The Bahamas

seriál :: Language corner

The Bahamas, a beautiful group of islands in the Caribbean, is a popular place for many people to visit. It's sunny, always warm, and one of the best places to relax and have a good time.

As far as beaches are concerned, the Bahamas have some of the most beautiful ones. And, it can be noted that since most people travel to the Bahamas exclusively for its beaches, most activities are water or outdoors related. In that respect there are endless activities to do: jet skiing, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, biking, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and many other activities. However, because of this it is not a good idea to travel there in the summer, as it can be rather stifling.

Of course the Bahamas are best known for its luxurious beaches with crystal clear turquoise waters, the example can be Xanadu Beach and Paradise Cove. There, you get the sense that you are away from the rest of the world.

It is a MUST to either snorkel or scuba dive while in the Bahamas. Having never snorkeled where there are coral reefs, you will be absolutely taken aback by the beauty of the sea life and the magnificence of the reefs.

Aside from the beaches, it is also fun to check out the straw markets where you can find some interesting things, most of which is hand-made, at cheap prices. Always remember to barter since everyone jacks up the prices in tourist areas (or simply if you look like a tourist). There are also several very nice casinos.

If you want to get a true feel of the island, travel to the west or east ends, or even farther inland. For photography buffs, and I hope yourselves included, the communities, and people within them, scattered throughout the island are great to check out and they convey a true sense of island life.
