Historians think the name “Bahamas” could have come from the Taino language spoken by the area’s First Peoples. The theory is that their ba ha ma meant “big upper middle land.”
The other suggestion, and our preferred explanation, is that the name is from the Spanish baja mar, meaning “shallow water.” We have that shallow water to thank for The Bahamas’ exquisite colour. Sunlight travels through the crystal clear sea, offering visibility to more than 200 feet. It reflects off the white coral sand below and results in this unique palette that has captivated visitors since humankind’s first encounter with these islands. Take it from famed astronaut Chris Hadfield, who has seen views from space that few of us will ever glimpse— views of this entire blue planet. He said, “The most beautiful to me are The Bahamas, the vast glowing reefs of every shade of blue that exists.”
