With some 700 tropical islands, the magical Bahamas can offer you whatever kind of Caribbean holiday you want.
For sheer contrast and diversity it’s hard to beat The Bahamas. The 700 islands and thousands of cays span some 750 miles, so there’s plenty of space. And there are many different styles to The Bahamas. There’s the glitz and glamour of Atlantis with its casinos and gourmet restaurants, or there are the sleepy Out Islands with their laid back vibe and some of the best beaches and coves in the Caribbean. There is just so much to see and do in The Bahamas, from wreck diving to shopping for designer goods and everything in between. But whatever kind of holiday you have here, you are guaranteed the warmest of welcomes and a truly memorable stay.
Out and About
Swim with wild pigs
For one of the most unique experiences in the Caribbean, head to Pig Island (or Big Major Cay as it’s officially known), to swim with the wild pigs that live there. The animals are thought to have been abandoned on the island by sailors and, having escaped the cooking pot, can now be seen frolicking on the beaches and basking in the sunshine.
Explore the Out Islands
Paradise Island is where it’s all happening, but do take a trip over to some of the tiny Out Islands and experience the slow pace of life and chilled out vibe. With so many islands to choose from it’s hard to pick a favourite, but we love the Exumas. The bright white sand of the deserted beaches contrasts with the deep aquamarine of the water, making this chain of islands and cays one of the prettiest in The Bahamas. Then there’s exclusive Harbour Island with its three and a half mile stretch of picture-perfect pink sand beach and great restaurants. We suggest you do some island hopping in the Out Islands and make up your own mind.
Bahamas below water
This is a truly magnificent place to snorkel in the shallows, but if you pull on some scuba gear and go deeper you’ll rub shoulders with the many sharks (of the harmless reef variety!), dolphins and rays that are found all around these islands. For those divers who come to The Bahamas for adventure, some of the most challenging cave and wreck diving on the planet can be found here.
Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre
In the heart of downtown Nassau, this is a great family day out. The five and a half acre park is part jungle, part gardens and home to hundreds of beautiful mammals, birds, and reptiles from around the world, including many endangered species from The Bahamas and the wider Caribbean.
Food and Drink
You’ll be totally spoilt for choice when dining out, with restaurants to suit every mood and occasion. The Poop Deck, with its motto “You pick it, we cook it”, is fantastic for fresh fish. For more formal dining, Dune at One&Only Ocean Club and Graycliff in Nassau are renowned for their world class cuisine, or try the gourmet Caribbean menu at Simmer Down on Cable Beach. If you’re on Harbour Island and want to eat island food with the locals, Queen Conch is a little gem. Expect a rustic Caribbean setting, but you won’t be disappointed with the wonderful conch salad.
There are regular non-stop flights from the UK to Nassau, or daily departures via Miami. Connecting flights to the Out Islands are available from Nassau and Miami. Flying time from Heathrow to Nassau is 9 hrs 30 minutes.

New Year’s Junkanoo
Head to Nassau’s Bay Street in the early hours of the morning on the 1st January to witness the uniquely Bahamian festival of Junkanoo. Thousands of people line the streets to welcome the first dawn of the New Year and to watch the parade of brightly costumed people dancing to the sounds of cowbells, drums and whistles.
