Explore Bahamas

The Bahamas - although technically part of the Caribbean – consists of more than 700 magnificent subtropical islands and 2400 cays, most of which are deserted and are surrounded by spectacular coral and fathomless ocean trenches. From the grit and bustle of trendy Nassau to the giant mangroves of Andros, there's an incredible assortment of beaches, reefs, forests, and old villages to discover, all within an hour's flight.

The Bahamas is an unavoidably expensive destination, but whether sailing around the history-filled Loyalist Cays of the Abacos, partying at Paradise Island's Atlantis resort, swimming with wild pigs, or lounging on Eleuthera's pink-sand beaches, there's likely a Bahamian island to match almost every water- and sand-based compulsion, all framed by a backdrop of gorgeous, mesmerizing.
