The name 'Bahamas' comes from the Spanish baja mar meaning shallow sea, and is an archipelago of over 700 islands stretching over 258,998 square km in the western Atlantic Ocean. With each island in The Bahamas offering something different, your best plan is to hop on a plane or push out a boat and visit as many as time allows. Sample city living, island-style, by spending a few days in cosmopolitan Nassau with its duty free shops, golf, museums and restaurants. If it's romantic seclusion you're after, lie back and relax on the pristine white sand of Long Island's deserted beaches. If you're looking for adventure, experience the dive of a lifetime, exploring challenging wreck sites off the coast of San Salvador, snorkeling the clearest waters in the world or taking up the local sport of bone fishing. Get closer to nature and hop over to Inagua National Park to witness the unforgettable spectacle of nesting flamingos and other exotic wildlife. And if you've come in search of paradise, charter a sailboat and indulge in a blissfully tranquil voyage through the Exumas' 160 km-long string of pristine cays. Wherever you go you'll enjoy a welcome that's as warm as the tropical climate and hear stories that are as rich and colourful as their culture.
