Bahamian stamps to celebrate Christmas season

Year-round sunshine and warm weather makes the Bahamas a favourite destination for travellers in need of rest, relaxation, and a fun-filled getaway. The peak holiday season starts from mid-December. This year's Christmas stamps are a celebration for all who will be enjoying the islands this Christmas.

The stamps have been designed in a classic Art Deco poster style and depict four of the main elements of tourism.

The 15c and 65c stamps feature a cruise ship and a plane.

The 50c stamp depicts the Atlantis Hotel, Paradise Island, situated on a two-mile long, pristine white sand beach representing the luxury accommodation and resorts that Bahamas can offer to visitors.

The 70c value features Fort Fincastle and the Water Tower which commands spectacular views across the island.
