Bahamas Introduction

Bahamas are a chain of islands forming an independent nation in the northern Caribbean Sea.

The island chain (called an archipelago) comprises 700 islands and 2,000 cays (low sand banks). Only 30 to 40 of the islands are inhabited.

A Short Background

Since attaining independence from the UK in 1973, The Bahamas have prospered through tourism and international banking and investment management.

Because of its geography, the country is a major transshipment point for illegal drugs, particularly shipments to the US, and its territory is used for smuggling illegal migrants into the US.
