Bahamas Area Code Information

Bahamas Area Codes




The Bahamas is currently using one area code. The Bahamas does not utilize any area code overlays. Area code 242 was created from a split of area code 809.

Area code 809 originally covered most of the Caribbean when it was established in 1958. It was not until 1996 that an area code was established exclusively for The Bahamas. Since The Bahamas previously shared area code 809 with other Caribbean nations the establishment of area code 242 was technically a split of area code 809.
