When you think of the Bahamas, often the image of golden sand and crystal blue water comes to mind. While the Bahamas does have some of the most beautiful beaches and vibrant waters the world has to offer, there is a plethora of other activities and fun to be had. Here is a list of fun things to do in the Bahamas:
Visit Pig Beach
Everyone has seen a pig walk, no one has seen a pig fly, BUT you can see a pig swim. Named after its inhabitants, a pack of wild pigs, you can spend the day frolicking in the crystal clear Bahamian water while swimming with the local pigs. Something we imagine you did not have on your bingo card for things you’re going to do in your life. You do not want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Located on Harbour Island, Tippy’s pulls in people from far and wide. Tippy’s possesses some of the most delicious food and drinks while boasting some of the friendliest staff around. Did we mention Tippy’s also has fantastic views and live music? Go check it out for yourself!
When it comes to a Bahamas vacation, there is a lot to see on land, but there is a whole load to observe out at sea. Heading out on a boat tour not only allows for exploration of other Bahamian islands but also a chance to explore what is under the surface level. If you are an adventurous type, going on a snorkeling or diving tour, like the ones offered by Island Time Charters, Exuma Water Sports, and Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas gives you a chance to experience the beautiful Bahamian waters. You will see beautiful coral reefs and swim with multitudes of aquatic life, such as tropical fish, stingrays, sea turtles, dolphins, and sharks (if you’re brave enough).
John Watling’s Distillery
Something that the Caribbean and the Bahamas is known for is its rum. If you are looking for a nice little break from the beach, swimming, and boating, John Watling’s Distillery affords you to chance to tour and taste some homemade Bahamian rum. Other spirits offered include vodka filtered with pink sand from Eleuthera and gin that has been infused by plants from Andros. So even if you’re not a rum drinker, this could be a fun activity for you!
