Whether you are young or old, have a thirst for action and adventure or crave rest and relaxation, you’ll find the Bahamas to be the perfect Memorial Day vacation spot, with tons of Bahamas tours to choose from.
Things to do in the Bahamas to Relax
If your perfect vacation involves solitude, recharging your batteries, and getting out of the urban jungle and reacquainted with nature, you will find plenty to do in the Bahamas. Beyond the obvious (taking long strolls on the beach or lounging by the pool as tropical breezes gently tousle your hair), there are other relaxing activities from which to choose.
If you will be vacationing in Nassau or Freeport, you’ll find high-end hotels and spas where you can book a suite of pampering, soothing massages, facials, and specialty treatments. The larger Bahamian islands also have world-class golf courses and well-maintained tennis courts. And you’ll find opportunities to relax and recharge with yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi.
Of course, the reason people visit the Bahamas is its stunning beaches and crystal-clear waters. Why not rent a sailboat for the day? Perhaps you’ll select one with a chef who will prepare fresh seafood as you drift through paradise. What could be more relaxing than a lazy day of sailing, punctuated by an occasional dip into the calm, crystalline waters for a leisurely round of snorkeling?
Things to do in the Bahamas to get Your Adrenaline Pumping
If your ideal Memorial Day involves adventure, you will find it in the Bahamas! When you dive beneath the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, you never know what lurks beneath. A close-encounter with a shark or a stingray is a very real possibility when you dive the Bahamas. Few divers have experienced the seemingly endless blue holes that dot the Bahamas. Do you dare to enter these underwater vertical caves? The Bahamas is home to the world’s deepest blue hole that has an underwater entrance. Rent a wave runner, go parasailing, head miles out and deep-sea fish for monster swordfish, tuna, or grouper … the Bahamas puts all of this action at your fingertips. Don’t forget about gambling. In Freeport and Nassau, test your luck at craps, roulette, or a one-armed bandit. Will you cash out or let it ride? What can be more energizing than confronting that decision?
Things to do in the Bahamas Regardless of Who You Are
Regardless of what your perfect Memorial Day vacation looks like, you will find it in the Bahamas. Whether you want to get wet or stay dry, set out for adventure or settle in with a good book, there are some must-experience activities for all visitors. If you’ve never eaten fresh conch, you must try a conch salad or conch fritter. You’ll be hooked! Adults must try at least a sip of a Goombay Smash and sample the local beer, Kalik. (Beware the higher-alcohol content Kalik Gold.) Don’t skip the straw markets where you’ll find an array of local crafts for sale. The end of each perfect day on island should always be marked by watching the sun set over the water.
