The Best Things to Do in the Bahamas

Any trip to the Bahamas is going to a one-of-a-kind experience. From the beaches to the world-class nightlife to the feeling of all responsibility slipping off your shoulders, you won’t forget your time on the islands.

The only question you should ask, while sitting poolside and sipping mai tais, is just what you’ll be doing that day. This is where the Bahamas really start to shine and take the word vacation to another level.

Check out our guide of the best things to do in the Bahamas below!

 

Swim with the Dolphins

Dolphins are some of the smartest animals in the world. Having the opportunity to meet them in the water, swim and play with them in their natural habitat, is nothing short of amazing.

We suggest checking out the many options for swimming with dolphins on Blue Lagoon Island. You’ll have a great time and your family will remember it for decades to come.

 

Go Shopping

No vacation is complete without a little bit of shopping. Luckily the Bahamas are packed with shops of every shape and size. Designer boutiques? Check. Luxury watches? They have them. Cutting edge tech? Of course.

What’s even cooler, if you ask us, are the islands’ traditional shops. Family owned and operated, they have everything from island art to native crafts and more.

We recommend making time for Port Lucaya Marketplace. Located conveniently on Grand Bahama Island, it’s the largest open-air shopping, dining, and entertainment facility in the Bahamas.

 

Go to Some of the Most Beautiful Beaches Around

The beaches are the reason the Bahamas are one of the globe’s most popular vacation destinations. You can’t get much more peaceful than sitting in pink sand staring at clear blue waves. Bonus points if your phone is out of reach.

Seriously, Bahama beaches are among the most beautiful in the world and they offer a great vacation from your vacation. Need a break from the bars and casinos? Slip off to Rose Island or Pink Sand Beach. Want to take some time off from family activities? Head over to Gold Rock Beach or Surfer’s Beach.

There is even the famous Pig Beach, where you can take a dip with the island’s loveable livestock. It’s not for everyone, but if you want some Instagram photos that are sure to turn heads, Pig Beach is your spot.

 

Go Caving in Lucayan National Park

Lucayan National Park is a not-so-hidden gem. Featuring 40 acres of undisturbed tropical paradise, nature trails, and mangrove wetlands, Lucayan is where you want to be to experience the true Bahamas.

It’s also home to one of the more sprawling underwater cave systems in the world. Some of these caves are off limit to the public, but two are open for caving, diving, and general memory making. You’ll definitely want to check these out for an unforgettable experience.
