While travelers to the Bahamas have plenty of ecological splendor to look forward to, they don't have nearly as much variety when it comes to eco-friendly lodging.

Accommodations Map

While you can go on a number of eco-tourism adventures, you won't find much available camping in the Bahamas. Instead, travelers find other ways to stay close to nature.

Staying at a dive resort is one way to incorporate nature into your travels. Fishing lodges, usually found tucked away among the Out Islands, might pique the interest of those with a seafaring spirit. Those who sail the Bahamas on a yacht may choose to stay aboard in a marina to explore all of the islands.

Those looking for less nautical locales can visit any of 12 national parks administered by the Bahamas National Trust. Additionally, more than 240,000 acres of protected land can be found outside of these parks. Even the headquarters of the Bahamas National Trust, The Retreat, is known for its nature, with one of the finest collections of wild palms in the western hemisphere.

Although travelers looking for an eco-friendly vacation might have to forgo camping in the Bahamas, they'll still have plenty to see and do on these islands.
