port Lucaya was just enough to tempt Talkin’ Tourism to go back and find out more cool stuff about the closest island to the Treasure Coast and the “Gateway to the Northern Bahamas." With Robin still attending weddings and getting into “nuptial tourism," Radio Man will have the pleasure of sharing hosting duties with none other than Bimini Mango Man. 

Mango Man is no stranger to the Treasure Coast and is one of the most popular “one man band” acts in The Bahamas. While residing on Grand Bahama, Mango can be found engaging audiences on many of the Family Islands. Mango will probably cover Grand Bahama “wildlife” from an entertainers point of view. That should be interesting! Other guests planned include Mario Bodner, project director of Taino Beach Resort and Clubs and Flamingo Bay Hotel. Rumor has it that Flamingo Bay Hotel is a favorite “haunt” of the Coastal Angler Magazine-Flahama Team. We’ll look forward to what special deals Mario has for the boating enthusiast! 

What about great places to eat and drink on Grand Bahama? We have the expert for you. Brian Botham, proprietor of Red Beard’s Pub, an award winning and Trip Advisor recommended establishment, will tell you all about his great place and, as a restaurateur, recommend some of Grand Bahamas best eateries just for you. 

For the nature enthusiast, Grand Bahama Ministry of Tourism representative Andre Cartwright will tell our listeners all about great outdoors and nature adventures you can partake in while visiting Grand Bahama Island. From ancient caves and birding, to snorkeling in marine preserves, getting outdoors and up close and personal with the flora, fauna and fishes is a big part of the fun. 

So fans, join us this week from our beachside studio on Grand Bahama Island and get another dose of Island Times with Talkin’ Tourism. The fun begins Friday, July 1, at 10 a.m. on WPSL 1590 AM or from your computer at www.wpsl.com.
