Things to do - general

Welcome to the Bahamas!

The Bahamas is a collection of 700 sparkling islands sprinkled over 100,000 square miles of ocean starting just 50 miles off the coast of Florida. The archipelago of the Bahamas 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 barrier reef.

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.

Nightlife info

Throughout the islands of the Bahamas, you can find charming bars serving up our traditional Goombay, Junkanoo or Rake & Scrape music, as well as posh nightclubs and everything in between. Enjoy a tropical Bahamian cocktail while you try your hand in a casino, or enjoy the sounds of live music in a bar or club. And, on some islands you can sit on a beach and watch a bonfire under the full moon.

Culture and history info

Even the most experienced explorers have gotten lost in the abundant natural beauty of the Bahamas. For centuries, our islands captivated settlers, traders and invaders, while our shipping channel enchanted pirates who quickly discovered all of our great hiding places. To this day, there are still tales of treasure. However, the real treasure is our people. Bahamians may live for today, but we never forget our past.
