The Bahamas – Vacation in the Caribbean
The fabulously beautiful beaches are Bahamas' biggest asset and the main tourist attraction. Many of them are regularly ranked among the most beautiful in the world in various prestigious surveys. Another incredible number of no less beautiful and completely deserted beaches are hidden on romantic atolls and islands. One of the most famous beaches is Pink Sand Beach on Harbor Island, as one of the few is covered with pink sand. Equally famous are Cable Beach with white sand near Nassau or Lucaya near Freeport.
Also important are the beaches on Grand Bahama Island - Gold Rock Beach and Paradise Island, where one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, Atlantis Resort, is located. Paradise Cove at Reef Deadman is about 15 miles from Freeport town center and is one of the few places where you can snorkel on a cliff next to the beach. Another place to snorkel is the small island of Peterson Cay, located just a mile from the south coast of Grand Bahama. It is one of the smallest national parks in the Bahamas and can only be reached by boat. Memories of a lifetime will be taken away from the Dolphin Experience Lagoon, where you can snorkel among dolphins and in the open ocean.
And what to do on the islands besides diving, snorkeling, swimming or fishing? One kilometer west of the center of Nassau you will find the beautiful Ardastra Gardens, which is one of the great area attractions. After booking a visit, the garden staff will pick you up at the hotel and take you there free of charge. The gardens are no larger than 5 hectares, but more than 300 animals live here. They represent a wide range of Bahamian fauna. The flamingo march, which takes place three times a day, is locally famous. About 30 or more flamingos listen to orders and march in harmony with the music. Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas. The architecture professes the Caribbean style, but there are also certain features of Americanization. Nassau is also associated with industry and commerce. Visitors can also visit the Pompey Museum or the Junkanoo Museum.
At the end of the summer there is a period of hurricanes, which sometimes move around the extreme islands. The best months to visit are from January to June and then November and December. So just so we can travel indefinitely again.
