Welcome to the... Bahamas


“It’s quite literally heaven on Earth here. Just take one look at any of our breathtaking beaches, said to be sandier than most beaches in the region. Miles of pink or pure white powdery sand. Endless crystal-clear turquoise waves rolling onto the shore. And when you step into the ocean, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how clear the water is. You’ll see everything. Even your toes.”

The Bahamas is a country consisting of more than 3,000 islands, in the Atlantic Ocean, north of Cuba and Hispaniola.

From a set of 16 stamps about Bahamas marine life (2012): the Bonefish.
Bonefishes, Albula vulpes, prefer reefs, shallows, estuaries, bays, grass flats, and other brackish areas. They are found worldwide in subtropical warm seas.
