Located only 50 short miles from the coast of Florida and consisting of over 700 islands, the Bahamas are the definition of paradise. You'll find flamingos, dolphins, even swimming pigs, and the world's largest open-air marine habitat. The most popular time to visit is December - April, and tropical storm season is August - November. Though there's a chance of weather, prices will be less expensive during that time. We recommend booking for May - July as it will be less crowded and chances of a hurricane are slight.
Nassau & Paradise Island
Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas as well as the port of call if you're cruising. Until 1718, its population consisted mainly of pirates, which are the inspiration for the widely popular Pirates of Nassau experience. Nassau's 2-mile-long Cable Beach is another big draw for tourists, as well as nearby Paradise Island. Paradise Island is home to Atlantis, a unique, ocean-themed resort built around a 141-acre waterscape comprised of over 20 million galls of lagoons, pools, and habitats for its 50,000+ marine animals. Resort features also include 30,000-sq-ft Mandara Spa, Atlantis Casino, Education Center at Dolphin Cay, and 40 different restaurants and lounges. Luxury resort options include The Cove at Atlantis and The Reef at Atlantis.
Grand Bahama Island
Grand Bahama Island is home to Lucayan National Park, which includes a six-mile-long charted underwater cave system, one of the largest in the world. There are nature trails, boardwalks, and picnic areas along the beach. This island is also where you'll find the country's most upscale golf courses.
The Family Islands
Abaco, Eleuthera, and Exuma make up the outer islands of the Bahamas. With footprint-free beaches and ultraexclusive resorts, these islands are perfect for a more secluded and sheltered experience. Here, nature outnumbers man, pigs swim in turquoise water, and private homes host some of the world’s most famous celebrities.
