Things to see in The Islands

The Islands Attractions


The islands of the Bahamas are alive with marine life, culture, and beauty. The only difficult decision is which island visitors should choose! Apart from the tourist stalwarts mentioned below, the Bahamas boasts many other island gems.

The Ragged Island chain, an enduring favourite with fishermen in search of prey like barracuda, tuna, snapper and king fish, as well as travellers seeking unspoiled, empty coastlines. The little Rum Cay, in the south of the archipelago, offers pristine coral reefs, good surf and even some historical ruins.

San Salvador is known for its Christopher Columbus memorials and shipwrecks, while Inagua is a flamingo hotspot home to more than 80,000 of the bright and beautiful birds. Cat Island remains a virtually untouched slice of Bahamian paradise.

Many travellers choose to explore the islands by chartered boat or cruise ship. Others settle at a resort on one of the popular, more developed islands and take excursions to nearby cays from their home base. The resorts and cruise liners offer many excursions and activities to patrons as part of package deals, but it is easy to travel more independently and organise trips to various islands on a whim.
