Bahamian art is colorful and full of life, with many artists creating beautiful works inspired by the islands' natural beauty. Traditional Bahamian cuisine consists of seafood-based dishes and a variety of tropical fruits and vegetables. Music is a large part of Bahamian culture, with genres such as calypso, reggae, and goombay all popular on the islands. Bahamian Creole is the official language spoken by the majority of the population and English is widely spoken as well.

Bahamian Climate

The Bahamas boast a tropical climate with abundant sunshine and warm waters. This makes it a paradise for beachgoers. The islands are also safeguarded by a wall of coral reefs that encircle them, protecting them from hurricanes. Furthermore, the area is renowned for its trade winds, which provide a refreshing breeze on hot days.

Legal Requirements

You and your partner must be in The Bahamas for at least 24 hours before applying for a license at the Registrar General’s office in Nassau. Cruise ship guests, however, need a letter from the Ship’s Purser/Guest Services confirming they have been in Bahamian waters for 24 hours. Two witnesses aged 18 or older must sign your marriage license. Witnesses can be provided if needed.
