• BAHAMAS

WELCOME TO THE BAHAMAS

The Bahamas archipelago is an ecological oasis sprinkled over 100,000 square miles of ocean, starting just 50 miles off the coast of Florida. It comprises 700 breathtaking islands, over 2,000 rocks and cays, and boasts the clearest water on the planet—with a visibility of over 200 feet. You can see your toes as easily as you can the world’s third largest fringing barrier reef.

TOURISM AND CULTURE

We invite you to explore all of our islands. One step and you’ll realize our beauty extends far beyond our extraordinary natural wonders. It’s the smiles on the faces of the Bahamian people. The unique sounds of our rich culture. The warm hospitality of our heritage and our colorful history.

GETTING THERE

The Bahamas’ proximity to Florida means regular, relatively inexpensive flights from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, as well as other East Coast gateways. A few airlines fly directly to airports on the larger Out Islands, but the majority of flights arrive in Nassau or Freeport where passengers will connect to another flight before continuing to the Out Islands.

Walk for the Cure: Governor’s Harbour

October 26, 2019

Set up on the beautiful island of Eleuthrea, those visiting the Bahamas can register to join the race and support The Cancer Society of the Bahamas. You’ll also get to run, or walk, around the beautiful island, and is there a better way to spend the morning?

TOURISM UPDATE

After Hurricane Dorian came through, a lot of the nation had to shut down. However, one by one the islands are opening back up for business! Hotels and resorts are re-opening and beaches are getting cleaned, just waiting for visitors.
