When it comes to nature, The Bahamas has some of the most intriguing, exotic, and mysterious natural phenomena on the planet: the world's deepest blue hole, third-largest fringing barrier reef, and largest colony of pink flamingos. Nature preserves protect the endangered Bahama Parrot and several species of endangered iguanas.
The exclusive "Blue Flag" Eco-label has been awarded to several marinas that have made the commitment to strict environmental and safety criteria: Atlantis Marina, Bimini Sands Marina, Cape Eleuthera Marina, and Old Bahama Bay Marina. The award is based upon criteria within the following four categories: Environmental Management, Environmental Education and Information, Safety and Service, and Water Quality. The program is operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE); the Bahamas Reef Environmental Education Foundation (BREEF) is the official representative for FEE in The Bahamas.
