See all kinds of sharks in The Bahamas
Around five million people visit The Bahamas every year on a cruise and, in many cases, go no further than the capital. Paradise Island soaks up many others into all-inclusive mega resorts such as Atlantis.
There's more to The Bahamas than Paradise Island
The Bahamas is a group of 700 islands that stretch in an arc from the coast of Florida almost to northwestern Haiti. Geographically considered to be in the southern Atlantic rather than the Caribbean, and only 80 kilometers off the coast of Florida, many of the islands are further south than parts of Cuba.
Cat Island makes a person purr
I spend a few days on Cat Island in the Bahamas, soaking up the sea and sun while bathing in the sea and relaxing in a good hammock.
Classic images of paradise
Hello The Bahamas, whose turquoise blue waters are dotted with a constellation of more than 700 green islands where beautiful beaches of fine sand simmer under the tropical sun. This evocative landscape has been the star of numerous Hollywood films and travel shows, making it a classic image of paradise.
