Home to powdery white cays, year-round good weather and the clearest, bluest water in the world, this archipelago of 700 islands is what you might call a little slice of paradise. But there’s a lot more to the Bahamas than millionaire-dollar views and diamond-studded millionaires. Dive a little deeper (or sail a little further) and you’ll discover virgin reefs, historic shipwrecks, pink sand beaches and mangroves flush with exotic birdlife, not to mention some of the most gregarious and welcoming locals you’ll ever meet. The Bahamas might just be the most idyllic vacation spot.
Intrepid is committed to traveling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, local economies and the environment. It's important to remember that what may be acceptable behavior, dress and language in your own country, may not be appropriate in another. Please keep this in mind while traveling.
In Bahamas, we stay in locally run accommodation including guesthouses, smaller-scale hotels and homestays in an effort to support the local economies. We also visit locally-run restaurants and markets where travelers will have opportunities to support local businesses and purchase handicrafts created by local artisans.
