Overview

Hidden guides combine unique travel choices, outdoor adventures and little-known locales into a guide where vacations meet adventures. Each guide includes detailed maps, complete internet information for each listing, highlighted author favorites, suggested itineraries and walking and driving tours. Hidden Bahamas describes the best of both the old and new attractions on these fabled islands. It combines the relaxing atmosphere found in the weather-beaten fishing villages, rum-punch beach bars and Out Islands' hidden beaches with modern-adventure activities. Hidden Bahamas leads to the top spots for sun, sand and sea with descriptions of over 50 islands and cays, including details on over 60 beaches plus 52 snorkeling spots and over 75 scuba diving sites. It provides selective recommendations for accommodations ranging from guesthouses to kitchen-equipped villas and even casino resorts. The author offers opinionated reviews of local dining including the best fresh seafood spots: 19 restaurants serving lobster and 38 offering the locally popular conch. The guide also includes special sections for after-dark fun (or "dark rum fun") at over 40 nightspots and music clubs, and native Caribbean craft shopping at 8 batik studios and 11 workshops for straw-woven items.
