Which Bahamas island?

Hi,

I'm struggling to decide on a Bahamas Island (or two) to visit in March next year.

I have been visiting the websites, etc. but am overwhelmed with information. So any advice you could provide would be much appreciated.

Basically, we are in our mid 20s and are looking for:

-beautiful beaches

-sight-seeing (nature or historical)

-somewhere that isn't too difficult to get to

-somewhere a bit lively but where we can still unwind

-we'd like to avoid 'resort' style holidaying where possible.

We'd love to hear your recommendations! Thanks :)

How much time do you have for The Bahamas on your odyssey from Oz? guessing here, but bet you're going to go a lot of places :)

Where will you be right before & right after?

Stepha13 - Nassau AND Long Island or Eleuthera or Great Exuma LOL

Everywhere has beautiful beaches! In Nassau it can be as lively (or not) as you like, there's historical sightseeing, lots of choices for non-resort-style holidaying...

Happy Planning!

Thanks very much for your suggestions Sailexuma and Jungledriver.

We will be heading to LA, Vegas, Cancun/Playa Del Carmen and Miami before and after (not sure which order yet) and would have approximately 5-7 days in the Bahamas.

Steph13 - Sounds like a fun trip! Do you know yet where you'll be staying in Cancun? Are you a party of 2? Do you have a budget for The Bahamas portion for your accommodation? This will be a big help with suggestions, before I come up with something that's too much (or too little!)... :)

Wow, we'll from your itinerary before and after you either:

A. Are party people looking for the mainstream tourism - in which case, stick with Nassau or

B. looking for a complete contrast in which case you should definitely choose an Out Island experience.

Andros - sounds like A & B to me! A - partying done big time before they ever get to The Bahamas, so B - a little r&r will be what they'll need for the Bahama part of the trip! LOL
