Plan your unforgettable Bahamas family vacations here!    There are 29 islands that make up these islands, with the main ones being New Providence which is home to the capital Nassau and nearby Paradise Island, as well as Grand Bahama Island which has the town of Freeport.  These islands were once a haven for pirates including the famous Blackbeard!

The weather is usually hot and sunny year round-making it a great choice.   Bahamas is a popular port for cruise ships and you will find wonderful day excursions for the family to enjoy. You can swim with the dolphins, relax on the beach or stop by the Pirates museum in Nassau.
