What to do in the Bahamas?
Bust out the sun hats, flip flops and bikinis. It’s time to banish the winter blues with a trip to the Bahamas! There are 700 islands and 2,400 cays to explore here, with stories of pirates and rum smugglers to inspire. Whether you’re looking for a party at the glamorous Atlantic resort or a secluded strip of pink sand on Eleuthera, the Bahamas has something to suit everyone’s tastes.
Touch down in Nassau for a spot of shopping before you hit the beach. This city is known for its duty-free goods, from jewellery to perfumes, rum cakes to coins. If you’re looking for the A-crowd, New Providence is the perfect choice. The buzz of Paradise Island and Cable Beach will keep you busy for days! Hoping for a Robinson Crusoe adventure? Wander the lonely cays on Exuma, or give kayaking, kite-boarding or sailing a try.
The Bahamas enjoys 320 sunny days a year but winter is by far the best time to visit, between December and April, for delightful days warmer than 20°C.
