June 5, 2019

The Bahamas is known for absolutely amazing weather, beautiful beaches, and endless things to do. Beach lounging, while perfect for some, isn’t for everyone. A little known fact is that sightseeing in the Bahamas goes farther than just a beach - in fact the Bahamas is one of the best spots in the Caribbean for ecosystem. Here are some of the top spots you can visit while in the Bahamas: 

Fern Gully/Josey Cave and Nature Trail
With various bird and local animal species, nature enthusiasts will love the Fern Gully/Josey Cave and Nature Trail. This attraction boosts two of the most unique nature features in the bahamas - Fern Gully and Josey Cave. Fern Gully is a large sinkhole, full of rare species of ferns - hint the name Fern Gully! Not far from Fern Gully is Josey Cave, one of the most unique caverns in the Bahamas. Formed from fossilized reefs, Josey Cave gives a glimpse into the unique geology makeup of the Bahamas - sure to delight any visitors.

Lake Windsor
Also known as Lake Rosa, Lake Windsor is the largest lake in the Bahamas and is home to a flock of Caribbean flamingos - the largest in the northern hemisphere. Caribbean flamingos are the national bird of the Bahamas, and are some of the rarest animals in the world. Only laying one egg a year, the Caribbean flamingo are best known for their bright pink color. 

Andros Nature Conservatory and Trust (ANCAT)
The ANCAT is home nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to the conservation and protection of the Andros Islands and its animal wildlife. With eco, marine, and nature tools the ANCAT works to educate locals and tourists on the importance of conservation. 

Chub Cay Blue Hole 
Located in the Southern Berry Islands Nature Reserve, the Chub Cay Blue Hole is a stunning but ecologically sensitive area. While it is one of the greater fishing spots, it can be hazardous to those approaching the natural wonder.

Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park 
Interested in a quality diving experience? The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is one of the most gorgeous areas to dive in. With visibility up to 100 feet, and warm water temperatures, you’ll have the opportunity to see large schools of reef fish enjoy a large variety of marine life. 

Moriah Harbour Cay National Park 
If marine life isn’t your thing, try exploring at Moriah Harbour Cay National Park - home to a wide variety of bird-life who have chosen to nest in and around the National Park.
