Suppose you set out to create the perfect paradise, where would you begin? You might start with a tropical island – or better yet, seven hundred tropical islands; and surround them with pristine, silver sandy beaches lapped by crystalline turquoise surf. Now you’ve got the Bahamas. Spreading out over one hundred thousand square miles starting sixty miles east of Florida, Bahamas resorts are famous for having the clearest waters in the world. With its many hidden bays and small islets, the paradise of Bahamas found favor with Caribbean pirates who preyed on the gold, silver and other precious cargo brought from the New World. One sunken Spanish treasure ship yielded three million pounds in treasure to the divers who recovered it.
Moreover, each inhabited island in the Bahamas archipelago has its own rich customs and culture. New Providence Island is the center of the action, with the capital Nassau, Paradise Island, and Cable Beach all inclusive Bahamas resort areas. Here you can savor luxurious gourmet dining, enjoy world class entertainment; play craps, blackjack, baccarat, or slot machines in colorful casinos; and enjoy fun sports facilities (including a championship golf course). Nassau itself has a quaint English colonial atmosphere, with its pink Rawson Square government buildings, small restaurants and pubs dotting its picturesque side streets, and even horse-drawn carriage rides through the town. Near the wharf there is a new museum which highlights the Junkanoo (Bahamas Carnival, celebrated at New Years) tradition. The busy straw market features hundreds of sellers happy to bargain for souvenir treasures; and the international boutiques of Bay Street offer fashionable and elegant shopping.
Besides guided tours of the attractions of Nassau town, Bahamas resorts offer a vast selection of boat rentals and charters, from fully catered and crewed sailing trips to motorboats, small sailboats, and jet skis. You can snorkel, scuba dive, enjoy a barefoot picnic on a remote beach – even take a submarine ride! Bahamas all inclusive resorts are themselves paradise regained: everything you do, eat, or drink is covered in one upfront price so you don’t have to think about money, ever.
Besides the delights of Nassau town, you can kayak, water ski, rock climb, or swing on a flying trapeze. Bask on Bahamas powdery sands at Cable Beach, or take a relaxing dip in the pool and unwind in a bubbling Jacuzzi. You can savor exquisite gourmet meals with unlimited wine and drinks, great snacks and hors d’oeuvres, and premium umbrella drinks whenever the spirit moves you – no tipping allowed! When night falls the fun really begins with live entertainment and disco dancing – even karaoke contests. All inclusive Bahamas resorts are the ideal way to enjoy your piece of paradise under the sun!
