The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation
Although considered part of the Caribbean, the archipelago that makes up The Islands Of The Bahamas lies well out into the Atlantic, stretching from the eastern coast of Florida to the southeastern tip of Cuba. The Tropic of Cancer runs through the Great Bahama Bank and through Great Exuma.
Tourism is the economic engine of The Bahamas. Located 93 nautical miles from the Port of Miami, 107 nautical miles from Port Everglades and 239 nautical miles from Port Canaveral, The Bahamas has influenced the development of the cruise industry for the Caribbean region. Hosting in excess of 4 million visitors annually, the translucent seas of the 100,000 square-mile archipelago, caters to the world's leading cruise lines and smaller luxury liners.
Renowned for its tranquility and pristine allure, Christopher Columbus reference his landing in the New World as the "Isles of Perpetual June". The people of The Bahamas are friendly and the rhythms of Goombay and Junkanoo and Rake 'n Scrape, Arts and Culture are the heartbeat of the island nation.
