Nassau and The Abacos

Bahamian island hopping adventure

The Bahamas is a vast collection of small islands each with its only story and experiences. The country's main gateway lies on the island of Providence, one of the larger in the archipelago and home to Nassau. This lively resort is ideally situated, with easy access to the main attractions including Stingray City, Paradise Island, Senor Frogs and the wonder that is Atlantis. Before returning home, tag on a few days in The Abacos, a collection of small and sparsely populated islands where there is a slower, quieter pace to life. Largely untouched by tourism, hotels tend to be boutique and family owed, with an authentic Bahamian feel.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Island hopping in The Abacos
  • Visiting Straw Market in Nassau
  • Exploring The Exumas by boat
  • Take the ferry from George Town to Stocking Island
