Blessed with calm warm aqua waters, fine pink sandy beaches scattered with pretty sea-shells it’s not hard to imagine why the Bahamas attracts an abundance of very wealthy people. The Bahamas is made up of approximately 700 islands and the laid back pace of life is easy to fall into whilst still offering enough to cater for everyone’s tastes, there is shopping at the busy straw market, world class golf courses, an abundance of underwater activity from scuba diving the coral reefs to exploring one of the many shipwrecks. The Bahamas has also got a great reputation for its sailing regattas which are held yearly, the cooling trade winds make this a prime area for all sailing enthusiasts. Make it the holiday of a lifetime and swim with the dolphins in their natural habitat, feel the true gentleness of these amazing creatures, try the speed boat trip to adventure island, ideal for the family, watch graceful stingrays and groupers or if you’re really brave you could try your hand at feeding the sharks and barracudas. The Bahamas is the dream location for honeymooners or anyone wanting to get away from the rat race and relax in paradise, there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
Like most of the Caribbean islands seafood features highly on any menu in the Bahamas, try conch, red snapper or crab with a side order of rice and peas. If you fancy something more upmarket then there are plenty of restaurants offering a varied choice from Italian, Chinese and American to local cuisine. Price wise it is not as expensive as you may think, prices are very reasonable, watch out for the house specials where you can get two meals for the price of one.
