We know that The Bahamas has great beauty so our expectations of it as a holiday destination are rightfully, pretty high.

We dream of a tropical paradise of perfect stretches of powdery sand, lapped by seas in sublime shades of blue contrasting with the green of swaying palm trees and it happens across 700 islands and 2000+ cays.

But once you reach this destination, where do you go?

Where are the top rated places to visit in the Bahamas?

1. Discover Atlantis on Paradise Island

Discover Atlantis on Paradise Island

The Atlantis hotel complex and water park on Paradise Island's Casino Drive seeks to recreate the ancient world of the legendary island of Atlantis.

One of the best places to visit in the Bahamas for those who love rides, high-speed slides and water sports, the 141-acre site of Aquaventure will hold the greatest interest.2

The site boasts more than 20 pools, a mile-long Lazy River Ride and numerous slides and thrilling rides.

The aquarium is also not what visitors will expect, for here swordfish and hammerhead sharks glide through the crystal clear waters of open-air pools rather than closed fish tanks.

Entry to the entertainments and theme park is free for guests of the luxury hotel complex.

2. Go Fishing on Bimini

Go Fishing on Bimini

Bimini Island is one of the best places to visit in the Bahamas if you like to wrestle with big game fish.

Bimini comprises of a small cluster of islands, which lie ca.

45 sea miles east of Miami, Florida and are the closest to US mainland.

Between March and September Bimini hosts deep-sea fishing tournaments, but if you don't like fishing there is an abundance of other stuff to do, such as snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing.

Dolphin and shark dives are particularly popular here, but if you who love to see a magical underwater world go diving at the Sapona Wreck, Rainbow Reef and Victory Reef.

Visit Bimini Museum to get a little background to some of the historic homes on the island.

Famous author Ernest Hemingway came to Bimini several times and was inspired by his experiences, which found their way into his novels "The Old Man and the Sea" and "Islands in the Stream".
