Bahamas Infrastructure

One if by Land, Two if By Sea
As befitting the world’s 10th leading financial center, the Bahamas has a solid infrastructure in place. The Bahamian government has spent tens of millions of dollars on infrastructure improvements since the early 1990s, resulting in modern telecommunications and transportation networks, as well as excellent medical facilities.

For high-tech businesses, the Bahamas offers redundant high-speed fiber optic links and broadband Internet (cable and DSL).

For the weary traveler, the Bahamas boasts 3,500 kilometers of well-developed roads and highways. The island also has 23 seaports, allowing for regular shipping connections to the Americas and Europe. Furthermore, the Bahamas has six major airports that are served by various international airlines, allowing direct flights to and from key destinations in Europe, North and South America and the Caribbean, with connections worldwide. Scheduled domestic flights by the national airline, Bahamas air, link the island chain, while also providing scheduled service to Florida. Charter services are available to all parts of the archipelago.

Finally, for the infirm, the Bahamas offers several hospitals and clinics. The Princess Margaret hospital on the island of New Providence is the largest one of these; it provides a good range of specialist facilities. Two smaller private hospitals, Doctors Hospital and Lyford Cay Hospital, also offer specialized medical treatment. Hospital facilities also exist in Freeport. Resident medical practitioners provide health care on the Family Islands.
