Bahamas Destination

Spanning 750 miles and with some 700 tropical islands, the Bahamas offers a Caribbean adventure that can be as relaxing or high octane as you want. Whether you choose to bask on stunning beaches, indulge in the glamour of Paradise Island, sail to the dreamy Out Islands or swim with dolphins, simply sip a Bahama Mama and contemplate your next move. There are heady days, tropical nights, steel drum bands, sumptuous roast conch and dancing until the early hours. There are also soothing spas, blissed-out beach bars, hidden lagoons and satin soft sands.

Formerly home to the legendary Blackbeard, the capital city Nassau is full of pastel pink shops, Georgian architecture, tree-lined streets and fish fry shacks. The local taxi drivers will happily take you to see all the sights, and a trip to Ardastra Gardens to see the pink flamingos and honey bears is a must. Paradise Island’s iconic Atlantis resort is a destination in itself, with a breathtaking aquarium housing over 50,000 marine animals and a spectacular waterpark. Where else could you find Japanese fine dining at Nobu alongside white sand beaches, championship golf, Las Vegas style bars and a huge all-night casino? This is fantasy filled fun under Bahamian sun.

For a once in a lifetime experience, take a swim in the crystal clear waters of the Exumas with the wild pigs that reside on Big Major Cay, where these friendly animals will piggy-paddle alongside you for a unique photo opportunity. If you're looking for something more luxurious, charter a yacht to the stunning Out Islands of the Abacos, where you can fish, dive and snorkel in brilliant blue waters, and spend a night anchored at beautiful Treasure Cay Beach enjoying seafood, sundowners and star gazing. Harbour Island's three miles of dreamy pink sands, horseback riding and 'Current Cut' dive site are a huge draw, and on secluded Eleuthera you'll taste some of the sweetest pineapple in the world and sunbathe on exceptional beaches. Dive into freshwater blue holes amongst myriad tropical fish on Andros Island, or swim with dolphins off the sugary white sands of alluring Blue Lagoon Island.

Dining under the Bahamian sunset is something rather special. Enjoy the avant-garde cuisine of Dune at One&Only Ocean Club and sophisticated Graycliff in Nassau, or for a succulent serving of local life try the Wednesday night Fish Fry at Smith’s Point, with 'rake-and-scrape' music and delicious fried snapper. We also recommend The Poop Deck’s fresh fish catch, with their motto 'You pick it, we cook it'. The beauty of the Bahamas is that there really is something to suit everyone.

Exploring the Bahamas...

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.

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.

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.

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.
