Bahamas - An Introduction

It’s been more than 20 years since I first visited the Islands of the Bahamas. I fell in love with them then and I’m still in love with them today. Time and again I return to Nassau and the Out Islands and I continue to be inspired by their great natural beauty and overwhelming atmosphere of peace and contentment. There’s truly no other place on earth I’d rather take a vacation. The Bahamas have everything from bustling international cities – not too big, not too small – to tiny islets where it seems no human has every set foot. The weather is sometimes wild, but not for long. The gentle sea breezes, the hot sun, and those vast stretches of shallow, emerald water bounded by blinding white strips of sand are irresistible.

About The Bahamas

The Bahamas, some 700 islands and 2000 islets, lie scattered like a broken string of pearls across the northern Caribbean and offer literally thousands of opportunities for vacation and adventure. In fact, they have provided a dozen or more generations of seafarers and travelers with more adventure than many of them might ever have imagined, or wanted.

Today, more than 3.5 million travelers visit the Bahamas each year. They arrive by small boat, big boat, cruise ship and jet plane. Some are so taken with the incredible beauty of these islands they stay for months, sometimes for the rest of their lives.
