Ah, the Bahamas. The name alone conjures up blissfully clear waters, warm white sands, and coral reefs teeming with underwater life. But the more than 700 islands and coral reefs that form the Bahamas vary dramatically from one another. Some are busy and modern, while others are uninhabited and tranquil. Despite their differences, however, things you can count on from holidays in the Bahamas include relaxed vibes, abundant fresh seafood and jaw-dropping natural beauty.
Bask on the beaches you’ve always dreamed of
The beaches of the Bahamas are the stuff of tropical daydreams. Travellers seeking lively all-inclusive holidays in the Bahamas will love Cable Beach on New Providence Island, a bustling 6.5 kilometre (4 mile) strip lined with big hotels, restaurants, shops, bars and watersports vendors.
If you have a quieter holiday in mind, head to Stocking Island in the Exumas or Treasure Cay in the Abacos to enjoy glittering white sands and sparkling waters without the crowds.
Enjoy more than just lounging on the beach
With countless exhilarating activities on offer to fill your days and nights, all-inclusive holidays in the Bahamas aren’t just about lazing on the beach.
For instance, you can snorkel in the black-coral gardens off the coast of Bimini, or enjoy wildlife viewing and hiking in Lucayan National Park, then shop for cheap Bahamas souvenirs in the duty-free shops of downtown Nassau. At night, head to a glamorous casino or nightclub, or just watch the sun set from a casual beach bar with a chilled beer in hand.
Feast on the islands’ rich cultural heritage
Bahamian culture is a fascinating mixture of African, European and Caribbean Creole influences. An example of a great evening might involve listening to a performance of traditional ‘rake n scrape’ music, which is created using homemade instruments, while dining on conch, a sea snail used in all kinds of Bahamian dishes, and sipping on creative rum-based drinks.
Trying to settle on one island in the Bahamas for your Caribbean getaway is no easy task – there’s some 700 to choose from and each seems more impressive than the last. Our handy guide is here to help.Read moreabout Which is the best island in the Bahamas?
