Bahamas at a Glance
Varied, exciting and exotic, the Bahamas have an island right for everyone.
The Bahamas have some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean. Get up close and personal to schools of colored fish and beautiful, brightly colored corals. Visitors also enjoy kayaking in and out of little bays, sailing and of course, surfing.
For your time on the beach, bring insect repellent, but don't let the no-seeums scare you away. The Bahamas are famous for their smooth, pink beaches. Head down at twilight when the light from the setting sun illuminates the sand with its rosy glow.
Finally, you won't want to miss learning about the Bahamas's colorful history. A long-time haven for pirates, smugglers and rum runners, the islands have always had a ruckus side. Dig in deep and enjoy.
