Made up of many stunning islands in the North Atlantic Sea, The Bahamas is a world-class tourist destination. Known for its sublime beaches, gorgeous weather, delectable seafood and cocktails, luxury shopping and underwater adventures, visitors are never short of ways to unwind, explore and have fun. The main gateway for air travelers is via New Providence, the nation’s most-populated island and home to the capital city of Nassau. It’s also a major cruise ship destination. Whether travelers are just arriving in The Bahamas or whether they’re spending their entire vacation around Nassau, these are some of the best ways to fill vacation days with bliss.
Bask on Heavenly Beaches
Soak up the sun on the pristine white sands of Cable Beach and take a dip in the enticing blue waters to cool down in the tropical heat. Experience a little cinematic history at the striking Jaws Beach, located within Clifton Heritage National Park, and escape the crowds at the relatively peaceful Delaporte Beach. Snorkel from the shore at Cove Beach and check out Junkanoo Beach for chilled-out beach bars, laid-back seaside sports and a welcoming local vibe. There are plenty of local beaches to discover, too, such as Adelaide, Smugglers, Saunders, Montagu and Cabbage Beach.
Take Boat Trips and Explore the Underwater World
Join a snorkeling trip to explore the colorful delights around the tropical reefs or go on an island-hopping adventure to experience other parts of the country. The nearby Blue Lagoon Island, AKA Salt Cay, is a popular day-trip destination, home to palm-lined beaches and lush rainforest, and Rose Island offers lashings of exclusive luxury. Board a glass-bottomed boat in the harbor to admire the beauties of the sea without getting wet. Peer down to see an array of underwater creatures and flora while sailing above multi-colored sea gardens.
Indulge in Retail Therapy
Browse and buy along the vibrant Bay Street, home to a plethora of bargain duty-free goods. Shop for aromatic perfumes, elegant jewelry, cut-price electronics, designer accessories and more. Shopaholics can find almost anything they want here, from books and art to fashion and alcohol. Walk up the hill to the colonial beauty of Graycliff for exquisite locally made chocolates and cigars, and peruse the souvenirs and trinkets that line the stalls of the traditional Bay Street Straw Market.
