In Nassau, visitors will find a blend of old world and colonial charm. Famed for beaches and offshore coral reefs, it is a popular for both snorkelling and diving.
Like most ports in the Bahamas, Nassau is a yachting haven, especially due to its world-class marinas and international airport. A former British Colony, there are well-preserved Victorian homes and grand fortresses. But today’s Nassau is best known for excellent, high-end shopping and exclusive casinos. Here’s a great place for golfers, with some of the world’s finest found in the exclusive resorts. If golf isn’t your thing, try windsurfing, snorkelling or shark-diving here, since the surrounding reefs boast a good population of non-aggressive reef sharks who you can see up close underwater.
Neighbouring Paradise Island is a vibrant hub of upscale boutiques and resort hotels, bursting with life and cultural experiences. Historic sites at Fort Fincastle and the Queens Staircase are well worth a visit, or if water-based activities are more your thing then head to Cable Beach for first-rate diving and up-close dolphin encounters. Whether enjoying the vibrant beach life, exploring the exciting underwater world or having a flutter in the casinos, you are sure to enjoy your time in Nassau.
