A tropical archipelago ringed by vibrant coral reefs, the Bahamas is one of the most popular countries in the Caribbean. The sun shines year-round here, the sand is powder-soft and the warm Atlantic waters are teeming with tropical fish. Water sports are an obvious choice if you’re looking for things to do in the Bahamas and there’s plenty of choice. Further inland, the country’s bustling capital, Nassau is where you will experience Bahamian culture at its most vivacious. Go to the city to enjoy duty-free shopping, waterfront dining, or to pick up handcrafted goods at the famous Straw Market. If you’re more interested in a quiet day, head straight for Half Moon Cay, a privately owned island where sun-loungers line the sand and relaxation is the order of the day.
