About 180 miles south-east of Nassau, San Salvador is roughly 12 miles long and 5 miles wide. The most well know fact about this island is that Christopher Columbus discovered San Salvador in 1492.

Other than that San Salvador has maybe 30 more tourists per week living in rental homes or condos and the Riding Rock hotel which is famous for diving or the Guanahani resort that is famous for kite surfing and 30 something families visiting during the year that own property on San Salvador or people come on their boat and spend time here in San Salvador. There is also the Gerace research centre which host students from the US for a few weeks at the time.

So, with only a hand full of people you can probably already imagine that the beautiful beaches of the Island are not only breathtaking beautiful but also deserted. You can walk for hours and not see another soul. People coming on vacation to San Salvador usually seek the peace and quiet and the beauty of the crystal clear turquoise and aqua waters. They go diving or fishing or swimming or snorkeling or boating but basically every activity involves the water.

We have a few restaurants on the island and a few bars and a festival once in a while and some beautiful sites to see but San Salvador is not your typical tourist destination. This island is all about relaxing and letting go and seeing the incredible beauty this Island has to offer.

Some people call San Salvador the “Hidden gem of the Bahamas”, I like to refer to it as “The forgotten Island” (there is a book with this title) but most locals call it “The Rock” because it really is a rock sticking out of the water.

Life here in San Salvador never seems to change, it feels as if time stands still. No rush, no stress, no drama, no crime, only friendly people that help each other. If you have a car and drive around the Island you have to keep your window open so you can greet each car that passes by. (if you know the people or not doesn’t matter)

Going shopping for milk usually takes me a few hours because I have to stop at Stanley’s bar for a drink or soda, then I talk to Edna for a little bit (Stanley’s mother) and before I leave some other people that I know show up and you have a little chat and once I am on the road again I might run into a neighbor and exchange some words and at the grocery store I always meet people that I know and we joke around a little and and and. Life is different here !!!
