Bahamas: Sightseeing

29 islands against a backdrop of blue

Bahamas Sightseeing

Sights in the Bahamas are mostly of the natural variety, although there are some interesting historical buildings in the old part of Nassau, as well as three old forts: Fort Fincastle, Fort Montagu and Fort Charlotte. The traditional pastel colored clapboard houses on the islands are beautiful sights in themselves, such as those in historic Dunmore Town on Harbour Island. Additional sight seeing places of interest in the Bahamas include: the aquariums at Atlantis resort on Paradise Island, Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Center in Nassau, “blue holes” on Andros and Long Island, Hatchet Bay Cave on Eleuthera, the four national parks located on the Abaco Islands, and the many nurse sharks off of Saddleback Cay in the Exumas. Of course, many of the best Bahamian sights are underwater, such as the incredible reefs, colorful marine life and sunken wrecks.
