Select the beach and search places to stay
OK, so this is 11 but we can keep going, there are just too many beautiful beaches to count and yes, Eleuthera is hogging the top spots. Unless you are specifically planning your vacation around a specific beach, you could vacation almost anywhere in The Bahamas and the one thing you can consistently count on are beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters.
Remember to take snorkeling gear because beaches and coral reefs go together like gin and coconut water. Also, pack a cooler with refreshments and a light lunch and don't forget the beach umbrella. If you are staying at a boutique resort the concierge or reception desk can assist you with your preparation. If you really love the beach then a beachfront rental home is the ideal place to relax and rejuvenate.
