Pictures of the Bahamas from the air

In any flight to Miami returning from the eastern part of the Caribbean, it's inevitable that part of the trip will take you over the Bahamas. As the Bahamas consist of hundreds of small islands and reefs in addition to the better known populated ones (Nassau or New Providence, Grand Bahama, Eleuthera and others), the colors of the sea are spectacular.

Technically, the Bahamas are not Caribbean islands as they don't border on the Caribbean Sea but rather on the Atlantic Ocean and are farther north than Caribbean islands such as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The chain starts to the east of Florida (the closest island being Bimini) and extends on a southeastern angle until it comes close to the north coasts of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. At the southernmost part of the chain are the Turks and Caicos Islands.
