Mmmm...the Bahamas – holiday heaven. The climate is mild year-round, the beaches are excellent and there's plenty to do. One day you can be snorkeling, the next feeding sharks! You can even swim with dolphins - the highlight of many a Bahamas holiday. New Providence is home to Nassau and famous Cable Beach. Grand Bahama has a more laid-back feel with miles of incredible south-facing beaches. The Abaco Islands are larger but less populated, making them ideal for a back-to-nature experience. The Bahamas is known as 'the sailing capital of the world', and hopping aboard a yacht is certainly a great way to explore its hidden coves and deserted beaches!
We have a great selection of hotels for you to choose from too, whether you're looking for romantic seclusion or fun and excitement for all the family. And don't forget, if you’re on a Bahamas inclusive holiday your meals at your resort are already paid for so you can get on with enjoying your break. Perfect.

Different destinations have different magic touches so make sure to check them out to see what makes your holiday with us so special.
Beaches and Water Sports
National Trust-protected Gold Rock Beach on Grand Bahama Island is well worth a visit, as is Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island, Nassau. Abaco is great for diving and sailing, or hire a boat and go bonefishing!
Great for Golf
Navigate championship golf courses in glorious sunshine. There is Cable Beach golf course on Nassau, Treasure Cay golf course on the Abacos and Lucaya golf course on Grand Bahama island, to name but a few.
Feed the great hammerhead and tiger sharks on an organised excursion. You can also live the dream and swim with dolphins. Various trips introduce you to these awesome creatures with minimum intrusion.
Whilst a perfect destination for a beach holiday, why not spend some time in Miami or Orlando on your way out? Mix in a theme park experience at popular WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort or Universal Studios®; take an airboat ride across The Everglades; enjoy great-value shopping and add all sorts of fun into your tropical holiday - it's so easy.
