Favorite Activity: Spending time on the beach
The Bahamas is famous for its beautiful beaches, so it’s no surprise that many of our visitors ranked beach time as one of their favorite things to do.

“The view from the plane was awesome but being on those beaches with that beautiful water was incredible.” – Kathy

Favorite Place to Eat: Fish Fry
The Fish Fry at Arawak Cay is popular with locals and visitors alike. Many of our guests enjoyed stopping by this casual waterfront spot to grab an authentic Bahamian dish.
“The Fish Fry was a lot of fun to try different foods. The conch fritters were delicious!” – Sue
“We loved…eating at Arawak Cay. I had conch fritters four times that week!” – Megan

Favorite Experience: Island World Adventures excursion
Our guests love the Island World Adventures powerboat ride to Saddleback Cay in the Northern Exumas. And with opportunities to feed sharks, iguanas, and tropical fish and snorkel in picture-perfect turquoise waters – not to mention taking in breathtaking scenery along the way – it’s no wonder this day trip is so popular.
“The Island World Adventures Exuma Cays excursion was fabulous. It was the most beautiful water I’ve ever seen.” – Angela
“If I had to pick (a favorite) it would have to be the excursion where you take a speedboat out to the Exuma Cay islands for the day. Our first stop was a private beach with a Bahamian lunch and afterwards we got to feed our leftovers to the sharks. Next we stopped at the sand bar in the middle of the water and got to look for sand dollars. Finally, we got to stop on an island and feed iguanas!” – Carmyn
“It was quite the experience. We fed iguanas, then went and saw sharks and fed a stingray. The guides on the island made fresh conch salad.” – Jacey
What Visitors Recommend: Discovering downtown Nassau
Colorful Nassau is full of unique places to discover and friendly faces, and visitors to The Bahamas love exploring this vibrant city.
“We stayed on Paradise Island but I would definitely recommend exploring downtown Nassau.” – Angela
“I would recommend to everyone to explore as much of Nassau as you can. There are many attractions and experiences to enjoy. You can also do as little as you would like to. Just enjoying the locals and their home is also special. Try to experience the best of both worlds.” – Jacquelyn
