NASSAU & PARADISE ISLAND
Visitors flock to the capital city of Nassau and neighboring Paradise Island for nightlife, restaurants, beaches and watersports. Atlantis has been the gleaming gem of the area for 35 years, delighting visitors with an unending list of diversions for all ages. Downtown Nassau offers a variety of options for the history buff and culinary adventurer. It’s also a great jumping off point for day trips to the Out Islands by boat. Cable Beach is perfect for families who would like the ease of stepping off the plane and onto the beach within a matter of minutes. The quieter side of Western New Providence offers fantastic upscale ethnic dining options, boutique hotels and less crowded beaches.
The historic downtown Nassau is a great starting point to getting the real feel for the island. Tour museums, old forts and a wide range of dining options. This is where the cruise ships dock and the vibe is more of a vacation, party scene. The Straw Market is a great spot to pick up souviners to take home. Potters Cay can find freshly made conch salad and a cold Kalik while listening to local bantar, domino slapping and occassional rake and scrape music sessions.
Head out west to Cable Beach and the less bustling areas of the island. The further you venture west, the more far removed from the bustling action of cruise ship docks and tourists. The less visited Love Beach is home to the newly re-opened Nirvana bar and restaurant. One of the only establishments right on the beach. You’ll feel like you’re in the out islands when visiting.
