Exuma: The Exumas are a string of islands stretching through the Southern Bahamas. Great Exuma is the largest of these islands and its greatest appeal is its relative lack of tourists and commercialization. This factor makes the island attractive to many celebrities who live a major part of their lives in the spotlight. The island also offers some of the best sailing in the world, great fishing, spectacular beaches, luxury hotels, gourmet dining and friendly, down to earth locals. Many magnificent coral reefs are located in this part of the world making snorkeling and scuba diving an incredible experience as well.....read more about Exuma »

Flamingo Bay: Unlike many Caribbean destinations, Flamingo Bay is not densely populated and does not play host to an endless number of tourists. Life in and around the bay is serene and relaxed, yet there is still much one can do. There is a view of Stocking Island which can be accessed by kayak or other boat. Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy the excellent bonefishing nearby. If a game of golf is more your speed, a visit to the Greg Norman golf course is in order. Located up the coast at Emerald Bay and designed by the golf legend himself, this 18-hole championship course is one of the best ocean-side courses in the world.....read more about Flamingo Bay in Great Exuma Bahamas »

Harbour Island
Harbour Island is less than 4 miles long and a 1/2 mile wide. Its long wide beach is famous for its hard-packed pale pink sand. The likes of Fodors and Conde Nast rate it as one of the "best Bahamas beaches." The beach, combined with some great restaurants, hotels and vacation home rentals, makes Harbour Island a destination of choice amongst Bahamas enthusiasts. It's no surprise to find a few "rich and famous" there -- they know they won't be hounded.....read more »

Bahamas Vacation
How do you describe the perfect vacation? Tropical weather, warm ocean waters, white sand beaches, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and plenty of attractions and activities? How about resort accommodations, scuba diving, snorkeling, sunset cruises, Calypso music, deep-sea fishing, and an up-close encounter with dolphins? If this sounds like the perfect vacation to you, you can find it all in the commonwealth.

Located in the Atlantic, just northwest of Cuba and southeast of Florida, the official language is English and American currency is equal to Bahamian currency so you don't have to worry about exchanging money. Originally settled by the Taino people in the seventh century, these islands continue their ties to seafaring travelers and the ocean with a number of Nassau attractions and Freeport, Bahamas, activities....read more »
