The Islands of The Bahamas consist of 700-plus islands with turquoise waters that are as calm and warm as its people. The cultural, social, political and economic centre of the islands, as well as the most visited destination, is Nassau / Paradise Island. This includes two separate islands connected by two bridges. Nassau, the capital city of The Islands Of The Bahamas, is located on the northeast shore of the island of New Providence. Tiny Paradise Island is directly across the bridge from Nassau. Some of the world's most stunningly beautiful and unsullied beaches are to be found here if you are after a relaxing break. However, the two islands also offer duty-free shopping, luxury resorts, dazzling casinos, exciting attractions, historical landmarks and water and land sports of every kind.
