Kathie Lee & Hoda: Island Hopping with Sara Haines
There are 700 islands that are part of the Bahamas. To help you out with them, Sara Haines took a little plane and did some island hopping for Kathie Lee and Hoda, including The Abacos and The Exumas Islands review.
Island Hopping: Andros
Sara Haines said it was a little island of tranquility. Her first stop was to learn how to make Androsia batik, the national fabric of the Bahamas. They make wax stamps and put the stamps on the fabric and then dye the fabric. Andros also has a lot of blue holes, which are vertical underwater caves. She checks out Captain Bill’s Blue Hole.
Bahamas Islands: The Abacos
Sara’s next stop is touring The Abacos, which is an island chain that is a paradise for boaters. She made a visit to the Elbow Reef Lighthouse, which has served as a beacon for sailors since 1864. She said it is the best view, maybe ever. There are no other lighthouses in the world that are kerosene-lit and hand-wound. She then sailed over to Green Turtle Key, a festive little gem of an island. She went to Miss Emily’s Blue Bee Bar and she learned how to shake up their famous cocktail, the Goombay Smash. It contained a little coconut rum, pineapple juice and some mystery ingredients.
Island Hopping: The Exumas
Sara went to the middle of the Bahamas to The Exumas, which consists of 365 islands and most of them are uninhabited. She heads over to Big Major Key and she found swimming pigs! She even got a glimpse of the newest members of their family, the piglets. She said her tour wouldn’t be complete without hitting the beach party at Chat ‘N’ Chill on Stocking Island. The centerpiece of the establishment is a signpost created by it’s customers from around the globe, which they add a Today Show sign to it.
