With over 700 beautiful islands making up The Bahamas, deciding on the greatest beaches is a difficult challenge.
Everyone has a favorite among the endless brilliant blue seas bordered by beautiful coral, gentle surf, and pure white beach, and it's probably not yours.
So, whether you're taking a physical flight or prefer a mental vacation, here are the greatest beaches the Caribbean has to offer.
Pink Sands Beach is number one.
The powdered sand here shimmers with a pink light – caused by finely crushed coral – that is a subtle blush by day and a rosy crimson when illuminated by the sunrise or sunset.
Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island has been dubbed the world's most beautiful beach by a host of foreign magazines, and we can't disagree with that, especially after you get beyond the rows of blue-and-white umbrellas and loungers.
2. I adore beaches.
The Love Beaches on Long Island are a lovely stretch of pink-sand beaches near Stella Maris, and they contain a sheltered "swimming pool" (a quiet stretch of water surrounded by rocks) for small ones to paddle in safety.
Cable Beach is number three.
Cable Beach, New Providence's most popular attraction, is three curving miles (five kilometers) of white sand and dazzling blue sea just west of downtown Nassau.
The beach is named after an underwater telegraphic wire that washed ashore here in 1892, and it is flanked by resorts, hotels, and casinos.
It's frequently crowded with vacationing families, spring breakers, water-sports operators, and wandering souvenir merchants.
If you wish to rent a beach chair, pay a day-rate fee at one of the hotels.
4. Nassau's Junkanoo Beach
Junkanoo Beach, located between downtown Nassau and Arawak Cay, is popular with both locals and visitors, and features beach-shack bars, volleyball nets, and a swimming pool.
Gold Rock Beach is number five.
Gold Rock Beach, located in Lucayan National Park on Grand Bahama, is a hidden paradise accessible through a mangrove walk.
There will be more raccoons and seagulls than humans, but keep an eye on your food in the picnic spot along the shore - the raccoons are brazen (but harmless) scavengers.
Stay till low tide and you may stroll for miles.
6. Beach at the Cancer Tropics
This stunning white-sand beach on the Tropic of Cancer is the longest in The Exumas and surprisingly uncrowded.
7. Treasure Cay Beach
Treasure Cay Beach, the pin-up girl of The Abacos, with its white sand and blue shallows, consistently appears on lists of the Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches.
Treasure Cay, located approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of Marsh Harbour, is much more than a resort.
It's a community, hamlet, marina, golf course, and vacation playground surrounded by some of The Abacos' most gorgeous powder-soft beaches.
