Languages of the Bahamas: The Paradise Island Lighthouse with a boat and trees in the foreground

A Country of only 400,000 people that mainly survives off its financial services and tourism industries, the Bahamas is probably one of those countries you rarely think of, yet the languages of the Bahamas would probably surprise with just how… odd… they are.

Indeed, the country is home to three languages used on a daily basis, as well as dozens of historical and cultural languages, mostly owing to the lack of immigration to the country in recent decades.
