There's exciting Nassau/Paradise Island with cabarets and a casino. Swinging, glittering Lucaya with restaurants and night life that won't quit. And rustic, sporty Andros. There's seafaring Abaco where they still build fishing boats by hand. Idyllic Exuma. Elegant Eleuthera with pink sand beaches. And Bimini, the \ fishing capital of the world. j 1 " And nice, quiet islands with erS names like Cat Island, Crooked Island and Rum Cay. (Even our islands have islands that you can sail to in a Sunfish.) Because we have more islands, we naturally have more beaches. More golf and tennis. More water sports. More fish to catch. More of everything you go to the islands for. And wherever you go in the Bahamas, our people are as warm as our sunshine. For reservations or our 24-page Bahamas Fact Finder, see your travel agent.
