Welcome to The BahamasTourists and international investors flock to this little paradise in search of sunshine, beaches and tax-free investing. The Island of the Bahamas, all 700 of them, stretch over more than 600 miles in southeasterly direction, starting only some 70 miles from the South Florida coast.
Tourism and International Banking are the mainstay of the Bahamian economy. Nassau is the capital of this Commonwealth and is located on the island of New Providence. Paradise Island lays on the northern side of Nassau Harbour and can be reached by water taxi or via the Paradise Island Bridge.
The Bahamas, and Nassau/Paradise Island in particular, are home to many international hotels, such as the Ocean Club and Atlantis Resort and Casino or Wyndham Nassau Resort . But you can also find smaller, family type hotels.
Guests in Nassau, Cable Beach or on Paradise Island have a large choice of good international and native Bahamian Restaurants, serving from anything from French Cuisine to Fresh Fish and rice at the "Fish Fry" on Arawak Cay.
If gambling and night life is not at all your style, try some smaller hotel in the capital or on one of the many "family islands", such as Eleuthera, Exuma, Abaco, Andros, Bimini or Cat Island. Some of these islands are excellent for bone fishing!
