Bahamas Hotels

The Bahamas, graced with beautiful beaches of pink sand, breathtaking windswept panoramas and countless opportunities for diving, snorkeling and fishing, are well established as one of the world's top draws for both intrepid explorers and casual vacationers.  An island chain beginning a mere 55 miles east of Miami, Florida, the Bahamas offer an array of tourist hotels, all-inclusive resorts, and even rustic lodges, making staying there a relatively simple endeavor.  Indeed, more than three million travelers each year choose the islands as their prime destination for outdoor sports, sun worship, casino gambling and, on some of the slightly more remote spots, eco-tourism.

Arawak Indians inhabited the islands when Christopher Columbus first set foot in the New World on San Salvador in 1492. British settlement of the islands began in 1647; the islands became a colony in 1783. Since attaining independence from the UK in 1973, The Bahamas have prospered through tourism and international banking and investment management.
