Bahamas, Caribbean

A favorite Hemingway haunt, the Bahamas
are an easy-going collection of 700 beautiful islands rimmed in soft white sand and surrounded by translucent turquoise waters boasting 60-meter visibility. The archipelago is home to an exquisite barrier reef, fabulous fishing, warm smiles, and luxurious beach retreats perfect for a relaxing escape.

So what’s in it for travelers?

There’s sailing around the Abacos’ history-filled Loyalist Cays. Partying til dawn at Paradise Island’s over-the-top Atlantis resort. Diving the spooky blue holes of Andros. Kayaking the 365 Exuma Cays. Lounging on Eleuthera’s pink-sand beaches. Pondering pirates in Nassau. There’s a Bahamian island to match most every water-and-sand-based compulsion, each framed by a backdrop of gorgeous, mesmerizing blue.
