Quick Guide to Bahamas
As brand advocates go, you don't get better than Christopher Columbus. If the explorer who discovered America likes what you've done with the place, you know you're onto a good thing. Bahamas holidays can stake such a claim - he bumped up against these paradise landscapes in 1492 and changed the course of history in the process. Now, this abundance of islands, islets and cays, nibbled by crystalline cerulean waters and framed by palm trees welcome all sorts of visitors from all over the world - cheers Chris! Although not technically part of the Caribbean, you could be forgiven for forgetting this as you gaze upon clear waters and stunning beaches. A beach holiday in 2016 suddenly looks a lot more luxurious.
The Bahamas aren't just a pretty face, though. There's plenty of history behind those model-gorgeous looks - from pirates, to rum smugglers, from ancient treasure chests and Peter Pan and the Lost Boys (ok...so that one might not be true), it's got the goods to back up its beauty.
