Another destination whose only name makes you dream! Between Florida and Cuba, the Bahamas is synonymous with chic, even chic, idleness, fine sandy beaches, turquoise water and coconut palms. This archipelago of coral reefs dedicated to tourism germinates in the Atlantic Ocean more than 700 islands and islets, some uninhabited, others lined with hotel complexes, each more luxurious than the next. Grand Bahama and Paradise Island are home to the most famous of them. If you land in Nassau, the capital, there is little chance you will stay there. On an organized trip, you are quickly transported to your own dream island. Alone, you will want to see wilder islands. Dedicated to tourism, the Bahamas cares about its environment, which is rich in exceptional biodiversity. The Bahamas National Trust now protects nearly 260,000 hectares of marine and land. Diving enthusiasts particularly appreciate the Andros reef, the largest of the islands, the black coral gardens off Bimini, not to mention the Thunderball cave, made famous for having served as a backdrop for some James Bond film scenes. Be careful with the bill! A holiday in the Bahamas costs a small fortune, even if you choose modest hotels. But deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, an open-air aquarium, spectacular activities and impeccable service are priceless! A little literature on the deckchair?
