Made up of about 2,000 different islands, the Bahamas lie in the Atlantic Ocean and are separate from the nearby Caribbean islands.
Stop by the islands’ capital, Nassau, which also happens to be the largest city in the Bahamas, and is located on the eastern end of New Providence Island. You can visit the Pirate Museum which features authentic pirate-themed paraphernalia in addition to a re-enactment of a pirate battle. Also go to the Parliament Building, which has not only been painted bright pink but also features a statue of Queen Victoria outside of it, to commemorate the island’s presence in the Commonwealth. Be sure to stop by Potters’ Cay, just underneath the bridge to Paradise Island. Renowned for its fresh fish, the seaside spot has an extensive market dedicated to seafood, featuring exotic and tropical fish indigenous to the island’s coasts.
The adjoining Paradise Island is also worth a stop and is home to the internationally-acclaimed Atlantis casino resort. For excellent offers on places to stay in the Bahamas, browse the deals from Hotels4u.com.
