White sand beach with tall palm trees and blue water in Bahamas
Fora’s Take

The Bahamas comprises 700 islands all with one thing in common – beaches that are absolute perfection, complete with turquoise clear waters. The hotels have plenty to do for every age group, and offer babysitting or kids club options if you need. If you are tired of looking at your beach screensaver, pack a bag and head to paradise.

Things to do in the Bahamas

With direct flights to Nassau and an array of wonderful resort options, Nassau is a great place for a quick beach getaway.  For the best beach, head to the popular Cable Beach, which looks as though you’ve stepped into an idyllic screensaver.  

Baha Mar is about 20 minutes from the airport and has three hotels, many restaurants, a gorgeous beach, several pools (one with a fish tank in it), kids clubs, flamingos, food trucks, a new water park and so much more.

A bit farther from the airport is Atlantis, a resort with many hotels. There is a lazy river that runs through the resort and a water slide that runs through a shark tank.  

Near Atlantis, you’ll want to check out Cabbage Beach, a family-friendly beach where you can walk 300 feet and escape the sun worshippers and tourists that clog up the more well-known beaches.  

All the way at the end of the appropriately named Paradise Island is the Ocean Club Four Seasons. Set on 35 acres of gardens, this hotel has stunning beaches and a martini bar perfect for ending the night. 

Once you’ve soaked up enough sun rays, make a visit to the Queen’s Staircase in Nassau. This 66 step walkway was carved out of solid limestone between 1793 and 1794. Notably, the Queen’s Staircase looks more like a magical jungle than a staircase as it features cascading water and verdant plants flanking its steps.

Eleuthera & Harbour Island

If you are looking for a quieter vibe, try the stunning island of Eleuthera or Harbour Island. Eleuthera boasts stunning beaches, some great for surfing and kite surfing and some entirely still.  

There are plenty of water activities from snorkeling and diving to kayaking and paddle boarding, and all kinds of fishing too. You will need a car to explore the beaches, or you can explore by boat and then unwind at night at the Cove, a delightful resort with excellent sushi and mixed drinks.

Looking for a pink sand beach?  Then head to Harbour Island and stay at the Dunmore or the Coral Sands. This island is easy to explore on foot or by golf cart, which you can rent at the boat drop off. You will be entirely charmed by this island which has a loyal following – many who come back year after year!  

If you head to Harbour Island just for the day, you can rent an umbrella and chairs at Mrs. V’s, located between The Dunmore and The Ocean View Club beaches. You can also rent paddleboards, kayaks, kids toys and more.

A note from Fora

Driving around Nassau may be tricky for American travelers as driving is done on the left hand side of the road. Instead consider hailing a taxi, which is a reliable and convenient way to get around the city. There are also several mini buses (known locally as jitneys) that can take you around Nassau.

Places to eat & drink in the Bahamas

Sip Sip at the Cove: While the beloved original in Harbour Island has closed, Sip Sip in Nassau does a good job of mimicking the original location’s lively feel. Its dishes mix Mediterranean and Caribbean cuisines and use local ingredients from the area’s farmers and fishermen. 

Curly’s Restaurant and Bar: Craving freshly fried fish? Curly’s is the most popular spot on Nassau’s Fish Fry strip.

Carna Baha Mar: With its 10 different types of steak and extensive wine list, you’ll love dining at Carna. Not in the mood for steak? Try the two-tier fish tower, complete with oysters, king crab, prawns and lobster tail.

Eleuthera & Harbour Island

Landing: A contemporary restaurant with a strong emphasis on local produce and ingredients. Try the ricotta hotcakes!

Blue Bar and Kitchen: Looking for a restaurant with a view? This iconic spot serves up Bahamian dishes and signature cocktails, and is the perfect spot for a sunset.

Queen Conch: This spot attracts visitors from around the world, and is the spot for your fill of conch. They have a variety of conch options, but the favorite of tourists and locals alike is the conch salad.
