One: Do not try to see and do too .....
A Bahamas vacation is something that most travelers will never forget. The 700 islands of the Bahamas make up a 100,000-square-mile archipelago, extending over 500 miles. Including uninhabited cays and large rocks, it has a total estimated land area of 5,382 miles. The two main islands are New Providence Island and Grand Bahama Island, although the smaller islands of Abacos, Acklins, Andros, The Berry Islands, Bimini, Cat Island, Eleuthera, The Exumas, Inagua, Mayaguana, and San Salvador also offer prime vacation spots.

Grand Bahama Island vacations are perhaps the most popular. As the fourth largest island in the Bahamas, Grand Bahama Island extends for 96 miles against emerald green water. The island's many cities, towns, and villages provide a unique combination of a cosmopolitan locales, historical fishing villages, and undiscovered ecological treasures. The island also has one of the world's largest underwater cave systems, three national parks, endless beaches, and enchanting marine life.

Nassau, as the capital city of the Bahamas on New Providence Island, is also a popular vacation destination.. Along with its neighbor Paradise Island, these two pieces of land mix glamour with tropical ease. Nassau is prized for its sheltered harbor, and the city has managed to preserve its beautiful colonial mansions, cathedrals, 18-th century fortresses, and a Queen's staircase whose 66 steps lead to a view that simply is not to be missed.

Many dream their whole lives of a Bahamas vacation, and with the scenery, culture, and history to be found on Grand Bahama Island and in Nassau, it is easy to see why.
