A gem in the Atlantic Ocean located next to Cuba and Florida in United States of America, Bahamas is a gorgeous island country home to a collection of more than seven hundred big and small islands. The smaller islands include tiny splendorous cays and islets and are made up of calcium carbonate precipitated by organisms living in the coral reefs. Bahamas is blessed with the clearest waters in this world.
There is no defined history of Bahamas recorded before fifteenth century. However, scientific evidences prove that life existed in these ocean land masses since 300 AD. The Lucayans are said to be the first people to settle here. They had migrated from South America, Cuba and India. After a peaceful rule by the British Government, Bahamas became an independent country on July 10, 1973. Today, it is proudly a member of Commonwealth of Nations.
The climate is comfortably warm and windy throughout the year but the months from September to May are considered ideal to plan a visit, as the temperature stays on the cooler side. Due to multiple invasions in past, the country exhibits a unique collage of cultures and traditions. It’s a nation of colours, art, music and dance. Most of the population follows Christianity. The cuisine here is something exciting as well as surprizing, with spicy and quaint flavours and local meats.
You can expect to have the clearest views of the colourful and clean vistas of the world existing underneath the waters. The largest island in the country, Andros, nestles the third largest reef barrier in the world. Tranquil beach walks, amazing water sports, snow white sands, wondrous scenes of vast oceans – a trip to these water jewels will compel you to ponder if there is any truth in stories about the existence of mermaids! Bahamas is stunningly beautiful.
