The Bahamas is an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean made up of more than 700 tiny islands, some of which are populated by friendly locals and offer exclusive resorts, while some are remote and remain unpopulated.
The country is best known for its stellar beaches, which that can be found on many of its heavenly islands, islets and cays, their fine, pale sand will feel soft between your toes, while the clear warm waters make swimming in the sea an absolute pleasure; as such, holidays to the Bahamas are ideal for snorkelling amongst abundant exotic marine life.
You can experience the natural beauty of the Bahamas up close at the Predator Lagoon aquarium, and explore further afield by taking a boat tour of the islands, which range from exhilarating powerboat rides to leisurely charter trips that transport you to secluded beaches.
Ecotourism is a big deal in the Bahamas, with many resorts having been awarded the Blue Flag for their commitment to the coastal environment, making their beaches particularly attractive.
Guides will escort you to the Blue Holes National Park, where you can see incredible geological formations, as well as the local iguana population.
You can see colonies of West Indian flamingos in the southernmost district of Inagua and try to spot the elusive Bahama parrot on the Abaco islands.
Bahamas Food & Drink
Bahaman cuisine is made up of many spicy, rich dishes based on seafood, pork, potatoes and rice. Some of the finest examples served in generous portions at resorts around the country, where chefs are trained to the highest standards and prepare the most spectacular feasts.
As well as traditional fare, many hotels and restaurants you will encounter on holiday in the Bahamas also serve European favourites, delivering a gourmet experience in the most spectacular of locations.
Harbour Island, renowned for its pink sand beaches, is the perfect destination for a day trip, while the historic Spanish Wells district on St George's Cay is well worth seeing, with its wealth of colourful colonial homes; the nearby Preacher's Cave is where the first colonists lived after being shipwrecked.
To see some fine examples of local plant life, a trip to the quiet island of Eleuthera is a must, while the Bimini islands are the home of the legendary Fountain of Youth.
