The Bahamas can provide the perfect tropical getaway
With a total of 700 islands to explore, you're sure to be kept busy on a trip to the Bahamas with the Co-operative Travel.
Once you find yourself reclining on the powdery sands of Cable Beach on New Providence Island it's quite possible you won't want to move another inch. On the other hand, you've still got another 699 islands to explore.
Situated across 1,500 square miles of the Caribbean, the Bahamas can provide the perfect tropical getaway, where you can do as much or as little as you want. Its mild climate makes the Bahamas an ideal destination where you can enjoy sun-soaked beaches all-year-round.
New Providence Island is home to Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, where visitors can while away the hours exploring the bustling streets and indulging in a spot of duty-free shopping. The city has retained its much of its colonial heritage so take time to soak up the atmosphere of the old town and gaze upon the many 18th century pastel coloured buildings which line the streets.
Make your way over to nearby Paradise Island where you'll find yet more stunning beaches, an open-air aquarium and a championship golf course - one of many to be found across the Bahamas.
If it's a little piece and quiet you're looking for then take out a boat and go exploring.
Swimming with Dolphins in the Bahamas
Head for Grand Bahama and lose yourself on one of its secluded beaches or among the pine forests of the Lucayan National Park. Discover sleepy fishing villages or wander around Freeport with its tree-lined boulevards and superb shops.
For those who want a little more adventure then the Bahamas won't disappoint. Hire a boat to discover hidden beaches and coves or pull on a wetsuit and explore the area's breathtaking marine life.
For the brave traveller there is always the opportunity to try your hand at feeding sharks during one of the many organised trips offered by companies across the islands. For a more laid back option go swimming with dolphins in the clear azure waters for the experience of a lifetime.
There is so much to do on a package holiday or all-inclusive holiday you won't want to leave. Look out for the best deals and offers available with The Co-operative Travel and go and find your own piece of paradise.
