Nationaal Park

Met meer dan 5% van het rif op aarde bieden de Bahama's onuitputtelijke genoegens en uitdagingen voor zowel snorkelaars als duikers. De natuurlijke schoonheid van het water strekt zich langs de duizenden mijlen kustlijn uit, waar zich enkele van de meest adembenemend mooie en onbezoedelde stranden van de wereld wereld liggen. Van het roze zand van Eleuthera en Harbour Eiland tot de verlaten strengen van de Exumas en San Salvador, zijn er genoeg verschillende stranden om een leven lang te een leven over te doen ze allemaal teervaren. Verder landinwaarts zijn tuinen en nationale parken met zeldzame en bedreigde soorten, zoals de exotische Abaco Parrot en de Bahamaanse Iguana.

 Toeristenbureau Bahamas [ Engelstalig ]
Zon, zand en zee zijn slechts een paar aanduidingen voor de eilanden van de Bahama's. In de kern van deze eilanden vindt u een groot hart, open armen, en een manier van leven het leven die zowel tijdloos als nieuw is. Het is het erfgoed van de Bahamianen en uw vertrekpunt uit de dagelijks sleur.

 Nassau  -  Hoofdstad van de Bahamas

  Andros  -  grootste eiland van de Bahama eilanden
It has an abundance of bonefish and the world's third largest barrier reef which is over 140 miles long and is renowned for its superb diving sites and marine life.
Home to one of the largest populations of bonefish, it is also home to the third largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere.
 Biminis
The tiny Biminis, situated a mere 50 miles off the coast of Florida, is home to the finest fishing arenas in the world, that attract many a sportsmen to the championship fishing tournaments held year round. Perhaps, that is because in the waters surrounding Bimini, grouper, swordfish, marlin, tuna, and wahoo, are as common as the sand. And for a good reason: Bimini is where the waters of Florida's Gulfstream meets The Bahama Banks, making it the area the ideal meeting place for yatchsman the world over.
 Crooked Island
Crooked Island is known for its natural beauty and the Island has many quaint villages. It provides good fair weather cruising grounds and tidal flats. It has been known as a bonefish paradise and is also good for tarpon fishing.
 South Bimini Island
 The Abacos Islands [ cc Marsh Harbour ]  -  zeilhoofdstad van de wereld
With 650 square miles stretching over 120 miles like stepping stones, The Abaco Islands are a sailing and boating universe. The major islands of this small archipelago are Great and Little Abaco, with the off-lying cays of Elbow Cay, Man-O-War Cay, Green Turtle Cay, Guana Cay, Stranger's Cay, Umbrella Cay and Walker's Cay completing the string. Sheltered harbors create a haven for yachtsmen. Colonial towns are gems of New England architecture. And the ecosystem provides a rich outdoor experience for nature lovers.

 San Salvador
San Salvador is the first landfall site of Christopher Columbus on his initial voyage of discovery in 1492. Four separate monuments mark the exact spot Columbus came ashore, however, it is generally regarded that he landed at Long Bay where a big stone cross stands. Called Guanahani by the native Lucayan Indians, Columbus renamed the island San Salvador or "Holy Saviour," noting in his journal,
"The beauty of these islands surpasses that of any other and as much as the day surpasses the night in splendour."

Seafood is the staple of the Bahamian diet. Conch (pronounced "konk") is a large type of ocean mollusk that has firm, white, peach-fringed meat. Fresh, uncooked conch is delicious; the conch meat is scored with a knife, and lime juice and spices are sprinkled over the meat. It can also be deep-fried (called "cracked conch") , steamed, added to soups, salads and stews or made into conch chowder and conch fritters. It is known for its alleged aphrodisiac properties. The Bahamian "rock lobster" is a spiny variety without claws that is served broiled, minced or used in salads. Other delicacies include boiled or baked land crabs, which can be seen, before they are cooked, running across the roads after dark...

 Pirates [ Piraten ]
Privateers and pirates were essentially the same thing: privateers simply carried a government license called a "Letter of Marque." Those whose ships were plundered made little distinction, and when potential gain increased, many privateers turned to indiscriminate piracy. For the most part, these marauders were beneficial to the Crown's interests, as they often ransacked enemy merchant ships. However, once a rogue, always a rogue, and the Crown's own ships became fair game when a convenient opportunity arose. By 1700, the pirates actually ruled Nassau (insofar as lawless riot and drunken revelry constitute rule), and chased off to Great Exuma most of what remained of the law-abiding citizenry. Edward Teach, the notorious Blackbeard, took Fort Nassau as his residence and played cat and mouse games with the British Royal Navy. Finally in 1718, the British Crown had had enough and decided that the pirates needed "putting down."

Muziek, Kunst & Cultuur, Evenementen & Entertainment

Een paar eilanden bieden vermaak voor zowel jong als oud, zo kunt u in Nassau, New Providence, bijvoorbeeld uitstekend winkelen, dineren, uitgaan tot in de kleine uurtjes, zwemmen met dolfijnen en natuurlijk genieten van zon, zee en strand.

Bahamaniaanse cultuur is een mix van Afrikaanse, Europese en lokale vormen. Perhaps its most famous export is a rhythmic form of music called junkanoo. The junkanoo was formerly practiced in North Carolina and remnants still exist in Belize, Jamaica and, most commonly, Bermuda.
Ripsaw music comes from the musical traditions of the Turks and Caicos Islands, and is characterized by the use of a saw as the primary instrument. It was brought by immigrants from those islands from the 1920s to about the 40s, who settled on Cat Island, and elsewhere.
