Of the 700 islands that comprise the Bahamas, roughly 30 are inhabited. Still, there are countless cays and sandbars beyond that, all ripe for exploration. This is a “choose your own adventure” destination where the island you land on will inform the type of experience you have. Of course, the life aquatic is always on the horizon with the unbelievably crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea swirling to and fro across the shallow basin.
The Abacos and Out Islands are a boater’s dream where you can spend an entire day island hopping. Go flats fishing in Andros, swim with pigs in Exuma, delight in conch plucked freshly from the sea in Bimini, sunset gaze with a craft cocktail in hand in Eleuthera. Wherever you are, it won’t take long before you realize you’ve arrived in paradise. Read on for the very best things to do in the Bahamas.
