Made up of around 700 islands, 40 of which are occupied by humans, the Bahamas have several great beaches that draw tourists. Cabbage Beach, two miles long, is one of the archipelago’s best. Boasting clear and calm waters, the beach is great for snorkeling and swimming, and it is lined with hotels, restaurants, and casinos. The Bahamas are also known for Xanadu Beach, Lucaya Beach, and Gold Rock Beach.

Located on Paradise Island, Atlantis, a luxury hotel, aquarium, water park, and entertainment complex, is another popular attraction. Hotel guests receive free admittance to Aquaventure, a huge waterscape consisting of several water slides, over 20 pools, and a long Lazy River Ride. The site also is home to many restaurants and shops, all of which continue the fantasy sea theme.

Grand Bahama, the closest island to the United States, is home to Freeport, the second largest city on the islands, and the Port Lucaya Marketplace, which sells jewelry and other souvenirs. Offering a wide variety of hotels and resorts, the island also has three national parks and one of the largest underwater cave systems in the world.
