7 of the best place to stay in Bahamas
Below is a list (in no particular order) of some of the best place to stay in Bahamas. Each resort has its fair share of activities and day tours at access. These Bahamas luxury resorts are better than the best hotels in Bahamas by a longshot. Here are the best places to stay in the Bahamas:
Harbour Island; home to the long stretches of pink sand beaches in the Bahamas. Dunmore Town features vibrant pastel-colored homes and picturesque neighborhoods.
From The Dunmore, a day trip to Nassau is never out of the question. There, you will find access to any place in the Bahamas as well as most of the on-goings around the island.
The ‘high’ season at Harbour Island begins around mid-December and it lasts usually until mid-April. Although Harbour Island has been able to stay relatively quiet, if you don’t like the tourist en-mass, you may be better suited to finding a time to visit around those dates. However, keep in mind, you will have to battle hurricane season around those times.
Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort
Long Island, Cape Santa Maria which is actually easier to get to than most assume. In many cases, you are two short flights away from an unspoiled paradise away from the crowds. It is one of the best place to stay in Bahamas.
From Long Island, you are only a short cruise away from Great Exuma and George Town.
Although December through April is generally the best time to visit, there are plenty of things to do in Bahamas in the tourism ‘low’ months.
Ocean Club at Four Seasons Resort
Paradise Island, formerly known as Hog Island, is located just off the shore of the capital city of the Bahamas, Nassau. This makes it highly accessible to almost all vacationers. Paradise Island is one of — if not the best place to stay in Bahamas.

Many people prefer to travel to the Bahamas in late-ish September when the water is perhaps warmest, the kids are back in school, and rates are the lowest of the year. This is typically our favorite time to see the Bahamas for exactly these reasons.
Staniel Cay Yacht Club
Staniel Cay, which is located less than 75 miles from Nassau which makes it an ideal location for exotic day trips to Swimming pigs Bahamas or other magnificent wildlife like reef sharks and Bahamas rock iguanas.
Bahamas Air Tours will take you wherever you’d like, including Staniel Cay, which is just a few minute boat ride to the real Exuma pigs in the ocean at Pig Beach. Book your tour today!

Day trips to Staniel Cay are an excellent option when the crowds at beaches nearby Nassau become too much for you. The Bahamas swimming pigs do bring in quite a tourist trail, however, most of the tourism is centralized around Pig Island across the way from Staniel Cay. Staniel Cay provides the main airstrip for day travelers to Pig Beach.
Grand Isle Resort
Great Exuma, a 37-mile stretch of land in the Exuma Cays. It is the largest island of the Exumas which make up 365 of the 700+ islands of the Bahamas. The Exumas are the best place to stay in Bahamas because of the sheer beauty.
Great Exuma, being the largest island of the Exumas, extends throughout a majority of the Bahamas islands and your day excursions vary greatly depending on which part of the island you are staying on. From Grand Isle Resort, you are not too far from George Town, the capital city of the Exumas.
There’s hardly a bad time to visit the Exuma Cays. This region of the Bahamas is known as the most beautiful and bright for a reason and that’s because of the vast amounts of nature and marine life on offer. As like the entire Bahamas, the Exumas also tend to get busier around the holiday season on into April.
Pink Sands Resort
Harbour Island, as previously stated, famous for its pink sands, which Pink Sands Resort cleverly uses as the name of their resort.
Eleuthera, another island of the Bahamas, offers more pink sand beaches, a surfing haven, and pineapple fields as far as the eye can see and it is only a short boat trip from Harbour Island.
In Bahamas travel ‘off’-season, you can typically find discounted group rates, couple rates, or last-minute individual steals at places to stay in the Bahamas.
The Cove Atlantis
The Atlantis Resorts complex is located on Paradise Island which is just a quick shot from the city of Nassau. Paradise Island is connected to New Providence by way of a bridged highway between the two islands. If you are in Nassau, you might as well try our Nassau to Staniel Cay day tour.
