Welcome to the Bahamas: A Paradise of Sparkling Sand and Sun

Jan 12, 2022

In addition to its many beautiful beaches, New Providence Island and the neighboring islands of the Bahamas offer visitors an abundance of warm-weather activities, both on land and in the water. Take a walking food tour of Nassau to sample an array of delicious cuisines, or book a guided ATV tour to see the most illustrious sights of the capital, including Fort Charlotte, the Queen’s Staircase, and the many vibrant pastels of our historic colonial architecture. Keep your head dry as you kayak or paddleboard across placid waters, or don a snorkel and dip beneath the surface to experience the variegated hues of the extensive coral reefs. Swim alongside majestic and gentle sea turtles; then head over to Big Major Cay to splash around with the swimming pigs (that’s right, pigs—no one’s really sure how they arrived here, but they’re some of our most famous and friendly residents!). Book your stay at the Sandyport Beach Resort today for an endless supply of sun, sea, and sparkling sand. We promise your winter coat won’t miss you too much while you’re away.
