Nassau, Bahamas Cruise Port

Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, is the closest thing you’ll get to a big city in the Bahamas. Instead of skyscrapers there are pink government buildings, and instead of street lights there are officers directing traffic. Bay Street is the main shopping street and you’ll find shops selling fine jewels and diamonds there. There’s also the famous Straw Market where locals sell their crafts and goods, often times made out of straw. Nassau is a fun place with a variety of beaches and lots of restaurants. You may also want to take a water taxi over to Paradise Island for a look at the amazing Atlantis Resort, or you could learn more about the city at Fort Fincastle, which was built in 1793. Featured below are some of the best ways to spend your time in Nassau, Bahamas:
 

  • Climb the Queen’s Staircase. This limestone staircase was built to honor Queen Victoria’s reign and has 65 steps, one for each year of her rule.
     
  • Try conch. Conch fritters or a conch salad offer you a little taste of the Bahamas. You can try some great local cuisine at an area known as the Fish Fry, which has several restaurants.
     
  • Swim with the dolphins or snuggle with a sea lion. The Atlantis Resort has a full water park where you can snorkel, swim or just enjoy the beach.
     
  • Visit the Ardastra Gardens Zoo & Conservation Center where you’ll see 300 species, including beautiful pink flamingos and two jaguars.
     
  • Meet the locals and find authentic souvenirs as you wind your way through the Straw Market looking for hats, purses or other accessories made out of straw.
