Fall in love with The Islands Of The Bahamas. With 16 main islands to choose from and hundreds more islands, islets and cays, there’s no shortage of special locations for your wedding and honeymoon.
Wander hand in hand along miles of pink sand beaches on one of the deserted Out Islands, such as Eleuthera & Harbour Island or Cat Island, before retreating to an exquisite waterside cottage. The islands of Andros, The Exumas and The Abacos have some delightful boutique hotels, often with their own little spa, and can be reached by inter-island flights and even sea-planes that can land at the shore. Check into one of the luxurious resorts in the capital Nassau, nearby Paradise Island or Grand Bahama Island which boast some of the world’s most glamorous casinos, restaurants and spas, you can live the high life by the beach. For thrills and spills of an aquatic nature visit the Caribbean’s largest waterpark Aquaventure and the marine lagoon at Atlantis Paradise Island where you can rise early and see the dolphins before breakfast, or spend a day with dolphins and sea lions over at Blue Lagoon, just a short ferry from the mainland.
Surrounded by the clearest crystal ocean the watersports are, naturally, second to none, with magnificent snorkelling, diving, sailing and fishing. Calm waters are ideal for paddling a kayak made for two. Determined to take that special selfie with the famous swimming pigs? Find them in The Exumas, Rose Island off Nassau, The Abacos and Spanish Wells.

After a day of action or lazing in the sun welcome the sunset with local cocktails such as the Bahama Mama or Goombay Smash, a homemade Switcha lemonade or the local Kalik and Sands beers are real thirst quenchers. No visit to the islands would be complete without tasting some of the local seafood and fish dishes such as a spicy conch salad or grilled grouper served with fresh coleslaw and peas ‘n’ rice, maybe followed by a guava duff – the Bahamian version of jam roly-poly pudding. Ideal preparation for a night of entertainment or simply gazing at the stars where they seem so much bigger in the clear bright night skies.
