With an archipelago of over 700 islands showcasing limestone-white sands, a kaleidoscope of blues merging the sea and sky, and an average of 340 sunny days a year, The Bahamas is a reliably stunning luxury travel destination for all. Families can swim with dolphins, couples can enjoy rock lobster and rum at a bohemian beach bar, and friends can go glamorous with shopping, nightlife and casinos.

Capital city Nassau combines urban hustle with easy tropics with its gritty history, ingrained culture, beautiful gardens and happy locals. For a more relaxed beat, Paradise Island lies to the north and lives up to its name with iconic hotels including the One & Only Ocean Club.

The calm waters and warm breezes of The Abacos make this 120-mile-long chain of islands a boating and sailing hub. Those who prefer dry land will find championship golf courses and pretty colonial towns on Green Turtle and Elbow Cays.

On Eleuthera and Harbour Island, pineapple fields, white-and-pink sand beaches and secluded coves await, along with an intriguing step-back-in-time as much of the architecture and way of life was influenced by British Loyalists who settled here in the 1700s.

Freeport, on Grand Bahama Island, makes for a cultural and ecologically captivating haven with its picturesque fishing villages, Lucayan archeological sites, one of the world’s largest underwater cave systems, and three national parks.
