Bahamas

The Bahamas are simply the perfect, classical Caribbean islands

The Bahamas represent the classic view of a tropical island: The sun blesses the Bahamas in the Caribbean, as seen in the James Bond movie Thunderball from 1965 and in the Pirates of the Caribbean. The islands deliver on all keys from the most delicious hotels, most inflated “here I come” tourists and millionaires and the most beautiful beaches you can fall into paradise sleep on. It is a travel brand bigger than life. A bit like Cote d´Azur and the Riviera, just “with a twist” and really for anyone who can sit quietly in the flight seat long enough to reach all the glories. It is not that expensive at all here. Including that, until recently, they have become outdated, but there are still plenty of drinks and sun umbrellas.

Much of the architecture and lifestyle is influenced by the Englishmen in the 1700s. The characteristic building style was later taken up by the rest of the islands, as a kind of signature. Eleuthera & Harbor Island is the island’s birthplace, it all began here.

What makes Eleuthera & Harbor Island so unique?

Eleuthera is the 4th most populated island with approx. 11,000 inhabitants. Most residents are fishermen or grow pineapples to earn a living or work in the tourist industry.
Eleuthera is made up of small, more or less random, urban communities that have this in common that they are typically a beautiful place near coral reefs by the sea, low-lying green areas in the hinterland and massive decorative rocks.
Harbor Island, on the other hand, is The Bahamas main island. It was named “The Best Island in the Caribbean” by Travel & Leisure magazine a few years ago. Focusing on your trip to the islands in these two locations will give you the most beautiful and representative of the Caribbean.
