The Bahamas are great! I love it. I am doing a report on it too. There are always beatiful pictures.

I love the Bahamas. I'm doing a school project on them. The Bahamas are so cool!
Emily Ann Montag · November 8, 2001 - 20:46 EST #3
I'm doing a geography fact book for my social studies teacher and we have to find facts about the Bahamas and find pictures. We found this page had just the right pictures for what he needed and liked. They rock!
anonymous · November 13, 2001 - 16:10 EST #4
Very beautiful photos, but I don't believe Bahamas is only SOL KERZNER'S Hotel.
Gladys · December 5, 2001 - 14:34 EST #5
Very cool.
Beth Pierce · December 6, 2001 - 12:29 EST #6
Your pictures are beautiful. I came to this web page because I am looking for a place to go on vacation later this year and I haven't decided yet where I want to go, but your pictures are excellent.
Alana Marie Johnson · December 19, 2001 - 13:29 EST #7
I want to go to the Bahamas some day soon. These pictures are so pretty. Alana Johnson RED OAK 9th grade

I think the Bahamian islands are great. I think my future will be there! I am also doing a school project on them. THE BAHAMAS KICK BUTT!

Woo-hooo, the Bahamas!! It's so pretty!!! Tee-hee.
Bryon · January 17, 2002 - 13:01 EST #10
Perfect pictures for my project. It looks great!!!
Nicole Dilworth · January 24, 2002 - 20:21 EST #11
Hey. My name is Nicole Dilworth and I love coming on the internet just to look up all the pictures. My mom and family always want to go there for vacation, it's just that we don't have the money and my birthday is coming up and they want it to be special because I'm turning 12 years old. I was watching Mary-Kate and Ashley's new movie "Holiday in the Sun" and I saw the motel and I just fell in love right when i saw it. I told my mom I want to go there for my birthday but she said that we don't have the money and I just started to cry. This is my dreamland. If I had one place to go in my whole life I would pick here because it is so nice and beautiful and I love swimming with the dolphins. I wish I had a Ski-Doo but we dont have the money. If you would please e-mail me back on where to get really cheap tickets, I would be so happy. Nicole Dilworth
Colin Kopp · February 4, 2002 - 18:38 EST #12
I've been to the Bahamas and these photos don't come close to doing it justice. The Bahamas are majestical, euphoric, and beautiful. In other words, "majephoriful." San Salvador is where I visited. It's a wonderfully primitive island. I strongly recommend this island; it hasn't yet been jaded by tourism and commercialism.
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · February 5, 2002 - 01:49 EST #13
Colin - well it will be jaded if enough people take you up on your recommendation. *grin*
anonymous · February 7, 2002 - 15:53 EST #14
There should be more pictures of the inside!
Tabatha · March 6, 2002 - 09:04 EST #15
I love the Bahamas and love the pictures. These pictures are very helpful for school projects.
anonymous · March 19, 2002 - 07:04 EST #16
I have been searching for the national symbols online and arrived at your very interesting site. Couldn't find them but glad I found you!
Ashley · April 10, 2002 - 18:40 EST #17
I am doing a report on the Bahamas and this web site and pictures are really helpful!!! I also want to go there for vacation!!!!
Jennifer Marie · April 20, 2002 - 15:32 EST #18
You need more photos. I like being able to see the place a lot before I make reservations.
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · April 20, 2002 - 15:49 EST #19
Jennifer - but the point you seem to be missing is that these desktop wallpaper pages were never (and will never be) intended as a travel brochure.

I'd recommend the photo gallery.
Julie · April 20, 2002 - 22:21 EST #20
These pictures are super!! They are just what I needed!! Score!! I hope I get an A+ on this project. My project and anyone else's project that gets pictures from your site is riding on your hands!
anonymous · April 29, 2002 - 12:33 EST #21
I'm doing a report on the Bahamas and I found really cool pictures and information. The Bahamas are so cool.
Sarah · May 2, 2002 - 17:24 EST #22
I am also doing a project on the Bahamas! Thank you. These beautiful pictures will come in handy for my travel guide assignment! :-)
Kristi · May 7, 2002 - 19:36 EST #23
I came to this site because I was doing a report for school and I thought that these pictures were very nice. I showed them to my teacher and he loved them, too!
Alyssa · May 15, 2002 - 14:02 EST #24
Your pictures are great!!!!
Amanda · May 19, 2002 - 21:06 EST #25
These pictures are so great! I wanted to get wallpaper but when I saw these pictures I got carried away and I had to learn more about the Bahamas. Then I saw Holiday In The Sun staring Mary-Kate and Ashley and I was glad I had all this knowledge of the Bahamas. Now I really want to go there in the summer! It has become my dream vacation! I really want to go!
GlitterGirl · May 20, 2002 - 20:05 EST #26
Way cool, dude! I've always wanted to go to the Bahamas but I've never gone. I'm doing a report on the Bahamas.

To the people who did this site, you're awesome!
anonymous · May 27, 2002 - 17:59 EST #27
Hey! I love the pictures! I'm going to the Bahamas next year and I can't wait! They are awesome!
Misty Santos · June 7, 2002 - 12:50 EST #28
I think that the Bahamas are cool. I'm going on a trip this summer and I'm having a quiz on it when I come back to school. So hopefully, when I go, I'll learn everything that I need to know so I can pass the quiz. Always yours,
Victor S. · June 21, 2002 - 15:04 EST #29
This is a very nice place to go. Someday, I pray, I will be able to go visit. I've heard a lot about this place.
Matt N. · June 28, 2002 - 23:45 EST #30
DUDE! Atlantis is the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen. I heard it has the largest marine habitat next to mother nature. Go to to find out more about this really great place!
Jessica Lowe · July 31, 2002 - 12:59 EST #31
Your pictures are nice but they do not do the islands justice. Although the Bahamas is a wonderful place to visit, it's not all what it's cracked up to be because I was born there and lived there for several years, and I'd much rather live in the USA.
anonymous · August 2, 2002 - 11:43 EST #32
I think your pictures are very nice, but I think you should add pictures of wildlife.
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · August 3, 2002 - 00:07 EST #33
We do have pictures of wildlife. Look through the desktop picture archive page.
anonymous · September 2, 2002 - 19:57 EST #34
I went to Atlantis about three weeks ago. I miss it so much. That place is so nice, you just don't understand. It's just really expensive.
Paul · September 3, 2002 - 03:25 EST #35
Really great pictures. I want to go to the Bahamas after seeing such great pictures.
Courtney · September 19, 2002 - 12:03 EST #36
The pictures that were put on this page are so good! I am doing a project for school too and after seeing those pictures, I am really wanting to go to the Bahamas now! Great job!
Hannah · September 23, 2002 - 17:59 EST #37
These pictures are so slammin'. I wish I could live there. I'm doing a project for school. These pictures rock!
Kayla · October 10, 2002 - 12:54 EST #38
These pics are so cool, but they need more ocean pictures and not so many of the hotel. I have been there and it is a beautiful place!
Ali · October 21, 2002 - 16:13 EST #39
Really cool pictures of the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. I've been to Atlantis about five times. My family and I just can't get enough of it. Oh, and to the one who said these were pictures of the Sol Kerzner hotel, no, these are pictures of the Royal Tower at the Atlantis Resort.
Kaylie S. · November 5, 2002 - 23:17 EST #40
These pictures are very good. I'm doing a project that's due next week . With these pictures, I think I will like doing the project more than I originally did.
Laura · December 11, 2002 - 15:31 EST #41
What is the second picture in the Bahamas section? What is it called? Would it happen the be the Atlantis resort?
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · December 11, 2002 - 19:17 EST #42
Laura - yes, it's the Atlantis resort. Most (all?) of these pictures are from there.
Kimberlee · January 8, 2003 - 19:24 EST #43
Hey you guys. I am a Bahamian. I live in Nassau. The Bahamas really is a cool place and I love living there, except it gets REALLY hot sometimes, although you tourists from cold places probably like that. Hah. So anyway, the pictures above are off the chains! That means they are cool. However, I think that all you guys who want to come here really should. I guarantee that you will enjoy it and want to keep coming back. It truly is an experience. If you go to Nassau, which is the most populated island in the Bahamas, then Grand Bahama, I can recommend a few things to do that you'll most likely love. Do the Dolphin Experience, go to the hotel Atlantis even if you don't stay in it (it's really expensive), and go to our Straw Market downtown. You can get your hair braided (guys too) and find some 'fwesh' (that means awesome) stuff to take back with you as souvenirs. Hope I helped a bit. If you have any questions or anything, my e-mail is given. :) :D :P

(I never realized how many people do projects on the Bahamas! Wow!)
Deon Jones · February 1, 2003 - 16:20 EST #44
I am doing a project on the Bahamas. You and your parents should go there. I've been there.
Hector Cuevas · February 14, 2003 - 16:38 EST #45
These pictures will help me with future trips.
anonymous · March 17, 2003 - 12:40 EST #46
Those pictures were really nice. I would like to go there some day.
anonymous · March 19, 2003 - 12:48 EST #47
I went to the Bahamas a few years ago and it was great. It was nice and hot and the trip was a blast.
Karri · March 21, 2003 - 16:10 EST #48
Hi!! These pictures are incredible. They just make my site on the Bahamas more visible! I'm going there this spring break. I'm dying to be there right now. I'm just so excited. I'm really just searching for interesting places to go visit, have fun, and chill!
Tabby · March 22, 2003 - 13:58 EST #49
Thank you so much for creating this web site! I needed something like this on my desktop.
Kendra · April 3, 2003 - 16:46 EST #50
Alema · April 10, 2003 - 17:09 EST #51
This site is awesome! I love it so much. I chose the first picture as my desktop wallpaper. That's how much I love it! I just wish I could go to the Bahamas some time and see for myself how beautiful it is. I've been talking about going there for the last couple of months. I even have travel magazines and I look through them as much as I can and cut out pictures! But I know for sure that I won't be going there soon. I could never afford a trip like this. Only in my dreams!
Tina · April 11, 2003 - 19:11 EST #52
Wow! Your pictures are gorgeous. I went to the Bahamas last year and it was wonderful. There is TONS of stuff to do there (many water activities. Many of my friends who went there told me it wasn't fun at all, but if you really want to go, take my advice--go on a cruise! You'll love it. I hope anyone who is deciding to go there will have a wonderful time.
Julie · April 29, 2003 - 13:23 EST #53
This looks like a really nice place to stay when you vacation in the Bahamas, but I still don't know the name of it.
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · April 29, 2003 - 20:20 EST #54
Julie - it's already been commented above that this is the Atlantis Hotel.
Lindsey · May 9, 2003 - 20:41 EST #55
I have been to Atlantis, Bahamas. Each time it's mentioned, I think, "Wow, I went to a really neat and famous place!"
April Garrant · May 26, 2003 - 13:45 EST #56
Hey hey--I needed a picture for my desktop on my computer and I found it! This site is very cool. Thanks!
Tovah · June 9, 2003 - 06:55 EST #57
I went to the Bahamas a while ago and I will never forget it. The people were amazing. We went to Salt Cay and it was so beautiful. Someday I will go back and, next time, I won't go with my mom. I was too young then to go by myself. I got my hair braided in the capital--Nassau I think. The lady did 158 braids and it only took her an hour and 10 minutes. I was amazed. I met a lot of interesting people. I would recommend that anyone should go there.
anonymous · August 17, 2003 - 14:38 EST #58
Thanks for the great pictures. You helped me on my way to an A!!!!
anonymous · October 5, 2003 - 17:33 EST #59
I loved all the pictures, but they are not what I needed. I needed pictures of the islands--not so much of the hotel you visited. Everyone says, "oh, how beautiful. I want to visit the Bahamas. They are beautiful!" But they really haven't seen anything, yet. These are only pictures of hotels. All the hotels are pretty and beautiful, but wait 'til you see the island. That's what I was looking for. For now, I have no clue what the islands look like because I only saw the hotel. Some people, like Nicole Dilworth (entry from January 24, 2002), don't have enough money to go there and want to brag about how unfortunate she is. That is NOT cool. That looks stupid.

Love, from Puerto Rico (more beautiful than the Bahamas! You should go!)
anonymous · October 5, 2003 - 17:41 EST #60
Hey it's the braggy girl from on top ! I'm sorry about that i'm just frustated because I can't find any pictures, tell me if someone finds anything. I don't know how you are going to contact me but you'll find me ! Well, thanks for the help anyway. love anonymous from Puerto Rico ("Oh not you again")
Dinam · October 14, 2003 - 20:56 EST #61
Great photos. It's so beautiful and natural. I hope to pass by one day.
Anonymous · October 16, 2003 - 01:45 EST #62
I am a Bahamian studying in Canada, and I would not want to live anywhere else. The Bahamas is blessed with great weather, natural beauty, and wonderful people. Yeah we are expensive, but you get your money's worth. To Jessica Lowe, the The Bahamas is all it is cracked up to be. Every country has its positives and negatives, and the Bahamas is no different. You don't do your birthplace any justice by downing it.
Dance Hall Prince · November 29, 2003 - 23:37 EST #63
I am glad that you all don't have the silly idea that we still live in thatch houses or that our houses are on the coast or that we wear little clothing to cover our loines.
Tricia · December 2, 2003 - 14:25 EST #64
My daughter (age 17) and I went to the Bahamas in July 2003. We have never been to a more magical place. Bahamian people do not have high stress levels like people here do! What are we doing to ourselves? I will absolutely take another trip to the Bahamas some day.
Capri Rogers · December 12, 2003 - 08:27 EST #65
This website is really helpful in my search for pictures on the Bahamas. I really got a lot from this website.
Astella · December 13, 2003 - 21:28 EST #66
The Bahamas is cool I love it, It has everything i love it, it has beaches rides fantastic hotels and great parties in the evening.
Brent · December 28, 2003 - 19:49 EST #67
All i can say is Atlantis offers you more than your average hotel or even resort.The whole point of my trip was just to play blackjack and craps but as soon as I arrived I quickly found out that pictures cannot even describe the resort.I stayed in the coral towers which offers a magnificent lounge downstairs which is just a short walk past the shops to the casino.The beach is beautiful and so are the women.I will be going back this coming July once agian to repeat this incredible adventure.
David Varin · December 29, 2003 - 21:41 EST #68
I've always wanted to go to the Bahamas. I saw a picture of the Bahamas on TV and thought it was beautiful. If I had one place to go, it would be the Bahamas. I hope I will be able to go!
Anastasia Collins · January 8, 2004 - 13:15 EST #69
I am doing a report on the Bahamas and it is so easy because there are a lot of things you can do there. I have always wanted to go. I think it is so fascinating and cool.
Josey · January 29, 2004 - 19:27 EST #70
So beautiful. I love the Bahamas.
Kyle's girl · January 30, 2004 - 10:57 EST #71
These are good pictures, but they need to have people in them. I can't find any with people for my report.
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · January 30, 2004 - 18:23 EST #72
Hello Kyle's girl - as we frequently point out, the purpose of the photos we offer are mainly as desktop wallpaper images. Photos of people may not generally be as desirable for a desktop photo so much as landscapes like these.
Aubree · February 17, 2004 - 17:56 EST #73
Thanks for the awesome pictures!
anonymous · February 24, 2004 - 16:32 EST #74
I love the pictures of the Bahamas. They are awesome. I'm in seventh grade and am going to the Bahamas with my aunt when school gets out. I was going to a lot of web sites and couldn't find good pictures, but these are really awesome. They really make me want to go. I put one of them on my computer. Thanks.
Marissa · March 11, 2004 - 11:48 EST #75
I just got back from the Bahamas and the pictures look exactly the same. It's freaky, because I have been there and the memories I have kept.
anonymous · March 11, 2004 - 18:24 EST #76
I've always wanted to go to atlantis and now i'm doing research on it for school so now i want to go even more than i did before these are great pictures and they have helped me alot with my project.
Jessica · March 15, 2004 - 00:35 EST #77
I'm doing a project on the Bahamas for art. I have to learn about the arts of Bahamas. Not only does the art looked beautiful but so does the island itself.I'm really glad that I choose this country to reshearch.
anonymous · March 30, 2004 - 11:34 EST #78
I live in the Bahamas and while Atlantis is a very nice and prestigious resort, it comes no where near to being what the Bahamas is really about. If you want to show pictures of the Bahamas, Bahamian culture should be shown. The out-islands are also a big part of the spirit and essence that is the Bahamas. Big flashy hotels are not the only thing that should be shown on this site, while it is tantilizing to the imagination of persons who do not live the in the Bahamas, being a local, I can tell you that what should really be shown is unpopulated "virgin" beaches. That is a real vacation, and at least one of the out-islands should be visited while vacationing in the Bahamas, even if it is just for a day or two, and the rest of the time is spent in big hotels.
Rosa Knowles · March 30, 2004 - 14:20 EST #79
I've lived in the Bahamas for a quarter of a century, and can tell you that if Paradise must be here. The real Bahamas is not what the tourists see, it's the unspoiled virgin beaches, the genuine, friendly Bahamian people who adhere to a simple life.

The sheer beauty of all the islands takes your breath away. The rural life on the out-islands where they still bake home-made bread every day, and live off the land ans sea. It's a place where there has never been civil war, a place where there is no apartheid, and an economy that is stable. There is a sophistication here that could match any European city, because of the close proximity to the United States, and the ties to Britain. The Bahamas is a financial centre for the Caribbean region, with over 300 offshore banks. I would urge anyone to come here, and see this beautiful gem for yourselves, and experience the unique culture of the Bahamas.
Britney · April 25, 2004 - 21:09 EST #80
Wow this site is awesum!! To all the people who made it ROCK ON!!

The bahamas are SSSSOOOOOO beautiful!!! i love the bahamas!!! it would be cool to work there one day to help sea turtles!!!!
Sienna Williams · December 20, 2004 - 12:41 EST #88
The pictures you see above are of a resort, called Atlantis. It is entirely man made, and does not reflect very much in the way of the beauty that is natural to the Bahamas. While Atlantis is a must-see adventure that is awesome for its grandeur, beauty,and breathtaking lagoons and underwater aquatic marvels, may I suggest to the students who do reports on the Bahamas to look elsewhere for ADDITIONAL, naturally occuring beauty that abounds in the fabulous islands of the Bahamas. Don't forget the native folks in your reports,their colorful history, as they are truly wonderful hosts to the many visitors who frequent their many islands. Atlantis is one small spark off of one of the Atlantic oceans' jewels, the islands of the Bahamas.
anonymous · February 1, 2005 - 16:42 EST #89
I absulutily love the bahamas. It is so beautiful.
Mark Eirris Macon Jr. · February 6, 2005 - 15:19 EST #90
I think the Bahamas looks cool and very interesting!
Monnie · February 26, 2005 - 21:13 EST #91
These pictures are gorgeous!... Try visiting Grand Bahama, Harbour Island, Abaco, Bimini and post some lovely pictures of the beaches there. Do you know what is beautiful.... Sweetings Cay! Its just off shore of Grand Bahama! Especially when the tide is low, when looking and the water... seeing the sun glow on it and being able to walk on the pure sand is an awesome experience. Nassau is the Party Honesty you would enjoy a fun ... freaky time there..., has more clubs and etc. But if you wish to relax and unwind, Grand Bahama is exactly where you should be going. The water is so clear makes you want to jump with overwhelming shock at how beautiful it is! Awesome!... if your wondering... yep! I live here! lol
Alysa Kiraly · April 26, 2005 - 17:26 EST #92
My aunt travels alot and she went to the Bahamas for her vacation.She brought me lots of wonderful things.Iloved all the pictures. They were beautiful.

Beautiful Mexican · September 27, 2005 - 12:35 EST #96
This September I went to Atlantis at the Bahamas. I love the Bahamas because I felt in love, with this guy from England, but There's a problem I couldn't ask for his E- mail, 'cause I had to move to an other place, so I'm always going to remember Atlantis and him.
Zyrika Roshell Brown · September 27, 2005 - 13:21 EST #97
I love them bahamas they are so great a lot of new things that you can see and a lot of great things that you can see like on the beach there are a lot of good visuals that you can see and the sunset is so great and i am doing a powerpoint over it in school so if you have never been to the bahamas or never researched over it then you need to because it is a great place Love, Always Zyrika Brown from Paris High School.
Corrinne · October 6, 2005 - 22:08 EST #98
The whole Bahamas is 'da best'. The best place to live, the best place to vacation, the best 'ery-ting'. All the islands are beautiful, wonderful, fantastic, terrific. The people are also beautiful, awesome, terrifc. Take my words 4 it, ive lived here all my life and i thank God i was born here. I luv (love) the Bahamas and i wouldn't trade it 4 the world.

all i can say is wow! those are some beatiful photos
Bahamian · December 22, 2005 - 09:13 EST #107
Some facts for those doing projects:

1. Atlantis is the hotel
2. Paradise Island, formerly known as Hog Island really is just a Cay, off the island of New Providence.
They are conveniently connected by two bridges.

3. Nassau is the city of New Providence, the island, which is only one of 700 islands and Cays which all make up THE BAHAMA ISLANDS (THE BAHAMAS).

4. Bahamas is short for The Bahama Islands.
5. While all the rave is about Atlantis, it is only a minute part of The Bahamas.

Nassau is not the island; Atlantis is not the island, just the hotel, which covers most of the cay, known as Paradise Island.

I love the Bahamas, but all of you who continue to talk about the Atlantis it is a great place but there is much more to the bahamas before atlantis came along, we have soooooooooooo many more islands reefs and cays that are breath taking, differnt sites that one can see, like the queen's stair case, all of the forts ext. I think that Abaco is one of the most bueatiful islands in the bahamas especially treasure cay, the sand is like touching sugar and the sea is like none i have seen. The whole bahamas for that matter is great.The one thing that i can say is that God had to favour us in such a way that we can never explain just looking at this islands in it's self is unexplainable. I think God went on a super rest when he created these islands and cays!!! forever love the bahamas, forever bahamian!!!!!!!!!!!!

Francesco Somma · March 24, 2007 - 07:10 EST #125
I wanted to go to the Bahamas, imaging lonely and white beaches, but these photos shew me that Bahamas are nothing other that a luxurious and very populed place. So good, of course, but not what I want...I think I'm gonna change my destination...
ella alice barratt · March 29, 2007 - 13:44 EST #126
I have never been to the bahamas before, but I would really like to go. my Mum and dad say it's to expentive. its looks really fun, and maybe if I'm good we might be able to go there.

Lori U. · April 18, 2007 - 16:22 EST #128
We went to Atlantis 2 years ago. The place is absolutely awesome. You may thing its crowded there but its really not. The resort is so big that there is PLENTY of room for everyone. A must see, beautiful experience!
T. Black · July 8, 2007 - 17:01 EST #129
I dunno, these photos have man made building s and water. Not impressed.
anonymous · July 31, 2007 - 12:00 EST #130

James · May 4, 2008 - 07:08 EST #138
Hi Kimberlee, would like to mail you but can't find any mail adress, could you mail your adress to: jamesgoonie (at) hotmail (dot) com

thx!! (very important question to ask)
ATPM Staff · May 4, 2008 - 10:24 EST #139
James/Kimberlee - just so you know, James, Kimberlee said she gave her address, but probably missed the fact that right next to the e-mail address field in the comment form, it says (will not be published). This means that ATPM keeps the address in that field for the sole purpose of people who want to allow ATPM to contact them (such as for the checkbox below of being notified of new comments on a page). If someone wants any visitor to have an e-mail address, it must go into the comment body area at their discretion.

Having said that, it should be noted that ATPM doesn't particularly encourage giving out your e-mail address publicly. Doing so invites spam. Yet if you have reason to type it into a comment, that's your choice.
James · May 4, 2008 - 10:52 EST #140
Dear ATPM,

thanks for not deleting my adress! I know that will bring spam to me, but I only use this adress for such purpose... btw: r u from the bahamas (nassau)?

Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · May 4, 2008 - 11:10 EST #141
James - we only delete comments that are inappropriate for a general audience or not on-topic to the page it is posted. As for your e-mail address, as was said above, it's essentially only used for the option of new comment notifications. ATPM *DOES NOT* sell e-mail lists or send unsolicited bulk mail. Period.

No, I am not from the Bahamas. ATPM staff are a world-wide group of volunteers who love Macintosh computing. Our monthly desktop wallpaper images (including this Bahamas set) is just a small part of what our publication is about. (For what little it's worth, I personally happen to be in Florida.)
