San Salvador, a paradise island
Located to the east of the archipelago, Club Med Columbus is in San Salvador, one of the smallest islands in the Bahamas. In the middle of a turquoise sea, this jewel is a dream destination to relax and disconnect.
The island of San Salvador is the top of a submerged mountain, offering miles of sandy beaches, coconut trees, as well as rolling hills. It is also a paradise for lovers of water sports, fishing and diving. Its more than 50 dive sites are among the best in the world, thanks to the incredible underwater life of the surrounding waters. The dive sites are accessible to beginners and experienced divers and allow you to admire reefs, wrecks and sharks.
Also known as “the land of lakes”, San Salvador has many bodies of water including, in the center, the Great Lake, nestled in a national park home to iguanas and many species of birds, which connects the main inhabited areas from the island. Watling’s saltwater Blue Hole, located to the west of the island, is also worth a visit.
