THE BAHAMAS TRAVEL GUIDE


The Bahamas is made up of more than 700 islands, cays and islets

When Christopher Columbus happened upon the Island of San Salvador — one of 700 islands that dots the 100,000-square-mile archipelago that comprises The Bahamas — he called the area "Baja Mar," or "The Islands of the Shallow Sea." Officially the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, this tropical paradise he “discovered” is a playground of incredible diversity. It's a great vacation spot for water sports, weddings, sailing, swimming, fishing and frolicking at the beach.
