Sea for two... The place is Sandy Cay, a secluded islet just off Nassau's eastern shore. Unofficially it's known as Honeymoon Island. It's easy to see why. Maybe there is another place that has this perfect blend of deep-blue skies, graceful coconut palms, untracked sands and fantastically transparent water. But if there is, it must be in the Bahamas-the blissful world of some 700 islands and cays lying just across the Gulf Stream from Florida. Rates are especially attractive from April 24 to mid-December. See your Travel Agent. Or write Dept. JP, Bahamas Development Board, 608 First National Bank Building, Miami 32, Florida.
