Where to Stay in The Bahamas

May 25, 2017 | By |

Most accommodation options in The Bahamas are beachfront, and range from boutique hotels to all-inclusive luxury resorts offering every possible amenity. Choose your home away from home!

Sandals Resorts
When exotic luxury is within reach, so is paradise. Find your slice at all-inclusive adult-only properties like the sophisticated, European-style Sandals Royal Bahamian, located on Nassau’s Cable Beach and boasting its own offshore island, or the serene and secluded Sandals Emerald Bay in the enchanting Exumas.

British Colonial Hilton Nassau
Located in the heart of all the action, near Nassau’s port, duty-free shops and downtown attractions, this family-friendly resort features a private white-sand beach, a freshwater pool, WiFi, water sports, bars and dining. It also comes with exclusive added values as part of our Spotlight Collection.

Meliá Nassau Beach
Discover this modern resort on Cable Beach, with features as grand as its design and upgrades to The Level available for extra pampering. Three freshwater pools, WiFi throughout the resort and on the beach, and seven restaurants – one for every day of the week: all the right ingredients for a holiday in the Bahamian capital!

What to Do in The Bahamas

May 25, 2017 | By |

Endless Beaches
Imagine powdery white sands caressed by the bluest waters, all framed by towering palms and the Caribbean’s lush greenery… Sound like the perfect beach? You’ll find plenty here that are populated with sun seekers, or secluded and just waiting to be discovered.

City Sights & Cultural Corners
Explore Nassau’s history at Fort Fincastle and the Queen’s Staircase, discover Junkanoo music at Educulture Museum and sample signature Bahamian cuisine at Arawak Cay’s seaside Fish Fry. With chocolate and cigar factories, a history museum and artist studios, Graycliff Heritage Village also makes for a fun-filled day trip.

Paradise Found
Get yourself an Aquaventure day pass and discover the world’s largest marine park, located at Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. It features a thrilling water slide and a mile-long river ride with high intensity rapids, as well as the Atlantis Aquarium, offering rock climbing and encounters with marine animals, including dolphins.

Historic Great Exuma & Little Exuma
Venture to George Town, in Great Exuma, to visit Wenshua Art Gallery, the Straw Market and St. Andrew’s Church. In Little Exuma, see what remains of an old cotton plantation, or head to the Salt Beacon and Tropic of Cancer Beach. The Hermitage and Steventon are home to historic tombstones and the golden statue of Pompey.

Exploring the Exuma Cays
Sail along the beautiful waters of the Exuma Cays. Visit Thunderball Grotto, swim with nurse sharks on Compass Cay, feed iguanas on Leaf Cay, watch the famous swimming pigs on Big Major Cay, and dive for gigantic starfish at Star Fish Bay. Go snorkelling and enjoy a picnic on a secluded beach, too!
