The Islands of the Bahamas offer a wide choice of places to stay with every accommodation from five star resorts to small, cozy beach cottages. Whether you are looking for a fishing vacation, golfing, watersports, or just laying on the beach, the Bahamas offers the perfect vacation holiday destinations.


The islands are best known for fishing, and the surrounding ocean is considered by many to be one of the world's top fishing spots. Many visitors go to the islands by boat to fish, or to enjoy the local nightlife. Scuba diving and snorkeling are also popular activities, as there are many shipwrecks in the area. Bahamas Vacations offer beautiful sandy beaches, diving and snorkeling, boat charters, shopping, restaurants, casinos and lots of watersports making this a holiday tourist travel destination to visit. The Islands of Bahamas have a more laid back atmosphere compared to some other areas in the Caribbean. Evening entertainment and nightlife ends early in Bahamas, discos end around midnight except for some of the casinos. The night starts with a beautiful sunset over the ocean which can be viewed from many different bars and restaurants.


Junkanoo is a street parade with music, which occurs in many towns across the Bahamas every Boxing Day (December 26) and New Year's Day. The largest Junkanoo happens in Nassau, the capital. Junkanoo groups "rush" from 2:00 AM until shortly after dawn, to the music of cowbells, in costumes made from cardboard covered in tiny shreds of colourful crepe paper competing for cash prizes. Musical groups involved in the Nassau Junkanoo have included The Saxons, The Valley Boys, The Roots and One Family. Andros Crab Fest annual festival celebrates the most renowned aspect of Andros island, its native land crab. The location is Queen's Park in Fresh Creek.


Bahamians achieved self-government through a series of constitutional and political steps, attaining internal self-government in 1964 and full independence within the Commonwealth on July 10, 1973. The non-resident Queen of the Bahamas (Queen Elizibeth of England) is the ceremonial head of state

Since Havana closed to American tourists in 1961, The Bahamas have developed into a major tourist resort and at the same time the establishment of Freeport as a free trade zone (1955) developed an off-shore financial services center with a reputation for a tolerant atmosphere
