Flamboyant. Vivid. Peaceful. The bucket-list Bahamas stimulate every sense.
Pristine beaches, film-set caves and secret coves. Wide shallows where flamingos and dolphins mingle with swimmers. National parks ringing with rare, exotic birdsong. Folklore of rum smuggling and pirate adventures. World-class golf courses and the exotic music and food of Junkanoo Carnival. The Bahamas is a vast and varied archipelago of 700 islands and 2400 cays of unparalleled natural beauty.
Cruise on your private yacht and drop anchor to dive the blue holes of Andros; take on the role of a modern day Robinson Crusoe on your own private island, but equipped with every luxury for survival; kayak along any one of the 365 Exuma Cays; walk along Eleuthera’s rose-sand beaches; sail around the Abacos’ history-filled Loyalist Cays; try some world-class scuba diving or a Nassau SUB to see exotic fish; compete with your kids at sport fishing, jet-skiing, kayaking, paddle-boarding or fun-tubing; hear tales of swash-buckling pirates from local historians; head to Arawak Cay for ‘fish fry’, a neighbourhood party with food and reggae in seafood shacks and daiquiri bars; explore the islands on horseback; take a good camera to Golden Rock beach at Lucayan National Park where Pirates of The Caribbean was filmed; get a selfie with the famous swimming pigs; go overland ATV trekking; dine at elegant restaurants before dancing at lively nightclubs on Grand Bahama.
