Let's sail away somewhere, shall we? How about The Bahamas? It's hard to fathom that many of these 700+ islands have endured a complicated and battle-fraught past, especially as you press your toes into the white sand along any of the beaches with a limitless ocean view stretching in front of you. The Bahamas got their name from the Spanish words "baja mar", or shallow sea, and any satellite view of this area will uphold this namesake. Stretching across over 180,000 square miles of ocean space, this is a beautiful wonder of the western Atlantic Ocean, and a wonderful beauty to behold in person.
