The Commonwealth of the Bahamas is a country located in the Atlantic Ocean. As the Bahamas Political Map shows, the nation lies to the north of Cuba and Hispaniola, north-west of the Turks and Caicos Islands, and south-east of the United States.

The country covers an area of 5,358 square miles. It comprises 29 islands, 661 cays, and 2,387 islets.

The Bahamas political map shows the various islands that make up the nation. The national capital, Nassau is clearly represented in the map. The capital city is located on New Providence Island. The major islands are: Acklins, Berry Islands, Cat Island, Harbour Island, and Grand Cay.

The island group named Acklins is one of the many Bahamian districts. It is located in Bight of Acklins, which may be described as a thin lagoon. The American loyalists were among the earliest Europeans to have settled in the islands.

Cat Island is a part of the central Bahaman region. It is home to Mount Alvernia, which has a height of 206 feet. It also houses a monastery named The Hermitage. John Hawes, who was also known as Brother Jerome, is credited with setting up these buildings.

East Grand Bahama
East Grand Bahama is among the 32 districts in the Caribbean country. Its regional government is headquartered at High Rock, which can be called a comparatively smaller town.

Grand Cay is a part of the Abaco Islands group located in a southern route from Walkers. It is a top tourist destination with Rosie's Place being the numero uno attraction. Besides, tourists can also get their hands on delicacies like cracked conch, lobster gill, turtle steak and grilled grouper.
