The Bahamas, made up of hundreds of islands stretching southeast from Florida into the Atlantic Ocean, is ideal for lovers of white sand beaches, azure skies and island living. While much of the urban culture is focused on Nassau and Grand Bahama Island, there are ample opportunities to wander, from sailing in the Abacos, to visiting the world's third largest barrier reef off the coast of Andros, to the still sparsely inhabited island of Mayagua.

27122 Goal Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
A perfect beach counterpart to my other favorite place on Harbour Island (The Landing) is The Dunmore. I immediately felt home. The Dunmore is relaxed, low key and true to its surroundings. They only have 16 cottages, all well designed, in a...

The Alma G is a freighter that blew ashore during Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Rent a boat in Treasure Cay and head to Guana Cay for a day of snorkeling on the Atlantic side of the island. On your way from Treasure Cay, the Alma G will be visible off...

West End, The Bahamas
Gorgeous exclusive-use villa on Grand Bahama's West End. It was great crashing here for a few days while exploring the island's overlooked national parks and pristine beaches. The local delicacies - conch fritters!! - prepared by the chefs were...

Bay St, Harbour Island, The Bahamas
Venturing to the other side of Harbour Island, I stumbled into The Landing just when they were beginning to infuse a new batch of Afro Head vodkas and rums by hand. Brilliant timing! I was quickly invited to partake in a little side-by-side...

Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
As unappetizing as that may sound–this Bahamian dish is truly DIVINE! Sip Sip (on the beach) has boiled fish on their menu: Sundays only! I make sure to include Sundays in my Harbour Island travel plans just to get my fix. Sip Sip opens for lunch...

One Ocean Drive, Nassau, The Bahamas
When old money comes to Nassau's Paradise Island, The Ocean Club is where it prefers to stay. That's the way things have been since 1962, when the serenely posh resort opened along a dazzling stretch of sand known as Cabbage Beach. The 105-room...
