Bahamas Facts

Geography

An archipelago of over 700 islands covering an area of about 100,000 square miles with the northern most islands less than 100 miles from the coast of South Florida. The islands stretch in a North/South layout covering 750 miles with the majority of the island protected by the world’s third largest Barrier Reefs and turquoise blue sand banks. Abaco lies on the north eastern edge of the archipelago and stretches almost 100 miles from north to south.

Population

Only approximately 40 islands are inhabited with an entire country population of 250,000. The majority resides in the capital city of Nassau, with the remainder scattered among outer islands referred to as the "Family Islands", with less than 15,000 on the island of Abaco.

Government

The Commonwealth of the Bahamas became an independent nation from Britain on July 10, 1973. The elected Prime Minister is the head of the Parliamentary Government with a Senate (or Upper House) and a House of Assembly (Lower House).
