With 30 inhabitable islands in a chain of over 700 land masses, the number of places for vacationers to stay in the Bahamas is limitless. Deciding where to set up your Bahamas home base can be a daunting task, but determining what type of surroundings you feel most comfortable in may help you to make the final choice.

Nassau, on New Providence Island, is centrally located among the islands of the Bahamas, and is the capital city of the country. This city is one of the most popular among tourists, and features numerous attractions, plenty of opportunity to participate in watersports, great places to shop, and some delectable eateries as well.

Across the bay from Nassau is Paradise Island, which is connected to the city by a series of bridges. Paradise Island is the epitome of tourism in the Bahamas, with its small area filled with luxury resorts that stay true to the island's name. If your coming to the Bahamas for the tropical weather, relaxation, dining, and great service, this is the place to be. Read more about the Paradise Island Accommodations.

To the northwest of Nassau and Paradise Island is Grand Bahamas Island. Grand Bahamas Island is known for its beaches, marinas, and shopping opportunities (the International Bazaar and Port Lucaya Marketplace to name a few). Spread out over the island are an array of accommodations.

The Out Islands are made up of all of the other islands in the Bahamas. These islands are not typically as popular among tourists, but do have a certain charm to them – they are a much quieter choice for vacationers who want to get away from it all, and those who want to spend time exploring nature will find many more opportunities to do so in the Out Islands. Vacationers who head to the Out Islands will find many more villas and rental properties, rather than the all-inclusive resorts that are popular on Grand Bahamas Island, and in Nassau and Paradise Island, though there are hotels available as well.

Take heed if you choose to book your stay through an on-line travel service. It is not uncommon for these sources to suggest that a hotel is located in a large city, when in fact it is only near that city. Make sure you confirm the location of the place you plan to book from an outside source (such as the hotel's official web site), before you put down a deposit.
