If you are looking for the perfect vacation this summer, consider going to the Bahamas. Yes, the Bahamas is a popular one day cruise port, but, in my opinion, one day is not enough time to spend enjoying the beauty of the Bahamas. Here are some awesome things to do in the Bahamas.
1. Shark Diving — Regular diving is nice and pretty in the Bahamas, but if you go to the Bahamas, spend a couple extra bucks and dive with the sharks. It’s well worth it. The cool thing about the Bahamas is you don’t have to dive in a cage with the sharks. The dive master will take you to a great spot where there are a lot of sharks, draw the sharks in with food (fish food, not people food) and you can enjoy them swimming around you. Make sure to bring a camera, because most people won’t believe the size of the sharks you will be diving with. Don’t be afraid, be rad. Do it!
2. Atlantis — Atlantis is a fancy resort in the Bahamas, and it is awesome. You could spend a week in the resort and not get bored. They have a ton of cool activities, amazing aquariums, and wonderful restaurants. If you can’t afford to stay in the Atlantis (it’s not exactly cheap), then consider getting a day pass to go to the water park. The water park is so much fun. They have great slides, a fun wave pool river, and a slide where you are encased by an aquarium full of sharks. Atlantis is well worth your time.
3. Rent a scooter — If you are interested in seeing other parts of the island, consider renting a scooter. You can find local restaurants, private beaches, and speculate about which house is Anna Nicole Smith’s house. At least, that’s what I did. Make sure to wear a helmet, and don’t forget to bring your license, or they won’t let you rent one.
These are some of the things I consider “must do’s” in the Bahamas. However, if you are simply a beach dweller, grab a book, some cold drinks and your sun screen and spend your whole time in the water. You won’t regret it. The water is clear and warm, making it the perfect place to swim and get a tan.
