The Bahamas is 700-plus islands and cays range from uninhabited to packed with resorts. The northernmost, Grand Bahama, and Paradise Island, home to many large-scale hotels, are among the best known. Scuba diving and snorkeling sites include the massive Andros Barrier Reef, Thunderball Grotto and the black-coral gardens off Bimini. We had an amazing time enjoying the beautiful islands of the Bahamas, I cannot wait to visit again.
HOW TO GET AROUND:
As you know that Bahamas is a chain of many islands out of which about 30 are inhabited. When you are planning to travel between two islands, your options could be fast air-conditioned ferries operated by 'Bahamas Ferries', or taking a domestic flight operated by the national airline 'Bahamas Air', or even a Mailboat (slow ferries which are still in operation since old days). There are many airports and airstrips across the islands (57 of them and several with 'port of Entry' status) and all islands would have ferry docks.Public buses which are minibuses and locally known as Jitneys, have frequent services in Nassau as well as in Grand Bahama. Bus service is not available in other out islands. The bus service starts at 6am and ends around 6:30pm. The service is frequent and they run every few minutes during the day time. The buses come in different colors & shapes, but the route number is prominently written in front. You can get in or off the bus anywhere you like in both Nassau and Grand Bahama.
