Most tourists visit the Bahamas to enjoy the thrills and comforts of the big all-inclusive resorts with their on-site activities. The nature lovers enjoy exploring the beautiful reefs and wildlife preserves and bargain-hunters really enjoy the duty-free shops! Although the island country consists of more than 700 islands, most tourists stay at Nassau,– you'll find much more than just beaches. The Bahamian capital is where most people live, and receives the largest number of visitors. Think flocks of cruise-ship passengers, traffic, mega hotels, a diverse choice of restaurants and vibrant nightlife.
