One of the biggest challenges which comes from planning a vacation to the Bahamas often comes down to the variety of activities and beach destinations to explore. There are hundreds of islands, more than 700 in fact! You could spend a few days or longer just relaxing in one spot or spread your wings a little and fly (or cruise) a handful of islands to help decide which ones might be a personal favourite, then come back for a longer, more in depth stay in future! Nassau and Paradise Island make for a pretty good place to start any adventure, and features heavily among cruise itineraries of the Caribbean, with plenty of options departing Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The island is accessible, features plenty of iconic beaches, and has large, dedicated resort areas at both Paradise Island's Atlantis and Cable Beach's Baha Mar complex.
