If you learn anything about Bahamian culture it’s that there is no such thing as rush hour. That remains true at the Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. On your return home, just remember that your vacation does not have to end at the hotel. There’s still lots to do in the international terminal. Jewelry made from conch shells, hand-made soaps, and swimming pigs.
Stuffed swimming pigs, that is, to commemorate your Exuma excursion, are available at the Bahama Pearl souvenir and novelty store, along with other great finds, including shot glasses, tumblers, and T-shirts.
Long before the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) got its name, the Bahama Pearl made it it's home, providing millions of annual airline travelers authentic Bahamian souvenirs and novelty items. Then owner, Althea Brown was among the first to introduce straw work to its customers. Now run by her daughters, the Bahama Pearl is a one-stop-shop for gift-givers, last-minute shoppers and the “I just had to get it” traveler.
While you can’t take the beach with you, you can take with you a freshwater pearl necklace from Victor and Sophia or dazzling turquoise earrings from the Adorn jewelry store. Live the island life with an airy sarong made by My Ocean or sunglasses from Suntime Bahamas.
Taste the islands wherever you go when you purchase from Nassau Duty-Free or purchase a moist Bahamian rum cake from Tortuga, packaged for the long flight home.
Capture the islands with arts and crafts from Uniquely Bahamian art store. This way, even on the coldest, busiest days, you can reminisce about your time in The Bahamas.
So, why spend your time sitting and waiting for a flight? and indulge in one last mouth-watering dish or cold drink from the restaurants, pubs and signature lounges, like Rhythm Café and the Lignum Club Lounge. Go on a treasure hunt for the perfect souvenir, a gift for the in-laws or a stuffed pig for the kid next door.
The best part is that each store along the shopping concourse is a mere three minutes away. Don’t just sit there. Get up and do more at LPIA.
Your travel is our pleasure.
