This is a tropical anchorage in the sea. An island for dreaming and a refuge where imagination is given wings. When in Central Europe the days are getting shorter and cooler, the islands of the Bahamas shine like twinkling stars in the sky of wanderlust. Sea, sand and wonderful idleness - no less than seven hundred islands are said to stretch in a gigantic arc from the south of Florida to the north of Haiti. All this is a fascinating archipelago of palm trees on white beaches swaying in the warm breeze, hotel complexes exuding a cheerful charm, and houses in the small towns as colorful as wrapped candies. For the writer Ernest Hemingway, these dots in the ocean were the "islands in the stream," and many others claim to have rediscovered the lost Atlantis there.
