Weddings in the Bahamas
Scattered across a region of the Caribbean that covers over 100,000 sq. miles, the 700-plus islands of the Bahamas archipelago offer up such wonders that tourism has been flourishing here since the mid-19th Century! Yet despite this group totalling almost 5,400 sq. miles of land area, the total Bahamian population is less than one third of a million, ensuring that, on most of the populated islands you head for, you are going to find plenty of space, peace and tranquillity.
First and foremost, the Bahamas is a beach lovers’ destination. The very simple reason for this is that this Caribbean paradise boasts many beaches that are regarded as the best in the world – none more so than the remarkable stretch of pink sand to be found on Harbour Island. Add to this perhaps the clearest, cleanest area of ocean anywhere on earth, and the Bahamas makes for an unrivalled sun-worshippers nirvana.
It is the clear, shallow seas, in fact, that give the Bahamas their name: Christopher Columbus, when making landfall here during his epic voyage of 1492, took note of the clarity and depth of the waters surrounding the islands and is said to have commented “baja mar”, meaning ‘shallow water’. Before too long, the archipelago was bearing the name ‘The Islands of the Shallow Sea’, or ‘Bahamas’. Needless to say, swimming, snorkelling or diving in the Bahamas is an amazing experience.
The Bahamas is also known as a destination favoured by the rich and moneyed, so it is always within the realms of possibility that you could stroll past a supermodel on a Bahamas beach (pink or otherwise), bump into a Hollywood star or ‘It Girl’ in a restaurant, or spot a Premiership football posing on his yacht. The Bahamas is stylish, classy and chic, and has a tradition for attracting the wealthier tourist that stretches back over decades.
