Only 50 miles off the coast of Florida, the Bahamas is the epitome of a tropical vacation. It has a year-round temperature of about 70-90 degrees Fahrenheit. There are rainstorms and hurricanes every now and then, but they rarely last long. The official language of the country is English, so no need to pay a translator! There are 700 islands in the Bahamas, so make sure you leave yourself time to explore!
While most Bahamians have very laid back attitudes, the same attitude is not applied towards homosexuality. While there are many gay visitors that make trips to the Bahamas, the country has strict anti-gay laws. Though both male and female same-sex sexual activity is legal, same-sex couples do not receive the same amount of protection under the law as heterosexual couples do. Most Bahamanians are conservative Christians, which leads to more discrimination or harrassment towards members of the LGBT community. It is important to make sure beforehand that the accommodation or businesses you plan on visiting while on the island are not disciminatory. Overall it is not dangerous for gay couples who do not show a lot of PDA.
