More tips & insights
on the Bahamas


The Bahamas has no income, inheritance, corporate, or capital gains taxes.


The Bahamas are praised by sport fishermen around the globe.


There are more snorkeling sites than you can count because The Bahamas has the world's third largest coral reef system.


The Bahamas comprise about 700 islands and over 2,500 cays. Approximately 95% of the nation's territory lies underwater. The highest point on land is only 63 meters (206 feet) above sea level.

Geographic location

Geographically, The Bahamas are Atlantic, not Caribbean Islands. This sovereign nation lies just beyond the Caribbean Sea. Because it is Caribbean-like and because most travelers and the travel industry consider it to be Caribbean, I use the Caribbean label in my website.


The official and most prevalent language in the Bahamas is English (with a Brit, not a Yankee accent).
