There are more than 700 beautiful islands and cays, extending over 100,000 square miles of the Atlantic ocean, offering an abundance of outdoor activities, diverse terrain, world class snorkeling, diving, protected ecosystems and more.

Spectacular resorts, unlimited sports facilities, and an array of exciting nighttime activities abound in Nassau/Paradise Island and Grand Bahama Island. And beyond these more well-known vacation destinations are the many serene island gems -- The Abacos, Andros, Berry, Bimini, Cat, Crooked, Eleuthera/Harbour, The Exumas, Long Island, San Salvador -- that are havens for sailors, anglers, divers, private pilots, nature lovers and ecotourists.
