Bahamas Cities and Islands


Situated on New Providence Island, where two thirds of the country’s people reside, the capital city is densely populated. Major resorts, active nightlife, casinos, and fine dining establishments draw visitors. See our Nassau and Paradise Island Travel Guide

Grand Bahama Island

Park trails and one of the world’s largest underwater cave systems exist alongside world-class shopping, dining, and accommodations. Its capital, Freeport, is The Bahamas’ second largest city.


East of New Providence, Eleuthera is littered with pink- and white-sand beaches, small hotels, and family-run restaurants. Features include the Glass Window Bridge with its sea views and Preacher's Cave, used for religious services in the 17th century.

Harbour Island

This quaint, well-off town, a short ferry hop from North Eleuthera, was settled by Loyalists 300 years ago. Traditional seaside wooden cottages commingle with top-notch dining and boutique hotels.

The Exumas

This chain of 365 islands is a major yachting destination. It hosts the annual Family Island Regatta and shelters to the world’s first designated marine park.

Long Island

Life moves at its own pace at this quiet farming island away from the city’s bustle. It’s renowned for white, powdery beaches and magnificent blue holes (visible underwater sink holes just off the coast).

Andros Island

Andros, just southwest of Nassau, is the largest and most undeveloped of all of the islands of the Bahamas. The area is a nature-lover’s paradise – it is covered in forests and mangrove swamps and is home to blue holes and the world’s third largest barrier reef.

Abaco Islands

Superb diving, unspoiled empty beaches, Cape Cod style architecture, and way laid back vibes define this 130 mile long group of islands in the northernmost Bahamas.

Kamalame Cay

Venture to the Out Islands and you’ll find the remote charm and deserted beaches that define paradise; make the trek to Kamalame Cay, a private island resort off the northeast coast of Andros Island—itself a natural hub for snorkeling, bonefishing, and diving—and you’ll find all that plus the service and accoutrements of a world-class destination.
