The quiet coves, sheltered bays and peaceful beaches of the Bahamas draw visitors from all over the world in search of secluded, intimate surroundings. There are over 700 islands in total, covering 150,000 square miles of tropical sea and approximately 5,000 square miles of land.
The unspoiled coastal stretches are a haven of tranquillity and the clear, turquoise waters that surround are home to ancient shipwrecks and coral reefs brimming with all types of fish. The waters are ideal for a variety of water sports including diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing and parasailing.
The islands have flat coral formations with some low rounded hills. The bustling markets offer spices, ceramics, handicrafts and local art. There is also the chance to play a round of golf on a world-class golf course with amazing ocean views.
Music is a great passion of the people on these islands with the many bars and clubs pumping out island rhythms, from goombay and calypso to Junkanoo beats. There are also dance festivals that mix African slave-trade rituals with Bahamian tempo and American hip-hop twists.
Each island in The Bahamas has its own character and something different to offer. Nassau is a cosmopolitan island with duty free shops, golf, museums and restaurants. About 60% of the Bahamian population live here. Economically, it is the most important island and home to its capital, Nassau, the seat of government. Nassau is a charming old hillside town overlooking the sea.
Long Island is home to a multitude of deserted beaches for sheer tranquil bliss. The wreck sites off the coast of San Salvador are wonderful for diving and exotic wildlife can be admired in Inagua National Park. There is something for everyone on these islands making the choice of which to visit a very difficult one.
