Holidays In The Bahamas
Bahamas holidays are among the best that the Caribbean
has to offer if you’re looking for variety in this colourful region. Stretching alongside the east coast of Florida
down towards the large islands of Cuba
and the Domincan Republic
, the tropical beauty of The Bahamas are a commonwealth nation of 29 islands and several thousand cays and islets. The Bahamas are perhaps the archetypal Caribbean holiday destination; named after the shallow waters of the chain, it is a paradise dotted with desert islands and long stretches of reef-encircled, pink-sanded beach.
For many, the Caribbean begins with a holiday in The Bahamas. After all, we know that Christopher Columbus’s first landfall in the "new world" was on the island of San Salvador (though historians aren’t in agreement whether this is the modern day island of this name, or one of its neighbours). Though Columbus left without making a permanent mark on these islands, the rest of history ensures that there is plenty to see and do. The Bahamas were the haven of Blackbeard and subsequently, the British; both piracy and colonial history inspire modern day attractions including monuments and museums.
Luxury Bahamas Holidays
First and foremost however, luxury Bahamas holidays are about exploring overwhelming natural beauty. The beaches are precisely what travellers expect of the region and the coral reefs ideal for divers of all proficiencies. Activity above the water is also world class: kayaking, water skiing, jet skiing, windsurfing and fishing are all popular among locals and tourists alike. Grand Bahama is the ideal island for those who want to see this side of the Caribbean, with nature centres and national parks on land.
The islands of The Bahamas each have an individual character worthy of discovery. The capital islands are New Providence and Paradise Island, and it’s here that you’ll find many of the casinos and duty-free shopping malls. The Aquaventure water park is an essential for families and thrillseekers of all ages.

Things to Do on a Bahamas Holiday
With simmering sun-drenched beaches, serene cerulean waters and a stunning tropical climate it should come as no surprise that many of The Bahamas’ finest activities revolve around outdoor pursuits. Kite boarding, scuba diving and snorkelling are just a few of a huge variety of diving locations that guests can enjoy on a Bahamas holiday, while the less energetic visitor can simply soak up the sunshine on one of the islands' fantastic beaches.
As the saying goes, when the sun goes down, things heat up in The Bahamas. With so many bars and live music clubs, as well as two of the largest casinos in the Caribbean, no wonder The Bahamas are also known as Las Vegas on the beach.
Away from the coastline, visitors can learn a little more about the history and culture of the tropical destination on a tour of Nassau City or check out the huge variety of local wildlife housed in the Ardasta Gardens Zoo and Conservation Park. For an excellent view of the island, head to the top of Blackbeard's Tower; legend has it that it was built by the pirate himself. Historians (aka party poopers) may doubt the authenticity of this juicy little anecdote, but don't let that put you off enjoying the view of one of the Caribbean's finest destinations.
