Islands of The Bahamas

Bahamas IslandsThe Islands of The Bahamas lie in the crystal clear, offshore sailing waters of the Gulfstream, only 70 miles from Miami and the east coast of Florida.

The seas are teeming with game fish. The beaches are clean and many still deserted. The golf courses have no wait tee-offs. Its easy to get to... many air carriers and fast ferry boats provide daily service to Grand Bahama, Nassau and several of the Out Islands. There are dozens of international flights/day from the USA and Europe. So, what are you waiting for?

The Bahamas features world-class accommodations, diving, fishing and vacationing with many historic sites and interesting destinations. Find out more by selecting an island in the menu at the left or exploring the topics below.

Cat Island

Cat Island BahamasWith a skinny, eel-like shape, Cat Island, Bahamas, is only a few miles wide and 77km (48 miles) long. It's a lush, sleepy island in the southern Bahamian backwater, a great place to get away from it all. Cat Island has an estimated population of 1,647. The main settlements are Arthurs's Town, Orange Creek and Port Howe.

   

Eleuthera

Tourists in EleutheraEleuthera means "freedom" - freedom from crowds, cruise ships, casinos, and the chaos of everyday life.

Long and slender, this Bahamian island has remained largely undeveloped and untainted.BonefishingIt is a gem in the Bahamas archipelago with miles of soft pink-sand beaches and clear, shallow turquoise waters on the western side. Ragged, wave-hewn cliffs from the Atlantic ocean crashing into the rocks offer a different atmosphere on the eastern side.

 

Exuma

Just 56km (35 miles) southeast of Nassau, this 588km (365-mile) long string of islands and cays - most of them uninhabited - is the great yachting hub of The Bahamas, rivaling or even surpassing Abaco.
