Photos of the Week: 7/26/2018: The beautiful Islands of the Bahamas:
If I was to ask the younger generation about where the Bahamas was located, I would get a variety of answers from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. They all seem to know that the Island of the Bahamas are some islands that seem exotic, and when they think of exotic islands they think they must be close to Hawaii. Let’s get the record straight and find them first on the map:
When I first look at the location of the Bahamas, I think it is in the direct path of Hurricanes. Let’s see how they get along with that, and the ability to have a good time:
There are a lot of islands in The Islands Of The Bahamas – 700 in fact. Thirty islands are inhabited, and we’ve included information on 16 of the most visited ones here.
That means you have a wide range of vacation choices starting just 55 miles off the east coast of Florida.
The Bahamas became an independent Commonwealth realm in 1973, retaining the British monarch, then and currently Queen Elizabeth II, as its head of state. In terms of gross domestic product per capita, The Bahamas is one of the richest countries in the Americas (following the United States and Canada), with an economy based on tourism and finance.
Disney has its own private island in the Bahamas called Castaway Cay. It is located near Great Abaco Island and was formerly known as Gorda Cay. In 1997, The Walt Disney Company purchased a 99-year land lease for the cay from the Bahamian government, set to expire in 2096.
NOW BACK TO THE OTHER PHOTOS OF THE BAHAMAS (Just imagine that Disney owns a whole Island. That is one whole island in the Bahamas. That has got to be nice, right?)
That is just a few of the many beautiful photos of the Bahamas. A totally relaxing place, not crowded, and just wonderful, beautiful beaches and a great place to get away.
