The Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board has launched the Grand Life Magazine with a number of US-based travel agencies and representatives from the Ministry of Tourism Investments and Aviation attending the event. The soft launch ceremony was held at the Lighthouse Pointe at Grand Lucayan Resort and guests were given a sneak peek of the magazine prior to its official release on February 21.
The digital version of the Grand Life Magazine is available since February 2 showcasing Grand Bahama’s rich and varied history to its global audience.
The Grand Life Magazine is a full-length publication that will be distributed in print and online to tourists, travel agents, and attendees of international tourism events. The very first edition has a variety of articles regarding the people, culture, and cuisine of Grand Bahama. It features the 40th anniversary of the Smith’s Point Fish Fry, rare culinary finds, and stories of the island’s peculiar inhabitants.
The Grand Life Magazine was created by Carmel Churchill and Nikia Wells, both of whom are residents of Grand Bahama.
“The Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board challenged us to create a digital publication that would encapsulate the stories and people of Grand Bahama,” stated Churchill. “As Grand Bahamians who both have a great passion and deep love for the island, we wanted to share authentic and heartfelt experiences.”
Wells continued, “In this inaugural edition of Grand Life Magazine, we aim to present a gripping story about the actual Grand Bahama and highlight some of the island’s remarkable activities. It is an island for families, a city, and an ecological paradise. And it is a dream come true to be able to represent our beautiful home island on the international stage.”
Churchill also mentions that the second edition of Grand Life Magazine is currently under production. “The energy and excitement of this first issue have accelerated the wheels turning for the second edition, which promises to be jam-packed and filled with a number of ‘bucket list’ things to do while on the island.”
