Fun Things to do, Places to go


Nothing can prepare you for the thrill of an exalted encounter with dolphins on their own terms and on their own turf. Several operators offer swim-with-wild-dolphins trips that are guaranteed to leave you filled with boundless joy.


Few spots are as dramatic and serene as the lonesome headland at Hole-in-the-Wall, highlight of this forested park-a last refuge for the Bahama parrot. The hiking is splendid. It’s a true escapists’ dream for those who don’t mind rustic accommodations.


the fistful of bicentenary Loyalist villages on Elbow, Man O’ War, and Green Turtle cays exude irresistable charm. Splendidly preserved, gaily decorated clapboard houses have been pickled in aspic, and the Loyalists’ descendants have managed to retain some of their old ways, adding a living-museum quality.


If the rewards of standing in the midst of the Western Hemisphere’s largest flock of flamingos weren’t enough for bird watchers, Great Inagua’s saline ponds also attract countless other water birds.


You may choose only to do it once, or it may become the only way you travel between the islands, but a journey by mail boat i one to remember forever. Far from cushy, this is down-to-earth travel guaranteed to show you a side of life far from the tourist mainstream, and it’s sure to bond you to the Bahamian people.


Put yourself in a party mood and fly down to Great Exuma for the best time time in the islands. This traditional sailing regatta pits local skippers against each other, while onshore the crowds whoop it up in a four-day party.


This is the “in” spot of the moment. Besides the charming historic village of Dunsmore Town, “Briland’ boasts a stunning pink-sand beach, great nightspots, and a choice range of accommodations, including Pink Sands, a most favorite spot to lay your head in the entire Bahamian chain.


Fisher-folk claim that wrestling a big one from the ‘great blue river’ is a tip-top thrill. If you can stomach it, your fishing options are legion. Or for smaller yet no less challenging fry, try your hand at bone fishing; adherents swear that even great sex can’t compare, but we think they need to go out more often!


Wowie!! You can go swimming with sharks while they feed at several locales. At Stella Maris and at Walker’s Cay, you can witness a feeding frenzy just a few feet away. At Freeport and Nassau, the sharks are hand-fed by a diver clad in chain mail. It is definitely not for the timid!


Pay one visit to this brazenly colorful, unpretentious gem, west of Nassau, a sibling to Pink Sands in Harbor Island, and you will understand why many end their vacation to the Bahamas at this spot.


If you like The Bahamas, you’ll LOVE Cuba, a one-hour flight away from Nassau. Several tour companies offer single to multi-day excursions to this fascinating and friendly island of sensual charms. Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised!
