The northernmost, Grand Bahama, and Paradise Island, home to many large-scale hotels, are among the best known. Scuba diving and snorkeling sites include the massive Andros Barrier Reef, Thunderball Grotto (used in James Bond films) and the black-coral gardens off Bimini.

If you prefer to mingle with the dolphins, Dolphin Cay is the ideal spot. There, visitors can swim with the well-trained dolphins and savor this one-of-a-kind experience. Before you retire for the evening, you are welcome to sip a cocktail in the lounge or shake a leg at the Aura Nightclub.
  • City : Grand Bahama
The Grand Bahama Island is located in the north eastern region of the island chain. Visitors can get a glimpse of the local way of life when they engage in the people-to-people experience. Tourists are paired with local ambassadors who show them around and they are able to mix and mingle and get a better understanding of the Bahamian lifestyle. This island is also a natural paradise as the Grand Bahama is home to 18 species of birds that are unique to the Bahamas. In addition to this, visitors can explore the Petersen Cay National Park or dive and explore the huge underwater cave system. For history buffs, touring some of the old settlements, like Pinder’s Point or William’s Town, will be ideal activities.
  • City : Bimini
Bimini is composed of three islands: North Bimini, South Bimini and East Bimini. Bimini is considered to be the fishing capital of the Bahamas and big game fishing is a regular activity in the waters of Bimini. As Bimini is quite close to Florida, many Americans travel to the islands to engage in fishing and many tourists also engage in scuba diving and snorkeling. What is intriguing too is that Bimini is home to many shipwrecks, making the area a fascinating place to explore underwater shipwrecks. One of the most popular shipwrecks is the SS Sapona which occurred back in 1926. Bimini was also once the home of famous author Ernest Hemingway, who wrote The Old Man and The Sea.

In addition to this, Andros is not as developed as some of the other islands in the chain.
