5 Fun Things to do in the Bahamas
1. Get friendly with the Dolphins

The Blue Lagoon Island near Nassau is not only breathtakingly beautiful; it is also a natural dolphin habitat. Known as Dolphin Encounters, the facility offers a range of unique programmes that allow you and your family to get up close and personal with dolphins in its clear blue waters. All its programmes feature an educational segment followed by a hands-on segment where you can experience the once in a lifetime opportunity of literally swimming alongside the dolphins, or simply hugging and kissing them as you stand on a platform submerged in water. The more apprehensive visitors also have the option of a cheaper programme where you can view the dolphins and take photographs from afar. Whichever option you choose, it promises to be a fun-filled day for the entire family.

2. Explore what may be relics from Atlantis

For the history buff, the curious myth-seeker or perhaps simply the diver who wants an unusual diving experience, the island of North Bimini possesses an interesting attraction. In 1968, underwater discoveries led many to claim that they had found the undersea road to the mythical lost city of Atlantis. Here, you can view interestic relics and form your own conclusion on whether this road truly was part of mythical Atlanta.

3. Take a trip to Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center

The very name of this place demonstrates why it is so different from other zoos or nature parks: it is a three in one mix, one that you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the world. The jungle meets garden meets zoo layout is uniquely stunning, and that does not even take into account the hundreds of animals that call the place home. From endangered Bahamian animals to beautiful birds, reptiles and mammals, you will have an excellent view to interact with these animals in close quarters. A trip to the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center makes for a memorable family experience.

4. Go on the Bahamas Jeep Safari Tours

This is both an educational and thrilling experience that you can partake in on Grand Bahama Island. Together with a guide, go for a ride in an open jeep which will take you to a variety of attractions all over the island, such as beaches, museums, historical places and nature spots. Not only will you get to snap countless pictures of the scenic locations, you will also get to learn a lot of more about Bahamian history and culture.

5. Try your luck at the casinos

The casinos in Bahamas are world-renowned, and are a must-see for any tourist. There are three main casinos here: Isle of Capri Casino on Grand Bahama Island, Crystal Palace Casino on Nassau and Atlantis Paradise Island Casino on Paradise Island. These casinos have different themes and personalities, but are all splendid in their own way. However, do take note that holidaymakers below 18 are not allowed in.
