He landed in the Bahamas. The exact island that Columbus landed on is a matter of debate, most agree that it could have been one of:

  • San Salvador (called Guanahani by the native inhabitants)
  • Samana Cay
  • Plana Cay

Columbus wasn't the explorer who "found" America. The Native Americans were. They used a land bridge made from glaciers. Columbus was thinking he was in India (the spice land).
