Even just uttering the name of this tropical paradise can instantly transport you to a warm beach where you can almost feel the sand between your toes and hear the waves breaking on the shore.
A popular cruise destination, the Bahamas serves up plenty of activities (and opportunities to just kick back) across its 700 islands. From diving and snorkeling to beach combing and lazy afternoons on the sand, you can soak up this locale’s scenery, sun and turquoise waters any way you choose.
Here’s your mini virtual vacation for the day — the beautiful Bahamas in pictures.
