I am considering renting a home for a couple weeks in the Bahama's for me and my adult children next summer. I never realized how many islands there are. Can someone please give me some pointed direction as to which may be the better fit. I have adult aged 20+ aged sons and daughters and they like some night life, it does not have to be upscale but some nice beach bars and such. Daughter likes to shop a bit. Basically we do not want to find ourselves on an island alone but we do not desire chaos either..

1. Re: vacation

You are asking about very small islands/cays. Great Abaco itself does not have much shopping, and the out islands even less. There are some restaurants and bars; I don't party at night, so can't comment on how lively they get.

I would guess Abaco may be the better fit for you, just because of the size and there are more restaurants and shops.
