The Bahamas

The archipelagic state of The Bahamas contains more than 700 islands and is located within the Atlantic Ocean, off the southeast coast of the United States of America. Nassau, the capital and largest city, is one of the most popular destinations that Chapman Freeborn charter private jets to and from. If you want to enjoy a trip to this chunk of paradise, let us help take you there.

It’s better in The Bahamas

‘It’s better in The Bahamas’ is the tagline of this small country, and it is little wonder why. With its crystalline waters, superb weather, miles of perfect beaches and a relaxed and laid-back way of life, The Bahamas really does seem like heaven on earth.

Island Life

The coastline of The Bahamas is extensive and mostly idyllic, with 700 islands, 2,400 cays and colourful coral. Away from the hustle and bustle of Nassau, much of The Bahamas is blissfully tranquil and you’ll find yourself slipping into island life incredibly easily.

If you can think of nothing better than relaxing on an impossibly beautiful beach, The Bahamas will not disappoint. Joulter Cays, Goodman’s Bay Beach, the aptly-named Pink Sands Beach, Shroud Cay, Greenwood Beach and Gold Rock Beach are some of the very best in the country.

Get adventurous

If you want to laze on a beach or sun lounger for the duration of your holiday in The Bahamas that’s just fine, but there are plenty of adventurous activities to get involved in too, if you want something a little more energetic.

If you fancy diving, Rose Island has massive coral reefs and shallow waters, making them the ideal starting point for both inexperienced divers and children. More experienced divers can head to Abacos, where they can view the coral caverns and San Jacinto shipwreck.

As well as diving, visitors to The Bahamas can try their hand at kayaking, climbing the 206 feet to the top of Mount Alvernia, snorkelling, sailing and much more.

If you’re travelling with kids (or big kids!) there’s plenty to keep them entertained too. Visit Atlantis Paradise Island, where you’ll find a huge waterpark and aquarium. There’s also Blue Lagoon Island where you can see dolphins and sea lions in their natural habitat on a boat trip, or visit Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre.


There’s plenty of fascinating history to be found in The Bahamas. Visitors should head to Fort Fincastle, a stone fort and former lighthouse that was built in 1793 and its so-called Queen’s Staircase – 66 sloping steps carved into a gorge to allow a short route in case of attack. Fort Charlotte is an excellent British Colonial-era fort overlooking the sprawling harbour of Nassau that visitors also shouldn’t miss. Take a tour or taxi to Clifton Heritage Park, where you can wander along nature trails dotted with historical ruins and take your pick of three secluded beaches.
