The Bahamas is a magical place where you can find the lost world of Atlantis and explore the more than 100,000 square miles of the clearest, bluest waters on earth. In fact, Chris Hadfield, Canadian’s pre-eminent astronaut, said when asked about the views from the International Space Station that “The most beautiful to me are The Bahamas, the vast glowing reefs of every shade of blue that exists.â€ It doesn’t get much better than that! Walk through calm, shallow waters of the Bahamas waters, snorkel right from the beach, explore the colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish and definitely don’t miss seeing the deepest blue hole in the world.
