Bahamas - College or Adult Crowd?

I have always thought that the Bahamas were for the 20's crowd (Daytona Beach Spring Break type). My husband and I are thinking about going to the Bahamas for a week in March and wondered if there was an area less suited to the young crowd and more suited to 30's crowd. We are interested in diving, good restaurants and fun bars.

Certainly, the Out Islands don't attract much of the Spring Break crowd (although the infamous pig roast on Sunday's at Nipper's on Great Guana Cay in the Abacos seems to encourage a special trip...). The Abacos, for example, offer a laid-back experience, where water-related activities rule, and there is low-key (but not dead) nightlife where you can find live music and friendly people. The dining choices are not as vast as Nassau, but if you like seafood, you will be happy.

Avoid Nassau and Grand Bahama Island and you'll avoid the spring breakers.

Hi

Don't forget that the Bahamas is a huge archipelago nation of 700 islands, about 30 of which are inhabited. The Out Islands are quite isolated. However, given that you're interested in diving, good restaurants and fun bars, I suspect that Nassau is your best bet. The others are more for people who want a laid-back vacation in a more isolated setting (excepting maybe Freeport). Plenty of dive sites off New Providence Island, and unlike Terry, I didn't see the least presence of a Spring Break-like crowd. Orange Hill Beach Inn (less expensive, homey inn) and Compass Point (more upscale place) in western New Providence may be 2 places you'd want to consider to avoid spring breakers, although the hotels on Cable Beach and in Nassau are closer to bars and a wider variety of restaurants.
