General Information

For a true Bahamian experience all you need to do is relax, because on our island, life is easy. English is spoken, American dollars are on par with Bahamian dollars, the weather’s beautiful and people are friendly. What more do you need to know? Well, in this section you’ll find other practical, good-to-know-before-you-go items, ranging from the latest Nassau Paradise Island news to a short history lesson on The Bahamas pirating past and island fun facts. Learn a little about being Bahamian, and get excited about your visit. All through the islands of The Bahamas, music is woven deeply into the fabric of daily life—so much so that one of the nicknames given to our archipelago is “the Islands of Song”. Musical traditions here reflect both the impact of history on the islands and a homegrown, distinctively national character. Blues and spirituals made their way down from the American South and took on a Bahamian flavor, in breezy seaside church choirs where rhyming spirituals are sung, and on homemade guitars in the hands of virtuoso performers like the legendary Joseph Spence and his contemporary Israel Forbes.
