What we know as “The Bahamas” today is actually an archipelago that is made up of 700 islands in various sizes, pretty amazing right?! Of those 700, only about 30 are actually inhabited, but what that means is that the Bahamas are full of untouched, gorgeous, raw and beautiful beaches to explore. Your vacation can feel like you’ve rented a private island all to yourself or you can experience all the pampering and luxury a gorgeous resort has to offer; either is possible when you visit the Bahamas! From adventure, to relaxation and tons of photo-worthy spots in between, the Bahamas is a captivating place that should be your next vacation! 

ESCAPE TO A PRIVATE (OR NEARLY PRIVATE) BEACH

As you wander through the particular islands like Eleuthra, Harbor Island, Great Abaco and Exuma you will discover that there are times when you literally have the beach to yourself or maybe one other family! Have the luxurious experience of having a beach completely to yourself when you visit the welcoming and tropical oasis of the Bahamas. Tahiti Beach in Abacos, Pink Sands Beach of Harbor Island, Tropic of Cancer Beach in Exuma, and Lighthouse Point in Eleuthra are some of the world’s most beautiful beaches that you can explore! 

SWIM WITH THE PIGGIES

Where else in the world can you swim with pigs? Or did you even know that pigs can in fact swim?! Yup! On the island of Exuma, on Pig Beach, are the infamous swimming pigs. You can have a once in a lifetime experience swimming, hanging out and even feeding these furry friends. What better photo opportunity then hanging with a cute little snouted friend?!

STAY AT A LUXURY RESORT

If you’re looking for a tropical holiday where you can relax and unwind and enjoy the finer things in life, then the Bahamas is definitely a great spot to visit! Throughout the islands there are plenty of luxurious resorts to experience, from the largely famous Atlantis Resort to the small and intimate private stays on Harbor Island and Exuma. You won’t have to go far to have all the things you’re looking for – breathtaking views, deliciously fresh cuisine, tasty drinks, and relaxing spa treatments – all wrapped up in one beautiful package in the Bahamas.

STRADDLE THE ATLANTIC AND THE CARIBBEAN

Located on Eleuthra is the amazing Glass Window Bridge. Eleuthra divides the Atlantic from the Caribbean, and you can see for yourself the crazy difference between the two bodies of water. The Bridge allows you to literally straddle the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean and take in the beauty of the deep cool waters of the Atlantic and the bright warm turquoise of the Caribbean at the same time, pretty neat. 

WALK IN THE PINK SAND

The Bahamas are known for their pink sand beaches. While not all the Bahamian beaches have pink sand one of the most famous ones are Pink Sands Beach on Harbor Island. You won’t believe how gorgeous the soft pink sand is against the turquoise water of the Caribbean; pictures don’t do it justice! 

GET ADVENTEROUS WITH WATERSPORTS

Maybe you’re looking for a little adventure while on holiday. The Bahamas is the perfect place to get in touch with your adventurous active side. Snorkel with the colorful fish, Jet Ski, swim, take a catamaran tour, or charter a private boat for the afternoon. The ocean is your playground here in the Bahamas. 

The Bahamas offer so much beauty, serenity, and fun for all those who visit its islands. From the soft pink sands of Pink Sands Beach to the adrenaline-pumping boat rides and waterslides of Nassau, you can have exactly what you’re looking for on your next vacation. The Bahamas is truly a little piece of heaven on earth that is worth exploring again and again, so what are you waiting for?
