Honeymoons in the Bahamas

The Bahamas incorporates about seven hundred islands, with the vast majority of them being completely uninhabited. The first of the islands is situated just 55 miles east of Florida and as you would expect from such an idyllic region, each island contains some of the most breathtaking beaches and scenery you will find anywhere in the world. The islands are a haven for diving, snorkeling and fishing and the Bahamas are well established as one of the world's top draws for both intrepid explorers and casual vacationers.

Bahamas Overview

Made up of hundreds of small islands and with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the Bahamas is the ultimate in beach paradise.

If you want an activity-filled holiday then many of the beaches offer water sports and activities, including water-skiing, windsurfing and parasailing. If you’re looking for a more peaceful time then you can visit one of the more secluded beaches and relax by clear waters, visit one of the beach-side bars and enjoy some fresh seafood from one of the local restaurants.

If you’re lucky enough you may see the elusive green flash during your stay. On very clear, cloudless nights and just after the sun has disappeared behind the sea, a brilliant band of green light the width of the sun will flash on the horizon. If you’re lucky enough to see this then it will definitely be a moment you will both never forget.
