The Bahamas Elevation Map

The elevation map of the Bahamas is characterized by its low terrain. The Bahamas consist of hundreds of small islands that are flat and located barely above sea level.


The highest points in The Bahamas are the highest parts of several islands, reaching barely over 60 meters in elevation. The rest of the terrain is mostly just above sea level, and the islands are surrounded by reefs.

The Bahamas

The elevation map shows that the terrain on the larger islands is more varied than on the smaller ones, allowing for hilly landscapes that make for unique panoramas and sightseeing.

Overall, the low-lying nature of the Bahamas makes it a unique travel destination, with white sandy beaches cutting against the turquoise water and lush green vegetation on some islands.

Highest point

The highest point in The Bahamas is Mount Alvernia, located on Cat Island. It reaches 63 meters in height and serves as a popular observation point, as it provides a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape and the ocean.

Lowest point

The lowest point in The Bahamas is the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, which surrounds the islands on all sides and which reaches a depth of up to 8,648 meters.

Similar landscape

The Bahamas elevation map is somewhat similar to the elevation maps of the other Caribbean islands. Most Caribbean islands are made of limestone, volcanic rock, or coral, which results in low-lying terrain similar to The Bahamas.
