The archipelago of Bahamas is made up of 700 islands. The islands are picturesque strips of white sand and attract holidaymakers from around the world who frolic on the beaches and take the opportunity to snorkel and dive in the clear blue waters.Take in the hustle and bustle of the Capital town,Nassau,which still has remnants of old world colonial architecture.The Grand Bahama is a popular tourist destination as it is lined with beach resorts and bars.


Jamaica is the third largest of the Caribbean islands and along with its white beaches and tropical landscape, it has an interesting history. Although Jamaica's capital Kingston has been rocked by recent violence, it is a charming and fun city playing host to colourful festivals. The National Gallery in Jamaica houses the famous statue of the famed singer Bob Marley, who was born there.


Barbados is found in the east of the Caribbean archipelago. Due to its ties to England, it is often labelled - 'Little England'. Visit the waterfront in the capital Bridgetown and travel to the west coast of Barbados for its choral white beaches. The south coast of Barbados is filled with bars and nightclubs for those looking to have fun until all hours of the morning.
