Why Stay At Club Med Columbus Isle

Club Med's lively energy meets quiet San Salvador, a pristine island in the Bahamas that still feels off-the-beaten path.

The Scoop

One of only three hotels on San Salvador, in the Bahamas, Club Med Columbus Isle delivers an amenity-filled escape on an island that still seems as far off the tourist trail as when Columbus came ashore in 1492. Set on one of the destination's prettiest beaches—a white-sand stretch along Bonefish Bay—the hotel's 236 rooms open onto balconies with views of the ocean or garden. Travelers have no trouble finding their cottages: each is painted a crayon-bright shade, with wraparound porches and slanted roofs that are reflective of the area's Bahamian architecture. Activities range from the festive (costume contests and musical-comedy shows) to the adventurous (windsurfing and scuba diving)—and most are included in the all-inclusive rate.

Insider Tips

Rent a bike and pedal around the island's ring road. You'll pass by the 18th-century Watling's Castle plantation house and the 1887 Dixon Hill Lighthouse.

Landlubbers opt for the resort's tennis school, where group and private lessons are offered six days a week on clay courts.

Why We Love San Salvador

Located on the outer eastern edge of the Bahamas archipelago, quiet San Salvador is the place where Christopher Columbus first discovered the New World. Cockburn Town is the island's only settlement; otherwise San Salvador remains largely wild and undeveloped.

Don't Miss

Where to Eat: Have an authentic Bahamian feast (cracked conch; grilled grouper) at the Paradise Island institution Columbus Tavern—order the signature steak Diane, prepared table side, before finishing off with the Guava Duff dessert.

Top Dive Site: Telephone Pole, a well-known underwater reef, ends in a sandy basin strewn with large coral boulders. Be on the lookout for stingrays, garden eels, and Nassau groupers.

Best Beaches: The island's southern edge is where you'll find the quietest beaches, such as Grotto Beach near Watling's Castle and the aptly named Snow Bay near Pigeon Creek.
