Luxuriate at a beachfront resort as you play in the surf, dance to the rhythms of steel drums and soak up the local nightlife on these tropical islands.

With its more than 700 tropical islands scattered around the Caribbean region, The Bahamas offer a postcard-perfect destination. White-sand beaches and translucent turquoise water attract visitors from around the world. The capital, Nassau, is a fascinating cultural hub. Dance to Junkanoo rythms, savor cracked conch or play dominos with locals in the diverse city. Whether you’re looking to spend a week relaxing at a luxury resort or exploring Nassau’s local culture, The Bahamas are a great family-friendly destination.

Once a pirate haven, The Bahamas have a colorful history often overlooked for involvement in the beach culture. Spend time to discover the colonial history that has defined Nassau. Visit the Pirate Museum to understand the lawless existence of the seafarers who once dominated the Caribbean and the role the British had in driving them from the area. Climb the Queen’s Staircase to reach Fort Fincastle and take in panoramic views from the Water Tower.

New Providence Island’s Cable Beach offers excellent, child-friendly swimming conditions and a range of accommodation options. Cabbage Beach, on nearby Paradise Island, is home to many of The Bahamas’ larger resorts, including the iconic Atlantis Paradise Island. Here you can spend the day playing at the Aquaventure water park or the Atlantis Aquarium.

Exploring The Bahamas is easy when based in the Nassau area. Many attractions are located within the city’s old town and can be reached on foot, including Retreat National Park and the Arawak Cay Fish Fry, a great place to try the local seafood dishes The Bahamas are known for. Buses serve other areas of New Providence and Paradise Island, while ferries and charter boats at Nassau Harbor go farther afield.

The Bahamas are located just 187 miles (300 kilometers) southeast of Miami, and are easily reached by plane and boat. While there are more flights in the winter peak season, some prefer the slower pace of local life off-season for a relaxed and more affordable tropical getaway.
