    You can't beat the Bahamas. Only a quick flight from Florida the Bahamas has some of the most beautiful water on earth. Be sure to visit the out islands to experience a less touristy version

    The Bahamas are lovely, whether you are visiting Nassau, Freeport, or some other remote island. There is a lot to do from water activities to dining and nightlife. Nassau has a large casino called Atlantis, as well as a dolphin discovery center that is worth visiting.

    Out of all the beaches that I've seen in the Caribbean, the Bahamas has one of the best and most pristine beaches. The sand is white and the water looks like some dipped chlorine into the sea.

    People were too pushy about buying their goods. Wasn't as beautiful a paradise as other islands.

    Spent the best week of my life with my hubby on a cruise ship to the Bahamas. Went snorkeling and swam with the sting rays. The Islands are beautiful and the water is so blue and so clear. I never wanted to leave.

    Overrated in my opinion. I've been to Nassu, Freeport, & San Salvador. None of them really wow me. Nassu has casinos, so if you like to gamble then your in luck. People are ok, some are really pushy, but not jerks like the people from the US Virgin Islands.

    Spent 4 lovely days on a resort before spending a week in Miami. Gorgeous weather for December, loved swimming in the ocean. The people here are so friendly.

    The weather is nice and the food is great. People here are laid back for the most part and I fell in love with a local drink called Junkanoo. Allegedly its names after a guy names John Canoe.

Description

Travelers aren’t the only ones who consider The Bahamas’ sapphire-blue waters and powdery sands to be a paradise – developers, cruise lines, gamblers and entrepreneurs have all identified this Caribbean nation as a vacation Mecca. Despite the high prices, more than five million people visit the islands each year, and with good reason – the 700-plus islands that form this chain are home to some of the world’s finest white sand, brightest coral and best beach activities. The three main islands are Grand Bahama, New Providence Island and the aptly named Paradise Island. Grand Bahama is regaining momentum as an ecotourism destination, and many of the Out Islands offer an off-the-beaten-path experience, as the tourist infrastructure isn't quite as polished. Beaches aren’t all there is to do here, as exotic tropical wildlife and exploration of the interiors of the islands are both popular activities. Hotels tend to be on the expensive side, but, then again, people come here knowing that their wallets might be a bit thinner and their bellies a bit rounder after all the cracked (deep fried) conch and fruity drinks (complete, of course, with little paper umbrellas). ... read more
