A to-do list
For your holiday in the sun

Enjoying mouthwatering meals at great restaurants is all part of vacationing in the sunny Bahamas. But there’s more than good food to experience.

You’ll find a buffet of fun-filled things to do in Nassau, Paradise Island and Cable Beach–from snorkelling and scuba diving to sailing on a catamaran, visiting historic forts and museums or enjoying memorable days on the beach at oceanfront hotels.

A visit to The Bahamas is not really complete without swimming or, better yet, snorkelling in our crystal clear water. Seeing the amazing variety of colourful and oddly shaped fish that live around our reefs and coral heads is an experience not easily forgotten.

Nor is your first scuba dive with sharks. Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas takes adrenalin junkies on a variety of exciting dives–reefs, walls, wrecks, blue holes–but especially shark feeding dives. Those who don’t want to get their hair wet should try the unique SUB Bahamas tour, where you pilot a Scenic Underwater Bubble around a reef.

If cruising is more your speed, book an excursion on the Flying Cloud, a fast, 57-ft sailing catamaran. Captain Craig and his crew will take you on morning and afternoon excursions to Rose Island–snorkelling gear included. On Sunday, take a full-day cruise that includes a delicious luncheon, snorkelling and beach time.

On Paradise Island it’s hard to miss the Atlantis mega resort where guests and visitors alike can spend a day or more zipping down thrilling water slides or floating along lazy river rides. Sunbathe poolside or on the beach, and try your luck at the casino–the Caribbean’s largest with 850 slots and 90 table games.

Another resort for fun-filled days is the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort & Casino on Cable Beach. Purchase a day pass to enjoy full use of the resort’s amenities including its swimming pools, beach and water sports activities.

There’s much more, of course. Take in Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre near Fort Charlotte and Arawak Cay (two more well-known attractions) for a day with some fascinating critters, including marching flamingos.

Enjoy also The Bahamas’ rich culture and history with a visit to one of downtown Nassau’s many museums and galleries, including the Pompey Museum of Emancipation and Slavery and the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas.
