Public safety

The Bahamas have a bad name when it comes to the crime rate, but it is mainly inside story, gang-related, not aimed at tourists. Just be vigilant. No flashy watches or jewelry when strolling downtown or on the beach. Do not carry too much cash. Don't leave valuables in hotel rooms (apart from a safe) or on the beach. Avoid being harassed by guys on the street selling substances. Women: clothes-wise, nothing so revealing. That speaks for itself. Don't wander around on your own or make yourself an easy target.  Bahamians are passive, friendly people on the whole, but some of their young men are hot-blooded, got in evil ways.
