Like a scattered string of pearls, the islands of the Bahamas stretch from their most northerly point (less than an hour`s flight from Miami) south across 500 miles of the Caribbean Sea. The still-relatively-young commonwealth, which achieved independence in 1973 after 325 years of British rule, encompasses 700 different islands-each with its own character. But whether they`re havens of unspoiled wilderness, decadent celebrity-studded oases, or glitzy gambling and entertainment meccas, all are suffused with the same laid-back, carefree, distinctly Bahamian attitude.

Don`t miss

Getting out on the water - whether by swimming at Harbour Island`s spectacular pink beach, bonefishing off Andros, or whizzing through the massive Atlantis waterpark on Paradise Island.

Taking part in (or at least watching) the wild parades of Junkanoo, the islands` most exuberant local celebration.

Sampling fabulous Bahamian dishes like conch fritters, fried grouper burgers, and stone crab claws—along with bottles of the great local beer, Kalik.
