Pleasure's world... The Resort Islands of the Bahamas At HarbourIsland, a 30-minute flightfrom Nassau Summer is a particularly lovely time to visit the Bahamas. Everything conspires to lead you down the palmy path to carefree laziness . . . the benevolent breezes of the Trade Winds, the incredibly transparent seas, powdered-sugar beaches. But there's excitement, too. The sport ashore and afloat is superb. Sightseeing enchants, the night life sparkles. Rates are especially attractive from mid-April to mid-December.
