A series of more than 700 islands, the Bahamas is blessed with powdery-white sands, endless beaches and shallow turquoise waters. Packed with colonial charm, Nassau is the heart of Bahamian culture, history and shopping. Party in the adult’s playground of Paradise Island or try your hands at scuba diving off the coast of Grand Bahama. Spend a day on Harbour Island and marvel at the pillow-soft Pink Sands – easily one of the best beaches in the Caribbean.
