What's not to love about The Bahamas? While you know them as a favorite winter destination, they are equally enchanting in the summer months. This 100,000 square-mile archipelago is just 55 miles off the Florida coast, and extends more than 500 miles of crystal clear waters. Its treasures include more than 700 islands, uninhabited cays, miles of sandy beaches, and arguably some of the best yachting and sailing in the world.
Whether you're craving sophistication or tranquility, you'll find it in The Bahamas. For glitzy casinos and a great nightlife, there are Nassau and Paradise Island, home to Atlantis, the mega-resort and marina. Just 30 miles northeast of Nassau, yet seemingly a world away, are the Out Islands, where you'll find some of the most stunning beaches, dive sites and fishing sites, including such idyllic destinations as Eleuthera, Spanish Wells, and Harbour Island. In fact, Harbour Island -- just three miles long with a breathtaking stretch of pink sand -- was named the Best Island in the Caribbean in 2005 by Travel & Leisure. The Exumas, which straddle the Tropic of Cancer, are home to the Land and Sea Park, one of the world's largest underwater and land preserves. This island chain is recognized as the sailing and yachting capital of The Bahamas, with 365 cays - a new island for every day of the year. For a great escape that's easily accessible, consider The Bahamas.
