Family Vacations Are Better in the Bahamas

With nearly 30 islands, 700 cays and 2,500 islets, there are so many ways to enjoy the Bahamas. Whether you dream of a vacation snorkeling with thousands of tropical fish in a colourful coral reef, dozing in the sunshine on a powder-soft beach or tucking into a dinner of flavourful fresh seafood, the Bahamas have as many splendid attractions as there are islands.

Bahamas Villa Rentals in an Atmosphere of Pirates and Poets

Consider the Bahamas for your next family vacation, and you’re joining a long list of illustrious, and sometimes infamous, people who came to these tropical islands for peace, shelter and sunshine.

The shallow reefs and pretty coves of the Bahamas were once a thriving pirate paradise, boasting the highest number of pirates in the world, including the terrifying Blackbeard. Bahamas cottage rentals around Nassau put you and your family close to Blackbeard’s former stomping grounds, as well as the modern Pirate Museum in Nassau, which brings to life this exciting and, fortunately, bygone chapter of Bahamas history.

Explorers and adventurers also came here to seek out Bimini Island, the rumoured home of the Fountain of Youth. Today, the Healing Hole on North Bimini still draws people searching for mystical waters thought by some to cure ailments and refresh the soul. Divers also come to the waters off Bimini, searching for clues to the Lost City of Atlantis among the famous Bimini Stones.

The beauty of the Bahamas has also drawn many of the world’s most famous modern thinkers and poets, from Martin Luther King Jr. and Ernest Hemingway to Jimmy Buffett.

Bahamas Fishing – Inspiration for The Old Man and the Sea

It was the lure of big-game fishing that brought author Ernest Hemingway to the Bahamas, and it is believed that fishing in the Bahamas provided the inspiration for one of his most critically acclaimed novels, The Old Man and the Sea. Hemingway made his home on Bimini for two years during the 1930s, and at the time, a local fisherman caught a record 500-pound blue marlin in the waters off the coast.

The sparkling waters all around the islands of the Bahamas teem with incredible game fish. Whether you’re trying deep-sea fishing for the first time, or want to sign up for a big-game fishing tournament, Bahamas fishing is for everyone who wants to spend time out on the water. Try the challenge of bone fishing in the sea grass beds by the Out Islands, or head to the waters off Bimini, Eleuthera or the Abacos to take on the challenge of big game, such as marlin and tuna.

Bahamas Golfing Under the Caribbean Sky

With bright Caribbean sunshine all year round and a stunning backdrop of turquoise-blue waters, Bahamas golfing is the highlight of many visitors’ vacations. The four main places to golf are on Grand Bahama Island, Great Exuma, in the Abacos and on New Providence Island. Bahamas villa rentals in Nassau and Freeport are ideal for golfers looking for a sunny place to play. There are world-class courses here, including the famous Reef Course near Freeport, designed by Robert Trent Jones.

With such a wide variety of activities, and the tropical backdrop of year-round sunshine, it is no wonder that Bahamas cottage rentals are a popular choice for family vacations. Consider a vacation with all the comforts of home, in the storied and welcoming setting of the Bahamas!
