Whether you are escaping the winter snows or it is your summer vacation, the Bahamas is a must-destination. There are myriad activities available in and out of the water with oceanfront homes making it easy to indulge. Indoor and outdoor gourmet kitchens offer preparation of sensational meals. Private beaches, barbecue decks, and fitness rooms keep your itinerary full.

Beaches in the Bahamas

The first stop after reaching your destination is heading to the beaches. With nearly 2,000 waterfront accommodations in the Caribbean, the waves will be lapping at the door. Soaking up sun will produce an incredible tan along with plenty of relaxation. Take a swim morning, noon, and night as the warm waters wash over you. This trip will give a whole new meaning to the term white sand beaches.

Goombay Nightlife

A visit to the Caribbean island of the Bahamas is filled with plenty of Calypso music. It can be heard in the day, but more so in the warm evening nights. Parties dart the beaches up and down the shoreline with barn fires cascading off dancers. There are local hotspots that will be easy to find just follow the music and crowds. During the night out, enjoy the local dishes and delicacies such as conch.

Water Sports Paradise

For starters, some of the best wind-surfing in the world is in the Bahamas. Deep water fishing is another favorite with big game fish catches such as swordfish and Mahi-mahi. This is not a catch and release atmosphere so prepare for the best seafood dishes in the world. Every form of water vessels are available including kayaks, jet-skis, and more. Stay close to the shore with snorkeling or go farther out with scuba diving excursions.

Golfing Bonanza

With plenty of sunshine and warm weather, golfing on a variety of world-class courses is a daily activity. Golfers can experience exquisite fairways at each of the following:

  • Treasure Cay Golf Club: As one of the oldest courses on the island, this stunner set the trend for exceptional golfing in the islands. Since 1968, this par 72 stretches nearly 7,000 yards surrounded by native foliage and blowing ocean breezes. Take up a game anytime with no tee time restrictions.
  • Ocean Club Golf Course: Tom Weiskopf designed this spectacular course with uniquely shaped sand dunes and fairways. Each of the 18 holes makes it a challenge for golfers to hit the par 72 standing. This will not present a problem with the sparkling Atlantic motivating them at every turn.
  • The Abaco Club at Winding Bay: Located on the out island of Great Abaco, this pristine beauty showcases the Atlantic at each tee. This regulation course has 18 daunting holes that truly make it a day of golfing in the Bahamas. There are 7,182 yards of Scottish inspired golf basking in the sun with crashing waves 60 feet below the fairways.

Bask in the Caribbean Warmth

The Bahamas is located near the equator, which translate to a year round summer climate. Bring your favorite shorts, tees, sundresses, and sandals. Do not forget the shades, swimsuits and SPF tanning lotion either. However, with the great island shopping venues, you will surely find some incredible duty free buys.

There are Plenty of Ways to Get There

Go by water with yachts that have private slips or marina docks waiting. Cruise ships are one of the most popular means to getting to the island. A flight from a variety of countries lands at the international airport. Once there, rental cars will help you cover the beautiful landscape.
