With an elixir of life that’s centred on the spectacular blue waters of the Caribbean, The Bahamas are also a glossy rich playground of world-class golf, tennis and spa indulgences.

"700 islands and cays and over 1000 dive sites scattered over 100,000 square miles of Atlantic Ocean – this, is The Bahamas."

Of all the Caribbean islands, The Bahamas probably boast more beaches than the rest of the Caribbean put together, but because they are a little more developed, appeal to many who want a little more than one deserted beach after another.

Nassau is on the high-octane side of things: a favourite stop-off for cruise ships, rammed with colourful locals and hotspots for those who like a touch of decadence and where anything from super casinos to deserted pink-sand beaches can be found.

Creating special moments

  1. Island Hopping

    Island Hopping

    Take a powerboat cruise to one of the many private islands in the Exuma chain, leaving from Nassau via Allens Cay (where you can feed the iguanas), and over to Ship Channel Cay – you may even find a cocktail waiting!

  2. Ben’s Cove

    Ben’s Cove

    The Bahamas are home to Ben’s Cove, part of the world’s longest underwater cave system within Lucayan National Park. It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we suggest you also take the rickety boardwalk over to Gold Rock Beach.

  3. Great Smokes

    Great Smokes

    If you’re a bit of a cigar aficionado, pay a visit to the Humidor Churrascaria Steakhouse on the grounds of the Graycliff Hotel and watch the torcedores roll hand-dried tobacco leaves into premium stogies.
