The capital city of the Bahamas, Nassau is a convenient and affordable option for American travelers, located on the 21-mile stretch of New Providence Island.
Shops, pubs, and cafes line the streets, and white sand beaches provide plenty of sun and waves. In Nassau, you’ll find everything from luxurious spas to endless nightlife to family waterparks.
A few miles west of Nassau, Cable Beach is home to the Vegas-style Crystal Palace Casino, as well as several nightclubs and the Cable Beach golf course. This four-mile stretch of off-white sand is not only the longest on the island, but it also offers the ultimate beach experience wrapped up in a pretty little package. There are many hotels and resorts that dot the crystal blue coastline; each one offering a wide range of amenities. Beachfront restaurants feature many island-style dishes that will leave you wanting more. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride around downtown Nassau and immerse yourself in the ever-present Colonial charm and history of the island. The pastel-colored architecture and 16th-century forts will delight you.
Paradise Island is 685 acres of pure bliss connected to Nassau by two 600-foot bridges. The island was developed almost exclusively to accommodate visitors, with resorts, hotels, restaurants, shops, a golf course, an aquarium, and a casino rounding out the amenities. Seafood lovers will be in paradise – try fresh conch, which is one of the most popular foods in the Bahamas. By far, sparkling turquoise waters, and white sandy beaches stretching for miles have always been one of the most alluring features of The Bahamas. The ocean ranges from absolutely clear and colorless turquoise to all imaginable shades of blues. There is a wide range of activities and adventures available.
