About Bahamas

On October 12th, 1492, Christopher Columbus made his first landing in the 'New World', at San Salvador. Discovery Day has become a public holiday in The Bahamas to commemorate this.

It was another 150 years before the British became the first Europeans to permanently settle here.

Life in The Bahamas was not a holiday in those days, and the British settlers were repeatedly attacked by the Spaniards.

Blackbeard was one of the most infamous pirates who chose to hide out in The Bahamas while running raids in the area, or up the coast to North Carolina.

During prohibition, rum runners also found The Bahamas to be a convenient location while smuggling into the United States.

Independence from Britain was finally achieved on July 10, 1973.
