Between limited vacation time and limited budgets, micro-cations are rising in popularity among American travelers. With direct flights from Miami and Fort Lauderdale just an hour away, those looking to stamp their passports on a short getaway can head to Grand Isle Resort & Spa in Great Exuma, Bahamas.

Grand Isle Resort & Spa sits on a mile-long stretch of sand and sea in Emerald Bay, offering guests a beach escape away from the crowds of the main islands and Nassau. The resort features 1- to 4-bedroom villas and a variety of activities for guests to entertain themselves whether they’re on a micro-cation or staying for a longer visit. For example, guests can swim with the area’s famous pigs, snorkel throughout the coral reefs, go on a boat excursion, take an ATV tour of the main island or feed stingrays and iguanas.

To further entice travelers to book a micro-cation at Grand Isle Resort & Spa, the property is currently offering a variety of special savings. Visitors traveling now through Aug. 19, 2019 can take advantage of the Splash Into Summer promotion offering 20 percent off the room rate, roundtrip airport transfers, complimentary daily breakfast, and access to a complimentary golf cart throughout their stay when booking a minimum of three nights. For minimum 4-night stays booked by June 30 for travel Aug. 18 through Oct. 31, 2019, there’s the It’s Never Too Early for Fall promotion, offering daily breakfast for two people per bedroom and a complimentary half-day swim with the pigs excursion also for two people per bedroom. Lastly, the ongoing Last Minute Escapes promotion offers 15 percent off the room rate and a $150 resort credit for a minimum 2-night stay with a 1-night deposit required at booking.
