PLAN YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN THE BAHAMAS
Bahamas is a gorgeous, destination wedding location with seven hundred islands. There is no end when it comes to where to stay, and what to see and do. A Bahamas Destination Wedding is an easy choice for many couples and the region is known for having the clearest waters in the world. Choose the activity and the energy of Nassau/Paradise Island which is the home of the Bahamian national capital, or more remote areas like Harbor Island and the Exumas which are more intimate and relaxing.
Relax on sun-drenched beaches, explore underwater caves, shop for handmade crafts, try some Bahamian rum punch, and swim with dolphins. Each island offers something a little different, so if you have enough time, stay in different areas to create different memories. The Bahamas is also a great honeymoon option as you island hop your way from the wedding ceremony to a romantic, luxurious, and relaxing vacation for two.
Swimming with Pigs
The swimming pigs come out to play when the sun cools down. There are myths and stories of how the swimming pigs of the Bahamas got there. Some believe that they survived a shipwreck while others think that they were left there by pirates who intended them to be a future meal but never came back. Whatever the case, they are interesting swimming companions and one of the top things to do in the Bahamas. The pigs will swim out to your boat as you approach the island and may even hang around, swim with you and have some of your lunch as well.
Relax and Enjoy the “PINK” Sands Beach
There are the common white sand beaches and then there are the rare pink sandy beaches. The most famous is Pink Sands Beach which can be found on Harbor Island. Imagine three miles of picture-perfect pink sand fading off into aqua blue waters. The phenomenal pink color comes from a micro-organism called foraminifera and minuscule pieces of coral and shells that are washed ashore. You really must see it!
Visit Nassau, the Largest City and Capital of the Bahamas
The pride and joy of the Bahamas is Nassau with its historic buildings, iconic beaches and wild hinterland locations like the “paradisiacal Eleuthera” or the “Lucayan National Park”.
