Everyone knows that the Bahamas are synonymous with raw, natural beauty with sprawling white sand beaches. But these images and connotations we have of the place are noting compared to the real thing.
Coming from Australia, the islands are a long way to get to, but let me tell you that you will thank me later for saying it's so worth it. Even in the middle of their winter is the weather better than a Melbourne summer.
If you like theme parks, then the Atlantis is the resort for you! The perfect melange of theme park and beautiful natural beaches. Do check out the amazing adult pool if you can!
However, if capturing breathtaking images is more up your alley, you must explore the less known islands as well as those mentioned in the tourist guides. Stanley Cey with its lizards make for gorgeous instagram pictures and lots of laughs, just as the renowned Pig Island baffles you!
Be warned! Water-sporting in that empty bay over there may seem like a good idea at the time! But watch out- your waiter at dinner that night may inform you that the reason it is empty is because it is shark infested! #truestory ... And to think that for all those hours you spent failing to stand up on the water skis there were sharks breeding under you!!
Fuel that wanderlust !
