Before you indulge in Harbour Island’s old-school glamour you’ll need to address matters of the “new normal” brought on by the COVID pandemic. Thanks to mask regulations and constant testing the transmission rate on the island continues to be much lower in comparison to the rest of The Bahamas. A mask is required while in a taxi and when entering a shop, restaurant or hotel.
With this in mind, you can still count on dancing under the disco ball at Gusty’s but will still need to adhere to the 12 p.m. curfew on the island. As the most respected luxury concierge on the island we constantly track updates made to the regulations set out by The Bahamian government and take pride in offering our guests private COVID testing in the privacy of their hotel or vacation rental.
Here’s a few helpful links to best prepare for your upcoming trip to Harbour Island:
Pre-Departure & Arrival, Travel Health Visa, During Travel & On Island Experience
Because we're in the business of making your trip stress free, we've provided a reference chart for current COVID-19 protocols for both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers for The Bahamas.
LEAVING PARADISE - Do I have to get tested to leave the island?
The simple answer is Yes. Depending on the country of origin, these restrictions differ. For example, the United States requires a negative antigen test for both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers within 48 hours of departure. There's no need to fret though, we have you covered.
As the old adage goes, all good things must come to an end, but that doesn’t mean you have to start stressing! The Conch & Coconut team has partnered with the most respected medical resources on the island to provide you access to at-home testing for your return to your country of origin.
If you’d like to schedule an at-home/resort COVID PCR or Rapid Antigen Test please let our team know at least 48 hours in advance so we can make proper arrangements.
