Leisurely, lovely, and outright fun, The Bahamas delivers a steady stream of sun-filled days and glittering nights. When you want to get into non-stop action – or get away from it all – The Bahamas has an island for you!
A series of over 700 islands and more than 200 cays just off the east coast of Florida, The Bahamas plays host to adventure seekers and tourists looking to escape into the beauty of the Caribbean. All powdery sand and endless beaches – and barely rising above sea level – the islands of The Bahamas are a popular, affordable, and easily reached retreat.
Beyond the sands are the sophisticated pleasures of New Providence (home of Nassau, the capital, and popular Cable Beach), Paradise Island, and Grand Bahama, where glitz, gambling, top cuisine, great golfing, nightclubs, and world-class spas are found.
Nassau is the seat of Bahamian culture, history, and shopping. Packed with colonial charm, it offers the closest thing to an urban experience and is an ideal base for day trips to nearby Paradise Island and many of the quieter Out Islands. Neighboring Cable Beach is a glittering strip of hotels, restaurants, and casinos.
Paradise Island’s many resorts mark it as an adult playground, albeit one where Bobby Flay, Nobu Matsuhisa, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten rule the culinary roost. Their home is The Atlantis, certainly the most over-the-top resort in The Bahamas (and one you must see to believe).
Grand Bahama’s Freeport and Lucaya resort areas are ideal for families, with broad beaches, challenging golf courses, out-of-this-world scuba diving spots, and plenty of water sports excitement.
There are fewer crowds on the sultry Out Islands, such as Abaco, Harbour Island, and Long Island, partly because of their lack of accessibility. Many are reached only via boat, but these are really theplaces to get away from it all.
When people say “It’s better in The Bahamas,” they know what they’re talking about!
