Bahamas is an island country consisting of over 700 islands, cays, and islets in the Atlantic Ocean. They cover 3,884 square km of clear tropical sea, at the top of the Caribbean. Located north of Cuba and Hispaniola, northwest of Turks and Caicos and southeast of Florida. The name Bahamas is derived from the Spanish baja mar, meaning shallow water or sea or low tide, due to the shallow waters in the area. Formed mainly of flat coral, with a few gentle rounded hills, the highest point in the Bahamas is just over 62 metres.
The climate of the Bahamas is a tropical savannah climate. There is only an 8°C difference between the warmest month and coolest month in most of the Bahamas. Like most tropical climates, seasonal rainfall follows the sun, and summer is the wettest season. The Bahamas are often sunny and dry for long periods of time, and average more than 3,000 hours of sunlight a year. Tropical storms and hurricanes can affect the Bahamas.
The character of each of the Bahamian islands is as individual as the people who live there. Sample city style living, by spending time in cosmopolitan Nassau, with its duty free shops, golf, museums and restaurants. For romantic seclusion then lie back and relax on the pristine white sands of Long Island’s deserted beaches. For the more adventurous, experience the challenging wreck sites off the coast of San Salvador, or go snorkelling the clear Caribbean waters. Nature lovers should spend time at Inagua National Park to see the unforgettable spectacle of nesting flamingos and other exotic wildlife. If you have come to the Bahamas to find paradise, charter a sailboat and take a tranquil voyage through the Exumas’ 160 km long string of pristine cays. The Bahamas is also a great destination to Match with Florida.
