    Default Legal Drinking Age In The Bahamas?

    I will be traveling to Nassau, Bahamas next summer and a few of the people traveling with us will only be 18 years old. Does anyone know what the legal drinking age for alcohol is in Nassau? One person we came in contact with [who owns a nightclub down there] said that he has 16 and 17 year olds coming in and drinking all the time; this seems a little strange to me. Once again, if you know the legal drinking age, could you please let me know? Thank you.

    I am 16, and i just got back from nassau. I stayed at the breezes hotel and i was served drinks at the main bar all night. it was an adult resort so i guess it was not enforced. they did have age wrist bands but no one cared. no one gives a crap if you drink

    The age is 18 yrs. it is for the Majority of time enforced. It does vary from establishment to establishment however (as whomever is doing the serving and how they are feeling at that time)

    I live In Nassau and as far as I know the Major Hotels/Resorts do enforce.

    Well, the U.S. Dept. of State says 18 be the legal age. And it also goes on to say that enforcement is weak and underage drinking is prevalent. Further, many of the arrests, accidents and violent crimes suffered by U.S. citizens in the Bahamas involve alcohol.

    when you are abroad, you are subject to the laws of that country. If you are under the age of 18 in the Bahamas and consuming alcohol, you are breaking the law, and could possibly spend a longer amount of time there.
