Picture this…

Beaches beyond perfection, leaning palm trees and cocktails out of coconuts. Make footprints in the powdery white sand, swim in an underwater paradise as you snorkel through the Caribbean sea, and lounge around in a hammock soaking up the sun. This destination is a dream come true – you may have to pinch yourself once or twice to see if it’s real! You’ll know what we’re talking about when you witness the white, golden, and often pink sands. The glittering Caribbean waters are so blue they can even be seen from space – and the waterfront restaurants and bars are calling your name, too!

Fifty miles off the coast of Florida, The Bahamas is composed of 700 islands with a different adventure waiting for you on each one. The largest of the 26 inhabited islands, Andros island, is surrounded by coral reefs – making it all the more beautiful. There’s more than meets the eye in this underwater paradise with tropical fish and unique mollusks, it’s the ultimate snorkeling destination. It’s a tropical island playground!

Nassua and Paradise Island are travel hot-spots – with laid back vibes and endless opportunity, these are the best places to sample the island life. Diving is a huge part of the Bahamas’ lifestyle with opportunities to explore ship wrecks and interact with aquatic wildlife. Nassua is also the most popular port in Caribbean – so whoever you sail with, you’re sure to stop by this idyllic location.

Famous for…

Swimming pigs – yes, you did read that right! The Bahamas is known for its pig beach on the uninhabited island of Big Major Cay, and trust us, it’s a real treat. In fact, many people often travel here purely for this reason. The legend is that sailors attempted to leave the pigs on the island as a source of food – instead, their ship sank – leaving the pigs to swim to safety. Either way, the pigs are now well looked after and you can enjoy the day there at your own leisure – the kids will love this wacky experience!

The Bahamas has its very own distinctive cuisine, known especially for its conch salad – which the locals call ‘fresh, sexy conch’ – so prepare to sink your taste buds into this tasty dish. Conch is everywhere in The Bahamas –  this large marine snail is a mouthwatering seafood special, and can be cooked in almost anything. Of course, this destination was once a key pirate location – and everyone knows they washed everything down with a bottle of rum. So it’s only tradition that you take full advantage of this islands history and do the same!

Speaking of pirates, you may have heard of Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard. Legends tell us that in the late 17th century, Nassau was a prime hot-spot for our one-eyed friend. Like us, the pirates loved nothing more than feeling the sea breeze and sun on their face, lounging around in a hammock and drinking all day. It was a pirates dream – and we can see why they battled it out over this tropical delight.
