Fresh, filling and flavored with local spices, Bahamian cuisine is undeniably inviting. A diet consisting largely of seafood and shellfish including grouper, conch, lobster and crab, the Bahamas is an ideal spot for foodies (if you like fish, that is!). International gastronomy with a strong American influence can also be found around the islands, however, with surf-and-turf featuring highly on many menus.

With over 700 islands and 2,000 cays and islets scattered all around the Atlantic Ocean, the Bahamas offer an idyllic island escape. Lined with palm-fringed beaches, watersport huts and tiny villages, this sun-drenched archipelago has plenty to offer. Take part in a Bonefishing adventure on The Out Islands, soak up the island-wide Bahamian cuisine or enjoy a sightseeing tour around the archipelago.
