Christopher Columbus ventured toward these limestone landscape, then landed in 1492 on the Caribbean islands of The Bahamas which are made up of 700 islands and 2,400 Cays spread over 760 miles (1206 km). There are three main parts to the shimmering islands with a back drop of alluring blue seas. Grand Bahamas Island which holds ecological wonders ready for exploration where lepidopterists can spot 28 verities of butterflies. Nassau/Paradise Island is a tropical haven with plenty of contradiction in terms of beautiful beaches to laze on quietly reading and great spa to relax contemplating life, restaurant serving culinary delights, or for the energetic top golf, water parks, casinos and night life mix with the Caribbean spirit of the Junkaroo an excuse to party each year that has been parading the street of Nassau for over 500 years.
Then there is the romance of the Out Islands as they lay off the beaten track with a slower pace.
The Out Islands are a must for the yachting fraternity and divers alike. The island of Abacos stretches south for 200 miles east of Grand Bahamas island and has allegedly the world’s third biggest coral reef, just spectacular sailing and outstanding reef diving. Two other islands; Exuma and Little Exuma are connected by a one lane bridge which makes for interesting crossings. These island are an adventures play-ground both on land and in the seas, not to forget a bird watcher retreat viewing such as mocking birds, humming birds, herons, ospreys and flamingos.
