#1 Bahamas Beaches

The Bahamas' year-round warm weather makes it a prime spot for a relaxing vacation in the sun, and some of the islands' best places to unwind can be found overlooking the country's clear blue waters. Available beaches on the Bahamas' 700 islands range from water sports-focused sands at mega-resorts like Atlantis, Paradise Island to quiet sanctuaries on private islands. Some are great locales for snorkeling or horseback riding, while others are best suited for lounging with a drink.

Gold Rock Beach in Lucayan National Park (which was featured in two "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies), Pink Sand Beach on Harbour Island (named for its stunning blush shoreline) and the beaches on The Exumas' Stocking Island (where you can swim and feed stingrays) are many travelers' favorite stretches of sand.
