Bimini Island – Being the closest Bahamas island to the coast of Florida (you can see the glow of Miami Beach at night) has made this charming island a popular destination for American visitors.

Berry Islands – The Berry Islands are a chain of islands in the northwestern part of the Out Islands.

Furthermore, Chub Cay is known the “the billfish capital of the Bahamas”.
Eleuthera – Miles of glistening pink & white sand beaches, serene colonial villages and rolling acres of pineapple plantations make the Bahamas Island of Eleuthera a destination of the most casually sophisticated. Also, Harbour Island reminds many visitors of a miniature Bermuda with its Georgian architecture fronting fabulous beaches of coral pink sand.

The Exuma Islands are a collection of some 365 cays and islands stretching over 120 miles, supported at the southern end by two main islands, Great Exuma and Little Exuma.
