The Bahamas archipelago comprises over 700 islands and 2000 cays which are studded with idyllic white sand beaches, clear blue waters, coral-fringed coasts and unspoiled natural landscapes. Though the country is located in the Atlantic Ocean, it is often grouped under the Caribbean islands due to its similarity. Along with pristine natural landscapes, the country is also known for its interesting pirate history, former British rule, delicious cuisine and underwater activities. It is also a popular holiday retreat for the wealthy and you will find several luxurious resorts, villas, dining options and even private islands.
Capital Nassau is the only city in the Bahamas and is located on New Providence island. Packed with tourists and with a bustling cruise port, Nassau is the most popular destination in the archipelago. In Nassau, you can relax on the white shores of Cable Beach, visit the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, stroll through streets lined with British era buildings and enjoy first-class shopping and dining. Foodies can check out Arawak Cay’s seafood restaurants (also known collectively as “Fish Fry”) for the best dining experience in the city. Paradise Island is about 5 km away from Nassau and is connected by two bridges. Staying true to its name, the island is a paradise for beach bums, featuring excellent white-sand beaches, a water park, and the world-famous luxury resort, Atlantis Bahamas known for its amazing parties.
The Bimini islands are located just 80 km off the coast of Florida, US and are famous for the mysterious Bimini Road (also known as Bimini Wall), an almost 1km long underwater rock formation. Many believe the road is connected to the lost Atlantis City of Greek mythology. Don your diving suit and you can investigate the mystery by yourself!
Blue Holes National Park in the North Andros island is known for its exotic bird population and blue holes, of which Captain Bill’s hole is easiest to access. The Andros islands are also popular for bonefishing, snorkelling and diving and house an extensive coral reef system teeming with marine life.
The Exuma Cays group is known for the world’s first Land and Sea Park. The park is surrounded by enchanting clear blue waters that are a favourite spot for diving and snorkelling and the Staniel Cay is famous for its swimming pigs.
