The Bahamas Is Ready to Welcome Birders of All Ages!

Social distancing comes naturally to The Bahamas with 16 main islands, thousands of beaches, vast tracts of land and over 30 National Parks, where more than 300 native and migratory bird species can be seen.

The Bahamas is one of the best places in the region to spot birds in action – especially in the national parks. Some species, such as the Bahamas Oriole and Inagua Woodstar can be found only on one or two islands, others on different combinations of islands, there can be no better reason for island hopping exploration.

Find some of the birding maps and guides here, plus a brochure introduction to the broader range of eco-tours available in the islands. Also see useful links to the on-island guiding services and a listing of the UKs birding tour operators.

With nature in the spotlight now more than ever, we invite you to visit our virtual booth to learn how to make the most of a birding trip to The Bahamas, meet the team at Bahamas National Trust who work tirelessly to protect our precious natural resources, and discover how much The Islands Of The Bahamas have to offer.

Remember too that The Bahamas’ year-long great weather, coupled with its stunning, unspoiled beaches and unparalleled beauty provide the perfect backdrop for your birding memories.
