The Bahamas, or Commonwealth of The Bahamas, consists of more than 3,000 islands located in the Atlantic Ocean, north of Cuba.
The Taino people, later known as the Lucayan people, were the first known inhabitants, who migrated from Hispaniola and Cuba around the 800s–1000s AD. At the time of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in 1492 there were approximately 30,000 Lucayan inhabitants.
In the 1700’s the Bahamas became a haven for pirates, including Blackbeard. The British in 1718 made Bahamas a crown colony, in an effort to put an end to the ‘Pirate republic’.
1973 was a very big year for The Bahamas; Bahamas gained independence on 22 June 1973, joined the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank on 22 August 1973, and joined the United Nations on 18 September 1973.
Present day Bahamas, as this design suggests, offers some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. It’s no wonder 50% of GDP in Bahamas, and 50% of employment is from tourism.
