Turquoise Waters Seen From Space

Once known as Hog Island, the luminous turquoise waters of The Bahamas are just as breathtaking from the sky as they are from the ground. Former astronaut Chris Hatfield has gone on record to say that the waters were his favorite view from the International Space Station. Guests at the One&Only Ocean Club will unwind on the pristine private beach and take to the greens for an exceptional round of golf. Operating since 1963, movie stars have been known to retreat to One&Only for a dose of tranquility. Meanwhile, the Ocean Club has made a name for itself in the world of cinema. You don't want to miss her debut in the 2006 remake of Casino Royale.
