The Bahamas was once an ideal refuge for illegal pirates. In fact, it was actually a hot spot for government-sanctioned privateers and pirates were given an official "license to plunder" by the authority of the king. For God and country. Of course!
These days The Bahamas is one of the most preferred tropical locations for weddings and honeymoons. With the exception of hurricane season, the weather is usually always perfect for outside barbecues. It is also an excellent choice for non-Bahamians looking to invest in international real estate – vacation homes, timeshares, etc.
