There are many girls on the island that set up on the beach ready to braid your hair with beads. I took on this experience and it was fun and the girls are very talkative. They are not only good at it, but very fast. What a job? Where do I sign up for that position - beach all day, doing hair, meeting new people and get paid (pretty good) for it!
This may sound like a stereotype, but it is quite true that many of the people you meet in the Bahamas who live there are very laid-back and relaxed, and take their time getting things done, so don't expect things to get accomplished quickly. That is why this is a great vacation place for rest and relaxation!
