About the Bahamas

The Bahamas is a chain of islands located along the Caribbean Sea and Straits of Florida. It consists of about 700 islands scattered in the North Atlantic Ocean. But only 31 of them are inhabited with human settlements.

The chain of islands are roughly situated southeast of Florida and Northeast of Cuba. In general, the terrain is long, flat and long with some low-rounded hills scattered across its islands.

Citizens of The Bahamas do not have the burden of paying income tax. It’s also only one of two countries to have the word “The” in its name. The other country is in Africa known as The Gambia.
