Today we are celebrating the 50th Independence of the Islands of the Bahamas.

The Bahamas is an archipelago with over 700 islands and cays in the Atlantic Ocean, southeast of Florida in the United States. While it’s not possible to list all the islands individually, I can provide some information about the major islands in the Bahamas:

Grand Bahama: The second most populous island, located to the northwest of New Providence. It’s known for its beautiful beaches, the city of Freeport, and the Lucayan National Park.

Abaco Islands: This island group is situated east of Grand Bahama. It includes Great Abaco and Little Abaco islands and is renowned for its sailing and boating opportunities and charming settlements like Marsh Harbour and Hope Town.
