The Bahamas


More than 700 gorgeous islands constitute The Commonwealth of the Bahamas, from uninhabited specs of sand to bustling New Providence with the country's capital of Nassau. They say its name comes from the Spanish phrase "baja mar" meaning low or shallow water. The turquoise-and-emerald streaked ocean off these exquisite isles lures travelers from around the world.


We love The Bahamas for their diversity. If you just had to visit one...where would it be? Bimini? Cat Island? Eleuthera? Andros? Maybe Green Turtle Cay! The only problem is that with so many perfect tropical oases, it's very hard to choose.
