Contributor DPROV used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this spectacular aerial video of Paradise Island in the Bahamas.  The island sits just off the shore of Nassau, the country's capital city on New Providence.  Once owned by entertainer Merv Griffin, it's now known as the home of the Atlantis resort.  Paradise Island has a long history of appearing in TV shows and movies.  Most famously, the island appeared in two James Bond films: Thunderball (1965, #4 in the series) and Casino Royale (2006, #23).

Sugar Wreck, Bahamas

The roughly 700 islands of the Bahamas archipelago, which sit inside the Bermuda Triangle area of the South Atlantic, have always presented a navigational challenge to the many ships operating in the area.  Contributor and pilot msmember flew his drone over a Bahamas shipwreck, this of a molasses carrier which sank in the early 1900's.  The crystal-blue waters of the South Atlantic Ocean allow the aerial observer to clearly see the outline of the ship, making for an outstanding bird's eye perspective.

Check out the spectacularly blue waters and snow-white sands of the Bahamas in this drone video by top contributor and pilot msember. The video was shot in the northern part of Eleuthera, one of the east-central islands in the archipelago.  The island is situated a bit to the east of Freeport. It's a long, thin island - 180 km (about 110 mi.) long and barely a km wide in parts.  The shots near the 10-second mark are particularly stunning, the blues and whites blended in a way only nature on a tropical island can be.

Despite being spread over hundred of islands, the Bahamas is one of the most urbanized countries in the world.  About 70% of the population of roughly 400,000 lives in the capital city of Nassau, which is on the island of New Providence.  Contributor Visual Euphoria Studios used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this aerial mini-tour of Nassau, which was made famous in part from multiple appearances in the James Bond series, beginning with its fourth installment, Thunderball (1965), starring Sean Connery as 007.

Among the more popular day trips from the Bahamas capital Nassau is Pig Beach, which is located in the Exhuma archipelago of keys (cays).  It's a relatively short boat trip from New Providence Island (where Nassau is located).  Named for its principal full-time "residents", it's not known how the pigs arrived here; various stories abound but none has been proved or disproved.  In this video, you'll get an aerial tour of the famous (and stunningly beautiful) porcine island, courtesy of HarbourSafaris and their DJI drone.

Check out this drone video of Barbary Beach in the Bahamas, compliments of contributor peel_town.  The beach is located on the southern shore of Grand Bahama island, just east of Freeport.  This part of the Bahamas was developed relatively recently.  Greater Freeport owes its existence to an American financier named Wallace Groves; in the 1950's he was granted a large chunk of Grand Bahama to develop with casino properties.  Mission accomplished; Freeport is now the country's second largest city.

Of the 700 islands which make up the archipelago nation of the Bahamas, Long Island is frequently considered the most naturally beautiful.  The island lies about 265 km (around 165 mi.) southeast of Nassau, in its own district.  Long Island is about 130 km (about 80 mi.) long but extremely narrow - only 6 km (around 4 mi.) at its widest point.  Some historians believe that Long Island was the third island visited by Christopher Columbus in his first trip to the "New World", although this is not universally accepted.

A blue hole is a geological oddity caused by underwater sinkholes.  One of the most well known blue holes is Dean's Blue Hole in the South Atlantic island nation of the Bahamas.  It's located on Long Island, one of the easternmost of  the roughly 700 which make up the Bahamas.  The hole is just over 200 meters (around 660 ft.) deep, making it the second deepest blue hole in the world. It's cavern-shaped and is actually wider towards its bottom.   Check out Dean's in this amazing drone shot by top contributor Enrico Pescatini.

The Exhuma Islands are a region of the South Atlantic island nation of the Bahamas.  Located east of Nassau, there are exactly 365 islands in the group - one for each day of the year (except for Leap Years, of course!).  Bisected by the Tropic of Cancer (south of which lies the official "Tropics"), the Exhuma islands are known for their pristine, white sand beaches and inviting crystal blue waters. Top contributor and drone pilot Enrico Pescantini gives us a taste of some of the most beautiful Exhumas in this short, 4K edit.

Here's an awesome aerial view of a gorgeous spot in the northern Bahamas, compliments of contributor davidjramsey.  It is situated on the island of Elbow Cay, which is part of a grouping known as the Abaco Islands in this South Atlantic archipelago.  Elbow Cay lies just a few km/mi. east of Marsh Harbor on Great Abalco Island.  At the :20 mark, you'll get a view of the Elbow Cay Lighthouse; built in 1862, it's one of three manually-operated (kerosene) lighthouses left in the world as of 2019.

Dog Spotted by Drone and Rescued in Bahamas After Hurricane Dorian

Douglas Thron

Top contributor Douglas Thron has gained international recognition for his use of drone photography and video to visually convey the tragedy of natural disasters.  In this video, his skills are put to use in the Bahamas, parts of which were devastated by Hurricane Dorian when one of history's most powerful storms ripped through the islands in August of 2019.  In this case, his drones served an additional purpose - they were used to find rescue dogs that were regularly becoming trapped in the wreckage.

This is a beautiful tribute to the islands of the Bahamas, flown and edited by pilot JerzDrone. He says this footage was taken before Hurricane Dorian, the most powerful tropical cyclone on record to strike the Bahamas hit the island on August 24th, 2019. The Catogry 5 Hurricane is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the country’s history with 56 direct fatalities and more indirect deaths. This video shows the incredible ocean views, palm trees, and beauty the island is typically known for.
