This archipelago of sandy isles and cays conjures up visions of tropical paradise for many people. The Bahamas were named by their first European visitor, Christopher Columbus. After observing the shallow sea around these islands, he said, “Baja mar” (low water or sea). And so the area became know as The Bahamas, or “The Islands of the Shallow Sea.” In the 17th century, many of the famed pirates of the Caribbean used the cays and inlets of the Bahamas to hide their ships and treasures.
