Honeymoons in the Bahamas begin with backdrops good enough for James Bond and continue with colonial architecture, world class diving destinations, and spectacular cultural sites. Come visit celebrated poet Ashley Saunders' Dolphin House, filled with sea glass, shells, and eclectic artifacts. Drink in world-class luxury at the idyllic resorts on the pink sands of Eleuthera, or live the pirate life in Nassau.
Experience heaven in the Bahamas
Your Bahamas honeymoon would be incomplete without spending some time exploring Great Exuma. The world's first land and sea reserve protects a reef that is regarded as one of the top diving destinations anywhere in the world. Dive on brightly colored coral, animated by the flashes of fish darting between the fronds. You can also enjoy the James Bond lifestyle when you honeymoon in the Bahamas. Thunderball Grotto was used as a location for the Bond movie of the same name but it is also an intriguing dive destination. Close to Staniel Cay, the shallow waters at low tide are ideal for snorkeling, while high tide requires deeper dives.
Beyond the idyllic diving, Nassau is known for its piratical party ambiance. The Georgian town is full of rum-soaked hostelries and 18th-century pirate history. Today the vivacity of Nassau makes it a must on any Bahamas honeymoon itinerary. Meanwhile, Eleuthera's pink beaches with its superb seafood restaurants and boutique spas are a sight to behold. Treat yourself to sublime sea views and some of the nicest resorts on earth. Historic buildings line the streets of bustling Freeport, once the gateway to Maine's hunting grounds. The coastal shopping mecca is well worth a visit, before a trip to the aptly named Paradise Island. One of a long string of pearl-like islands in the region, Paradise is home to the Atlantis resort where you can party until the sun dances on the water at dawn.
