Places to Visit

Andros - A crude, wild island covered with vast envelope of palm savannahs, eerie forests of mahogany, pine and palmettos and huge mangrove wetlands.

Bimini Road - This is perhaps the best-known place for scuba diving. Named for the strange underwater formations that resemble paving blocks of a giant aqua-highway located off the coast of Paradise Point at the north end of Bimini Bay, the enormous limestone blocks are clearly visible in shallow water, bordering on the massive hand-hewn building blocks of the Incas.

Inagua National Park - This is one of the best know national parks in the Caribbean. A huge area of 743 sq km national park has some spectacular flora and fauna. Inagua is also the world's largest breeding colony of West Indian flamingos. Lake Windsor forms an important section of the park for bird watchers, especially if you are interested in watching roseate spoonbills, reddish-pink egrets, Louisiana herons, and about 50,000 pink flamingos.

Lucayan National Park - One of Bahama's best-known tourist spots, the 16-hectare national park leads into a limestone plateau. Mesmerize yourself in the limestone caves that open to the longest underwater cave system in the world. A mangrove swamp, and the gorgeous Gold Rock Beach are other notable tourist spots in the Lucayan National Park.
