White sand beaches and turquoise waters are a soothing cure for
whatever ails you. No matter what problems you have, the stunningly
beautiful water will wash them all away in a
sea of turquoise.
Turquoise water is common on all the shallow banks of the Bahamas. The
banks look like giant swimming pools with turquoise gradients spreading out
in all directions. That's one of the attractions of the Bahamas - endless turquoise eye candy everywhere you look.

The Grand Bahamas Banks east of Bimini are sixty miles

Life is good.
