Bahamas Backpacking

The Bahamas is much more of a luxury vacation spot than a backpacker's destination with cheap lodging or food and just about anything inexpensive is hard to come by. Some of the more remote areas do have comparatively low priced guesthouses catering to surfers, fishermen on a budget, students or even backpackers. Such lodging includes Hoopers Bay Villas on Great Exuma, Surfer’s Manor and the inexpensive Surfer's Haven Guesthouse (both in Gregory Town on Eleuthera). The Towne Hotel in Nassau provides urban backpacker digs for 20€ per person in a triple room, which is not exactly the price of a typical hostel, but by Bahamian standards is pretty cheap.
