The Bahamas

Made up of more than 700 islands and cays, it’s incredibly easy to get lost in The Bahamas. All boasting fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean, a luxury holiday full of sun, sea and sand is just a plane ride away.


For couples wanting a romantic getaway or families on the hunt for a child-friendly destination, the Bahamas has it all.


The Bahamas also has fantastic watersports on offer for those wanting to ride the ocean waves. From jet skiing and kayaking to motorboats and fishing, you’re certainly well catered for. Alternatively, grab your mask and flippers and dive under the waves to discover the depths of the sea. Explore the vast coral reefs and observe the magical marine life by snorkel or accompanied with a scuba tank for the more advanced.


Aquaventure Waterpark is a great destination for the whole family with plenty of slides and pools to provide hours of entertainment. Less than an hour from Nassau, the park can be found on Paradise Island where you’ll also find the commanding Atlantis resort.


Stingray Adventure, just a 25-minute boat ride from Nassau, is great for animal lovers or those wanting to experience marine life in its true habitat. With tour guides sharing their extensive knowledge, you may even be lucky enough to touch and feed these majestic creatures for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


However, for an animal encounter like no other, Pig Beach is a number one must-visit. Swim with the island’s most famous residents and be sure to capture it all on camera – we bet the Instagram likes will come rolling in. A three-hour boat ride from Grand Exuma may seem a little tedious, but we promise it is totally worth it.


For those wanting to adventure on land, Lucayan National Park has fantastic caving and hiking day tours that are just a 25-minute drive from Freeport. With experienced guides indulging you in Bahamian secrets, this is an ideal day trip for nature enthusiasts and intrepid explorers.


Want to see how the locals live? A 10-minute drive from the Western Esparade of Nassau sees a plethora of independent vendors and barbecue joints known as Arawak Cay. Make sure you go down on Sunday where the atmosphere is electric with local music and the sounds of laughter.


For a spectacular evening dining experience, locals and guest alike can’t recommend Café Matisse enough. Situated in the capital of Nassau, Italian cuisine is served with island flair. With a seasonal menu, we bet you’ll want to go back again and again to try it all… you have been warned.


WINGED BOOTS WISDOM


For those celebrating Christmas in the Bahamas, make sure you extend your visit to New Year as the 26th December and 1st January sees the island indulge in Bahamian culture with Junkanoo. Originally celebrating the only two days slaves had off each year, the streets throughout the islands are full of parades, artists and performers – it’s a sight to behold, but to really soak up this experience make sure you visit Nassau where everything is bigger and better.
