Our Islands – The Islands of The Bahamas
We were born here and delight in sharing the unknown wonders of The Bahamas with first-time guests, repeat visitors, and native Bahamians alike. With more than 700 islands scattered across 200,000 square kilometres of ocean, The Bahamas is many destinations in one. Yet, regardless of which island you travel to, the warmth of the Bahamian people always outshines the bright Caribbean sun.
NASSAU AND PARADISE ISLAND
New Providence Island offers the temptations of the capital city of Nassau and the appeal of Baha Mar. To the north, Paradise Island offers the excitement of the fabled city of Atlantis. Together, they provide a blend of history, gambling, golf and recreation along with some of the best beaches in the world.
A nonstop mix of music, casino gambling, and nightlife will keep you entertained and endless beaches will keep you serene. Few places offer such a paradoxical combination of sophistication and unspoiled charm. Attractions include a massive underwater cave system, wreck diving, and the oceanfront Lucaya district of Freeport.
Pristine and undeveloped, Andros has the third-largest barrier reef on the planet and is the world’s bonefishing capital. Its deep, blue holes are the hiding place for the secretive sea creature, Lusca, but you will easily catch sight of thousands of species of wildlife on its deserted beaches.
Just 80 kilometres from the coast of Florida, Bimini is known for its significance as a rum-running port during Prohibition and as Ernest Hemingway’s favourite escape. Notable guests have included Jimmy Buffet and Martin Luther King, Jr., who wrote his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech here.
The stunning turquoise waters of the exotic Exumas beckon you to visit posh resorts and undiscovered coastlines. When you arrive, pigs swim out to greet you along with a dolphin or two. Kick off your shoes, because the vibe is easy going and the mood is relaxed.
This is a boater’s paradise whether you are under sail or under power. Step back in history at quaint colonial towns, step up to the challenges of a championship golf course, or step onto the one of the world’s top beaches. Or simply get in step with one of the many festivals, including the Guy Hawkes Competition on Green Turtle Cay.
ELEUTHERA AND HARBOUR ISLAND
The pink sands, Loyalist architecture, and serenity are quintessentially Bahamian. Ranked as “the Best Island in the Caribbean” by Travel and Leisure magazine, Eleuthera offers the sincere friendliness that is the hallmark of the Bahamian people.
