If you think of a holiday in the Caribbean, the Bahamas is usually one of the first destinations that spring to mind. The former British colony has become synonymous with pristine beaches and all-inclusive resorts. From the air, the chain of 2,000 islands and coral cays that compose the archipelago look almost too good to be true. Brilliant aqua hues encircle the creamy sand beaches and emerald vegetation making the Bahamas a masterpiece in the Caribbean Sea. Touch down at one of the three major airports, Lynden Pindling International Airport, Grand Bahama International Airport or Marsh Harbour International Airport and you’ll be greeted with nothing but sunshine and lively calypso music playing in the distance. A holiday in the Bahamas is all about leisure. Pre-book your Bahamas airport transfer and hoppa will have you relaxing on the beach in no time.

The Bahamian beaches are consistently some of the most beautiful in the world. Clear waters and soft-as-silk sand beaches are everywhere in the Bahamas so finding the perfect beach just depends on what you’re looking for. If you want to be where the people are, then the commotion of Cable, Cabbage and Xanadu beaches will appeal to you. For more secluded, hard-to-reach beaches check out Tahiti, Ten Bay and Pink Sands beaches and Cat Island. For ideal snorkeling conditions bring your gear to Stocking Island. Besides the breathtaking beaches the island is known for its coral gardens and blue holes.

If you set up basecamp on one of the most popular islands, Grand Bahama, Paradise or New Providence, you will be close to all the action. Grand Bahama is home to underwater caves, national parks and botanical gardens, making it an ecological playground, perfect for hiking and nature tours.

Paradise Island is most famously known for its over-the-top-Atlantis Casino and Resort, which provides a huge array of suites, villas and condos for guests to choose from as well as an exciting waterpark and marina home to numerous restaurants and stores.

Right next door to Paradise is New Providence Island, home to the capital city of Nassau. The colonial buildings in Nassau are splashed with bright Caribbean pinks, blues, yellows and greens, which make this small city all the more inviting. For a pop of culture and history spend the day touring through, the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, the Pirate Museum, Fort Fincastle and the eclectic Old Town. Right outside of Nassau is the glittering shoreline of Cable Beach, and with its golden sands and assortment of bars, casinos and restaurants it’s the place to see and be seen day and night.

Spread across the many islands are opportunities to enjoy water sports and other activities galore, such as; bonefishing, deep-sea fishing, island boat tours, kayaking and kite boarding. Go snorkeling and scuba diving on the massive Andros Barrier Reef and admire the diverse marine life swimming and scuttling below the waves. No holiday in the Bahamas would be complete without a dolphins encounter. Swimming and playing with friendly dolphins will be the highlight of your trip and something the kiddies will always remember.
