If you are planning your next vacation destination and are considering taking a trip to the Bahamas, we are here to share why this is a great idea. We have put together this short guide to share the top reasons a Bahamas vacation is a perfect choice.
Read on to learn why you do want to visit the Bahamas.
1. Diverse Water Sights
Although the Bahamas is relatively close to Miami (only about an hour away), the water here is some of the clearest water in the world. If you love snorkeling or scuba diving, then these waters are a water lover’s paradise.
The marine life is colorful and beautiful to explore while you are out snorkeling or diving. One popular water attraction is in Exuma island, where you can swim with pigs. You don’t only have to watch them swim on their own, you can swim right beside them because they are used to swimming with tourists.
2. The Beaches
If you are a beach lover, then trust us, the beaches in the Bahamas are a must-see. They have light powdery sand in most of the beaches that you can enjoy between your toes.
Some beaches like in Harbour Island have pink sand. They believe that the reason for the pink sand is the broken coral pieces from the reefs have given the sand this pinkish hue. You won’t experience a sunset mixed with this pink sand anywhere else.
You can have a picnic at the beach or hire a private chef experience to cook for you and your family on the beach. You can read more about this and other ideas on what to do at the beach here.
3. Delicious Food
Who doesn’t enjoy tasting food from other cultures? The cuisine in the Bahamas won’t disappoint. The food here is a combination of styles from the Caribbean and South America.
They have also mastered how to cook the national food of the island, conch. You can taste anything from conch pizza to conch soup, and conch fridge. There are endless restaurants to choose from, including inside the luxury hotels or local mom-and-pop restaurants.
If you are a real foodie, we recommend visiting during one of the food festivals. The Bahamas hosts multiple food festivals through the year, where you can taste a wide variety of popular dishes.
4. Go Island Hopping
Another reason to visit the Bahamas is that you can island hop because the islands are clustered so closely together. Each island is unique and will offer its own experience. For example, Inagua will allow you the opportunity to immerse in wildlife, while Cat Island will give you the opportunity to explore historical sites.
