12 Instagrammable places in the Bahamas
must-visit countries for anyone who sees themselves as a true traveller. Without further redo, our trip is to the Bahamas! So, apply for your Bahamas visa! But where are the Bahamas? Officially recognized as the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, the Bahamas is a nation in the Atlantic within the Lucayan Archipelago of the West Indies group of islands. Interestingly enough, it occupies 97 per cent of the land area of the archipelago and is home to 88 per cent of the population of the archipelago. More than 700 islands compose the archipelagic state. In the Atlantic Ocean, located to the east of Florida in the United States, north of Cuba and Hispaniola, the islands stretch for some 800 kilometres. Meanwhile, what is the best time to travel to the Bahamas? To be completely honest, from mid-December to mid-April, which is the country’s peak season of tourism, is the best time to travel to the Bahamas. It is also worth mentioning that the islands fall under the hurricane belt, but temperatures here are fantastic year-round, so hurricanes can be a factor between June 1 and Nov. 30. The bulk of these months often come during the rainy season in the region, which can leave you with fewer days spent enjoying the outdoor activities of the islands. Now that we have basic information about our next travel destination, it is time to move to the main part of our article! We will be talking not only about the best places to visit in the Bahamas but also about Instagrammable places on the islands. Who knows, maybe your most liked Instagram photo will be taken in one of these beautiful spots? So, here are the 12 Instagrammable places in the Bahamas.

Plus, it comes complete with oodles of splash pools and twisting water slides. There is the properly-named Leap of Faith for the adrenaline seekers, which shoots travellers easily down the terraces of an Aztec temple, not to mention the fear-inducing Abyss, throwing people 15 meters through a darkened void before reaching the water. Along with a lazy river and shimmering white beaches, there are also adult-only pools with bars and grotto pools to explore.

7. Beautiful Lighthouse Views

In the Bahamas, many lighthouses are waiting to be visited, several dated from as far back as 1817. In Hope City, Abaco, the Elbow Reef Lighthouse is the only remaining hand-turned kerosene-burning beacon. The great thing about the lighthouse is that you will have a panoramic view of Hope Town and Elbow Cay as you ascend the 101 stairs. Make sure to inquire about the Dixon Hill and Inagua Lighthouses during your search for lighthouses in the Bahamas.

8. Meet Iguanas - Guana Cay Adventures
