The Bahamas are the completely stereotypical desert island paradise. These tropical islands are one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, and with their idyllic beaches, wooden huts and picturesque jetties, it isn’t hard to see why. The islands and their impressive Bahamian hotels are located just off the coast of Miami, and enjoy the kind of heat you’d expect along with that.
Places to stay and see
The islands can boast some of the most impressive tourist facilities in the world, so you won’t find it tricky to get the right accommodation for yourself. Here the hotels are made up of all-inclusive resorts like Memories Grand Bahama Beach and Casino resort where you will scarcely have to leave the complex, as well as large sites like Coral Beach Hotel and Condos where they have all kinds of accommodation. For something a little more secluded, you could try the private villas of the Shannas Cove Resort, where privacy and space are the name of the game.
Things to do
Choose to stay in the Bahamas on your lastminute.com holiday to enjoy a range of activities and attractions in the sun. One of the islands’ most impressive sights is Atlantis, on Paradise Island. The pink resort recreates Atlantis in the form of a hotel, and comes complete with its own shark-infested ornamental pool. Alternatively you can visit the Grand Bahama. Not only does it have some great package deals on stays there, but it also hosts a market by the port where you’ll be able to grab jewellery and other great souvenirs for home. Once you’ve gone for a quick shop you’ll be able to explore the cave systems below the island, or even venture into one of the three national parks to see the impressive native birds.
Within the western-most districts of the Bahamas you will find Bimini. The island has an interesting history, playing host to Earnest Hemingway during his writing career and even being said to inspire some of his books. It’s hardly surprising in this gorgeous setting, on what has been called the Big-Game fishing capital of the Bahamas. The island itself is extremely close to the USA, only 45 miles from the coast of Miami and consequently is a big hit with American fishers, seeing the fishing tournaments attract huge amounts of attention. If you want to simply take a dip and explore the water, that’s easy too, with plenty of diving and snorkeling instructors on hand. The island also has popular dolphin and shark dives available, if you’re feeling brave.
