The Bahamas, an archipelago of about 700 islands, extends over an area of about 760 miles in the north Caribbean. Bahamas vacations offer tourists the opportunity to explore some of the rich colonial history of the Bahamas deriving from British culture, history, and tradition. You’ll be delighted to find a range of great foods to tempt the palate, including the region’s celebrated seafood. In addition to local tastes, Bahamas music offers a mix of Caribbean styles, including Calypso and steel drum bands. Major Bahamas vacation destinations include Nassau, Grand Bahama Island with Freeport, and the Out Islands that are popular with sailing enthusiasts. The capital city of Nassau is located on the island of New Providence, the largest of the many islands in the Bahamas. It offers a variety of historical attractions and outstanding beaches. Grand Bahama Island is a small town setting with several natural wonders – underwater cave systems, three national parks, outstanding beaches and diverse marine life. Freeport offers the second most popular destination, featuring top-notch beaches, casinos, nightlife, and world-class scuba. The Out Islands are truly unique – no cruise ships, high-rise hotels or crowds – and perfect for those who wish to experience a more authentic Caribbean island experience. Eleuthera offers a variety of accommodation possibilities, from simple cottage rentals to high-end condos – great alternatives to the larger Bahamas vacation resorts.
