Things to do in The Bahamas

The Bahamas is known for its plethora of beaches, where you can while away days snorkelling, swimming or simply basking in the balmy sunshine. But the country also has a rich culture and a complex heritage, which you can discover on one of our carefully curated experiences, as chosen by our specialists.

You can take a food-themed walking tour of the capital, Nassau, sampling a variety of Bahamian delicacies ranging from buttery rum cake and Fairtrade chocolate, to the citrus twang of conch salad — the Bahamian national dish. You could meet artisans making dazzling costumes for the annual Junkaroo parade, visit the 18th-century estate of a notorious pirate, and explore Fort Charlotte’s never-used battlements with an expert guide. Or for a slower pace, you can sail to Rose Island for a barbecue on the beach.
