Situated to the southeast of Miami, The Bahamas has long been a popular destination with sun seekers and it's no surprise that so many people choose this long-haul destination as a one of their favourite holiday spots. Made up of more than 3,000-odd islands, islets and cays, this Caribbean paradise has gained recognition across the world as a top holiday destination. And it is not hard to see why.
Spend just a bit of time letting the warm, turquoise waves of the Caribbean lap over your toes while the soft sand kisses the soles of your feet and you will soon come to realise why this part of the world attracts so many visitors on long-haul holidays. The capital city of Nassau can be found on New Providence Island and here visitors will find a high-tempo pace of life that they might not have expected. There's colour, noise, entertainment and shoppers aplenty in Nassau and it can come as a shock to visitors who have become used to a slower pace of life on the beach.
A long-haul Bahamas holiday is often described as an adventure, due to the fact that there really is so much to discover here. Outside of the obvious beach activities, visitors who choose to explore deeper will find everything from forts and plantations to museums and remote villages, where you're really going to get a feel for Bahamian life. There are over 100 species of birds living on the islands, including the Bahamas parrot, and not surprisingly wildlife is a big draw for many visitors.
Accommodation is plentiful across the islands and despite The Bahamas' reputation as an expensive destination, you are sure to be able to find something to suit, whatever your budget.
