Batelco is the national telephone company of the Bahamas, and it maintains excellent phone service for all but the most isolated islands. Public phones are available in all tourist areas, though some Out Islands phones may be out of service for long periods. Long-distance calls may be made from public phones by using phone cards or through the local long-distance operator.

Postal service to and from the Bahamas is fairly reliable. Postcards from the islands to North America, Europe and South America require a 50-cent stamp, while airmail letters cost 65 cents per half-ounce.

Modem connections and email are a still-developing feature of most Bahamian telephone networks, so it's worth checking availability in advance with your hotel or resort.

The country code for the Bahamas is 242.
