Off the coast of Florida lay a relaxed archipelago made up of over 700 distinct islands, and 2,000 rocks and cays covering 100,000 square miles of ocean: the Bahamas. As everyone knows the best way to experience the Bahamas is to play Assassins Creed: Black Flag on the PS4. Except it’s not, because the best way to experience the Bahamas is to binge watch the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Except that’s not true either, because the very best way to see the Bahamas is to jump on a plane and visit.
Words cannot clearly define the magic experience of standing on a white sand beach, staring out over the clearest ocean water in the world, sipping a cocktail while a cool breeze tousles your hair. Close your eyes for a moment and try to imagine the warm sand between your toes, the sound of the ocean against the shore, and seabirds flying overhead. Now stop that because you’re wasting your time. No matter how great your powers of imagination, they are not able to compare to the actual experience of standing on the beach on Nassau, snorkel gear in hand, getting ready to slip into the warm waters.
With 700 islands, each with their own distinct personalities, and populated by unequivocally the coolest people on the planet, a holiday in the Bahamas offers relaxation and adventure in equal measures. There is nowhere in the world quite like it.
