When it comes to new experiences, you’d like to jump in with both feet. And at the Bahamas, whether it’s posing with porpoises in Dolphin Cay or plunging into pirate hideaways like Fort Fin-castle; whether it’s reef-diving or parasailing, you want to do it all. Grab a hold of any of these one-of-a-kind adventures and make your next vacation the best one yet. Let’s learn a little bit about the place, shall we?
The Bahamas is a coral-based archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, comprising 700 islands and cays that range from uninhabited to resort-packed. Scuba diving and snorkeling sites include the massive Andros Barrier Reef, Thunderball Grotto (of James Bond fame) and the black-coral gardens off Bimini.
Hilly Nassau is the capital and largest city of the Bahamas. It lies on the island of New Providence, with neighboring the Paradise Island accessible via Nassau Harbor bridges. A popular cruise-ship stop, it’s known for its beaches and coral reefs, destinations for diving and snorkeling. It retains many of its characteristic pastel-colored British colonial buildings, including pink-hued Government House.
Usually, cruise points to the Bahamas are Miami, Orlando, Baltimore and New York. Budget is not an issue though – there are cruises for all ranges. The northernmost, Grand Bahama, and Paradise Island, home to the sprawling Atlantis resort, are among the best known resorts and lodging spots.
Diving is a favorite activity among many, and the Bahamas offer an array of diving experiences like no other destination in the world. Moreover, there are many water sports for people of all ages to try. And if you’re one of those trying to make your vacations most adventurous and exciting, snorkeling, scuba and snuba are the things you should definitely put on your list.
Ecotourism is another pleasant thing to do when with the family. And at a time like this, that’s almost noble to do!
That apart, there’s tons of shopping to be done, and sea food to be eaten, all ensuring that you go home with a lifetime’s worth of memories!
Hope you know where you’re going this coming summer
