Hidden Gems in The Bahamas

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 12 February 2019 | Views [38]

The Bahamas are formed of lots of tiny little island, which makes it the ideal place to uncover plenty of hidden local gems. When people think of the perfect tropical getaway, their mind often leaps first to the Bahamas and its sugar-fine sand, clear waters, and of course, adorable sea turtles. If you’re looking to book the trip of a lifetime, here are some hidden gems to keep your eyes peeled for:

Jaws Beach

The city where this beach resides, Nassau, is home to 70% of the Bahamas’ population. The name will probably remind you of the infamous film, which is spot on – as Jaws Beach is in fact just a nickname. Many scenes from the film Jaws: The Revenge were filmed on that very beach. It’s secluded and feels like a private part of the Bahamas paradise.

Deep Water Cay

For those who don’t just want to sun bathe and read a book, Deep Water Cay has an endless array of activities to enjoy in its clear cyan waters. Everything from scuba diving in blue holes to snorkelling through reefs and shoals of glittering fish, as well as paddle boarding and kayaking, are available for everyone to enjoy.

If you are looking to fill your trip to Deep Water Cay and the Bahamas with plenty of activities, but don’t want to constantly travel between the two via ferry or commercial flight, then try renting a private flight to Bahamas. It is luxury incarnate and will make your exotic trip a seamless, dream getaway.


For some people, it’s not just the white sand and clear waters that make for the perfect getaway – it’s the wildlife too. Inagua is home to over 80,000 flamingos, which also happen to be the national bird of The Bahamas. There are also over 140 species of native and foreign bird species, which live alongside the likes of endangered sea turtles. Inagua is also not necessarily an island – as it consists of two separate islands: Great Inagua and Little Inagua. Great Inagua also holds the title of the third largest island in the Bahamas, as it stretches 20 miles long and 55.19 miles wide – that’s a whole lot of paradise!

Cabbage Beach

This little secluded beach keeps getting name-dropped as one of the best beaches in the world. It’s a two-mile stretch of white sand complete with its very own coconut trees and palms. You can rent lounging chairs and umbrellas if the sand and heat get too much by the end of a hard day’s lounging. Sports such as jet skiing and boating are also available along this shoreline. You’ll also find a restaurant and bar named ‘Dune’ which will leave you feeling divine as you eat and drink in one of the most beautiful settings on earth.

While it might feel like months away until your dream vacation, it won’t be long until you find yourself sat on the beach, drinking cocktails and eating conch fritters. The Bahamas are the perfect holiday not just for beach bums, but also for those who love exploring and uncovering hidden stretches of paradise. The wildlife you’ll encounter will make for a pretty good Instagram post, too.
