Grand Bahama Island and Bahamas Vacations
Grand Bahama Island, like other islands in the Bahamas, is a beach lovers paradise but to go on Bahamas Vacations there entails more than sand and surf but also embracing its colorful history and sharing it with the local people. Pine trees would never survive the tropical climate, its a common perception; one that is easily busted when you visit the Lucayan National Park where they not only survive but multiply by the thousands which is a testament to how diverse the natural environment in the Bahamas is. Home to 18 species of birds that can only be found in the Bahamas, Rand Nature Center is frequented by bird lovers as well as regular tourists; more than a hundred indigenous plants are also grown there. Xanadu Beach is popular for having a wide range of water sports to choose from but they are not the only reason why visitors prefer staying here; straw products hand strewn and crafted abound in many shops and local stores in the place. Visit Grand Bahama Island if you want to relax like in the country but modern living is within reach.
Bahamas Vacations: Fun Things to do
People always see Bahamas Vacations as more of a water adventure than land based activities which are easily a misconception; the Bahamas has a beautiful array of landmarks that you can enjoy without getting your feet wet. The Cloisters Garden in Nassau is one of the favorite places in the Bahamas for staging weddings because of the 14th century French monastery that was transferred from France to the US then finally in Ocean Drive overlooking the harbor of Nassau; its grand design filled with pools, fountains, and ancient structures make it irresistible to tourists. Hike 206 feet into Como Hill at Mount Alvernia in Cat Island, its the highest point of the Bahamas and you can also visit the hand carved stone staircases and monastery built in the 1930s by one Father Jerome Hawes; the reclusive priest who inhabited the island and tried to spread Gods words. Ancient mariners relied on land based guides like the Andros Lighthouse in Andros Island erected in 1852; today its a wonderful viewing deck for the lovely sunset at the Bahamas. The Bahamas is not just for water lovers but for those who like to stay dry as well.
Bahamas Vacations: The Berry Islands
If you want you Bahamas Vacations to be more than the usual beaches, sightseeing, rounds of golf, the head out to the Berry Islands for this is the perfect place to go for some me-time. Rent a boat and head out to one of the many small islands that make this mini-chain of islands and find some peace and quiet time for you.

Going on vacation means doing nothing and that is what you can do here which is to just laze the whole day away. The tourism council of the islands organizes the Berry Islands Festival every month of May to entice people to come and visit the islands as well as get to know more about it. This island is definitely a place to go for some private time either by you or with someone.
Bahamas Vacations: Bimini
One of the best spots for your Bahamas Vacations is the mysteriously beautiful Bimini Island; Ernest Hemingway, world renowned author and poet, had a lifelong love affair with the place where he often fished. The Bahamas is the perfect diving destination because of the waters visibility that can reach up to two hundred feet below the surface and Bimini Road, a group of limestone block relics submerged only twenty feet deep aligned almost perfectly led discoverers to believe it was a road in the fabled City of Atlantis; true or not, it makes for good diving or snorkeling. Bimini may be the smallest of the Out Islands but its beaches definitely dont lack the size as evidenced by the Tiki Hut Beach, a two mile stretch of pure white sand that highlights the beautiful vegetation of the island and makes for one amazing picture. For a little piece of history, take a dive at the Saponas wreck which was once a Liberty ship delivering liquor to states under the time of the prohibition. Once you step foot on Bimini Island you will instantly know youll return again.
