Visit The Out Islands
The Out Islands of the Bahamas, also known as the Family Islands, are a group of islands located outside of the main island of New Providence, which is home to the capital city of Nassau. There are more than 700 islands in the Bahamas, but the Out Islands refer specifically to the islands that are less developed and less frequented by tourists. Some of the most popular Out Islands include:
- Abaco Islands
- Andros Island
- Eleuthera Island
- Exuma Islands
- Cat Island
- Long Island
- Bimini Islands
- San Salvador Island

These islands offer a quieter and more laid-back atmosphere compared to the bustling cities on New Providence Island. Visitors can enjoy pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and a variety of outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, diving, and snorkeling. Each island also has its own unique culture and history to explore.
