If you’re planning a Bahamas getaway, this guide gets you in the know and in the mood. You’ll practically feel the sand between your toes and the sea breeze brushing your face. Find out about hot spots, like the well-touristed Nassau, Paradise Island, and Freeport/Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island, and less-visited islands like the Exumas and Abacos that are perfect if you want serious R & R. This guide covers:

  • An overview of Bahamian customs, music, festivals, cuisine, and “thirst-busters”
  • Accommodations ranging from simple Bahamian inns and guesthouses to mega-resorts, and from quaint gingerbread villas to a spectacular beach resort with a kids’ camp
  • The best places for all kinds of water sports, including water skiing, banana boat rides, Jet-Skiing, sailing, and parasailing
  • Snorkeling and scuba diving, including dramatic reef trips, shark dives, shipwreck dives, and even night dives
  • Fishing for wahoo, blue marlin, oceanic bonito, blackfin tuna, snapper, grouper, barracuda, dolphins, and more
  • Great places to stay and play if tennis or golf is your game
  • Gambling at glamorous casinos and taking in great stage shows
  • Shopping for international imports of china, perfume, crystal, gemstones, or watches
  • A calendar of events including festivals, tournaments, and local holidays
