When Charlotte McKinney was a kid growing up in Orlando, her family would spent every any vacation in the Bahamas.

In fact, she loves the Bahamas so much she’s made her home on Paradise Island (when she’s not traveling around the world!) And here’s her personal “Best-of-the-Bahamas” list.

1. Spend the day at The Ocean Club

Drink at Dune Bar during happy hour – My all-time favorite with live music playing

Grab a Conch salad at OCEAN restaurant by the pool 

Eat at Dune by Chef Jean-Georges

2. Indulge at Swiss Pastry Shop for Patty Pies, cakes and cookies

3. Stop by the Carlo Milano store.

Be sure to visit Versace and Yves Saint Laurent too!

4. Eat at the Poop Deck

5. Eat conch salad from the local stand under the bridge on Arawak Cay

6. Head to Bay Street

Eat at Wild Thyme Restaurant & Bar for a Vegetable Pepper Pot soup and a Lobster salad. My folks and I can also get the Cracked Conch – It’s not a trip to Nassau without one good meal of Conch!

7. Alo Yoga for morning yoga on the beach

8. FRAME Denim is my new favorite swimsuit for the summer

9. Schutz slides are my new favorite slides

10. Local Straw Market beach bag
