Beginning less than 60 miles from the East Coast of Florida, the chain of islands, cays and rocky outcrops that comprise the Bahamas are one of the world's most picturesque beachside destinations. A villa in the Bahamas will offer any visitor the chance to sample pretty much anything that the modern traveller requires - from eco-tourism above and below the waves to casinos, sun-worshipping and watersports.
The Bahamas have long been a sought after destination for a wide variety of different reasons, but in particular diving and snorkelling throughout the islands has become a focal point for their tourism industry. Why not base yourself in a villa in the Bahamas right on the beach itself on one of the bigger islands before diving at a variety of different sites to really explore this region - and to see the greatest range of flora and fauna during your stay. Reefs in this region account for over 10% of the world's total, and the clear water and white sands mean that you will be able to see more, and further, every time. Even if scuba is not your thing then the opportunities for snorkeling are endless, while sailing boats and watersports can be found throughout the chain. It's enough to convert even the most committed landlubber! Away from the beach, a self catering villa in the Bahamas (or apartments) means that you have flexibility for a wide variety of activity. Golf, tennis and even island tours are all widely available - or if your tastes extend to something a bit riskier then many of the bigger islands have casinos. Here, you can take on the house or your fellow players until triumph or disasters strikes before retiring to your villa in the Bahamas to relax and watch the sun come up.....it's a something for everyone kinda destination.
