The Bahamas are made up of 700 islands and cays spread out across the northern region of the Caribbean. Of these, 14 are considered to be the main islands and the focus for most holidays in the Bahamas, where you can enjoy almost every conceivable water sport, from diving and snorkelling to cruising and parasailing.

New Providence, home to the lively capital Nassau, is where most people live. The resort areas around Cable Beach and Paradise Island offer luxury accommodation, casinos, restaurants, nightlife and of course superb beaches.
Grand Bahama is the most likely alternative destination, with most visitors heading to Lucaya, a seaside suburb near several beaches and some sophisticated all-inclusive resorts. To avoid the crowds travel to the Out Islands though.
Andros, the largest island in the Bahamas, has great snorkelling at its barrier reef - the world's third longest - as well as in its blue holes. Bimini and Berry Islands on the other hand provide excellent deep-sea fishing and the opportunity to swim with dolphins, while Eleuthera has probably the most unspoilt beaches in the country, including the famed Pink Sands Beach.
The Bahamas offers a huge range of hotels and resorts for travellers seeking secluded beach retreats for their luxury holiday.
