If you visualise an island paradise what you are most likely to be picturing in your mind's eye is a landscape very similar to the Bahamas. The beautiful islands of the Bahamas group form a 100,000 square mile archipelago that spans a 500-mile area of some of the clearest water to be found in the entire world.
Comprised of the major islands of Nassau (Paradise) Island and Grand Bahama Island, plus the 700 outer islands, this really is a tropical island paradise. The outer islands include a plethora of uninhabited cays and large rock formations. All of the islands taken together extend to an estimated total land area of some 5,382 square miles. This group of islands also boasts the world's third largest barrier reef and about 14.5% of the world's coral can be found there.
