Bahamas holidays

A dreamlike archipelago of turquoise, white and green gracing the northeast Caribbean Sea

A former haven of pirates, smugglers and rum-runners, the Bahamas has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Caribbean. Enjoy long days below the surface as tropical fish swim by, kick back on powder-soft sands, go island-hopping to explore this beautiful archipelago of 700 islands and perhaps experience the charming swimming pigs on Pig Beach. Spend a week or two here and adjust to the islands' three paces of life... slow, stop and reverse, and enjoy the hedonistic, manmade delights of Paradise Island.

  • The Bahamas offers some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, with turquoise waters and soft white, pink and gold sands
  • Deep-sea diving amongst spooky shipwrecks and reefs teeming with brightly coloured fish; and kayaking around some of the 2400 cays, making unforgettable experiences
  • The historic capital of Nassau is a wonderful place to explore, where charming Georgian architecture stands pretty in various shades of pastel
  • The exclusive surrounds of Paradise Island – home to an array of resorts such as the world-famous Atlantis, Paradise - boasting its own waterpark, aquarium and casino
  • The city of Freeport is a shopper’s paradise, with designer and boutique stores, as well as a world of Bahamian arts and crafts. This makes for a perfect day trip with plenty to see and do, and with an array of restaurants and bars – why not enjoy the evening here too.
