The Bahamas are a string of islands off the coast of Florida. Although there are 700 islands in the chain, only 29 of them are inhabited. But residents love living there. The archipelago is home to over 300,000 people.  Are you planning an international move to the Bahamas, or thinking about moving there? Read on to learn what life is like in the Bahamas and why you would love living there.

The Weather

The average temperature in Toronto in December is between two and four degrees Celsius. In contrast, the average temperature during the same month in the Bahamas is around 15 degrees Celsius. You won’t see snow, ice or freezing rain in the Bahamas.

This archipelago enjoys what’s known as a “tropical marine climate,” which means there are fairly high temperatures all year long. Yes, there’s a rainy season. However, many people would gladly trade frigid winter for rain and some wind.

The Natural Beauty

Did you know that there are 2,000 coral reefs stretching from the coast of Florida to the island of Hispaniola (home to Haiti and the Dominican Republic)? The Bahamas’ location puts residents smack dab in the middle of those reefs.

It’s not just the reefs, though. There are thousands of kilometers of coastline. The Lucayan National Park offers a network of underwater caves to interested divers. And of course, there are the pristine white beaches and the crystal clear waters.

The Conveniences and Creature Comforts

One of the best parts of moving to the Bahamas is that you don’t feel as though you’re giving anything up. You don’t have to sacrifice the modern conveniences of your life in Canada because you’ve moved there.

New Providence, the island that’s home to the Bahamas’ capital city of Nassau, boasts hospitals, colleges, hotels and resorts. Freeport, located on Grand Bahama Island, is the country’s second largest city. It also has modern and efficient infrastructure.

Moreover, the Bahamas are easily accessible by air because it’s a popular tourist destination and there’s more than one airport in the archipelago. So, getting back and forth between the Bahamas and Canada isn’t too difficult.

The Stability

One of the advantages of moving to the Bahamas is that you don’t have to worry about economic or government upheaval.

The government and the economy of the Bahamas are both quite stable. Residents aren’t concerned about the risk of unrest or war, which should give people moving there peace of mind and comfort knowing that they and their property will be safe.
