Re: 7 days in the Bahamas. What should I put on the list?
If you only have 7 days, it really depends where you are starting out from. By far, the Exumas are the best cruising grounds in the Bahamas. If you are starting and ending your trip in FL, its too far to go. If you are starting and stopping in Nassau, it's a no brainer (assuming you are on a sailboat and not a 40 knot go-fast)...The Bahamas is a big place with lots of diverse things to do and see. If you like beach bars and lots of social activity then you can easily spend a week island hopping in the Abacos. If you want to get off the beaten path you can explore the Berry Islands. If you like shopping, dining out and casinos, you can visit Nassau or Freeport/Lucaya. But, for the clearest water, best divibg/snorkeling and endless deseted white sand beaches...then it's the Exumas, or beyond to the out islands like Cat Island, Long Island, San Salvador, Rum Cay etc.
