Why Go

The capital, largest city, and commercial center of the Bahamas, Nassau has a population of 260,000 possessing nearly 80% of the population of the country. However, the city is still quite laid back, with the low-rise pastel pink government buildings and giant looming cruise ships that dock daily. Nassau has a busy downtown, hosts the colorful night-time street parade Junkanoo, and was once a "Privateers' Republic" under the leadership of Blackbeard. By far the most popular place to stay is the The Atlantis Paradise Island and to eat, try Twin Brothers Fish fry @ Arawak Cay or Senor Frogs. ... Read more

I was quite disappointed with the stop in Nassau on our cruise. There really isn't a lot there and what us there is so touristy. Considering the amount of money that flows through this place, it could be so much more.

Nassau was very beautiful. We witnessed history as there was a ceremony for new Prime Minister Minnis. The residents were welcoming and I enjoyed the shops! Beaching was fun and relaxing.

Beautifully city with a lot of thing to offer. First of all, the kindness of the population is extremely important there!

The best known island in the Bahamas is also the most developed, making it less ideal for nature lovers, but perfect for families looking for an all-inclusive experience and great for those who love big resorts with lots of activities.

This is s popular stop for cruise ships, but I wouldn't recommend getting off the boat. There's not a lot to see and locals are trying to sell you anything. There is nothing at the Atlantis resort that the public can use for free except the casino.

Nassau is a great place to visit in the Bahamas, complete with shopping, dining, great beaches, an amazing casino, and plenty of activities to enjoy in the water.

The beach is beautiful. The shops are so cool to look at and shop in. It rains a tad bit too much but I would definitely go back.

I always enjoy Nassau and always find something new and different to do there. Atlantis, Cable Beach, a ride on a bus to the local mall, shopping, snorkeling. Never a shortage of things to do here. Hire a boat driver for a few hours too.

Nassau is the capitol and the largest city in the Bahamas. Nassau, like the rest of the Bahamas is washed in tourism money, so you'll see plenty of expensive vacation homes and ritzy resorts. For these reasons, Nassau is not cheap. Regardless, it's the main arrival area to enter the Bahamas and is worth a visit.

This is a beautiful place! We did the under water submarine and it was a lot of fun. Go below to see marine life or above to see tons of sights including Oprah's vacation home!
