Graced with long stretches of wild beaches bleached white by the year round sunshine and surrounded by turquoise waters alive with tropical life, the Bahamas is a Mecca for divers, sailors and sun worshippers alike. Although often thought to be part of the Caribbean, the Bahamas is an archipelago of 700 islands - each with its own character - plus thousands of islets dotting the ocean 55 miles off the Florida coast.
