Club Med Columbus Isle


With miles of pure white sand and crystal clear waters, our village of Columbus Isle offers an unrivalled haven for scuba diving. Very little has changed here in over 500 years since Columbus first set foot on the powder-white shores of the "New World." There are still few visitors, no bank, no traffic, and one tiny town. On this untouched jewel of an island, stroll the soft sand of deserted beaches; their translucent waters will dazzle your eyes. The only crowds you'll encounter are underwater - turtles, dolphins, hammerhead sharks, rays and more - swimming in the virgin coral reefs.
When you come up for air after experiencing the world's greatest dive program, the view is just as inspiring. Columbus Isle's exotic collection of international treasures are sprinkled here, there and everywhere, ensconced in brightly painted Bahamian bungalows trimmed in white gingerbread. You'll enjoy one of your finest vacations ever at this gorgeous Finest Village.
