Breathe in. Breathe out. Stand under a bright blue sky and watch all your troubles float out to sea and return as warm breezes and crashing waves. Where are you in this perfect moment, you wonder? Why, you’re standing on the shore of Nassau, the capital city of the Bahamas. When you feel the sun kissing your shoulders, you’ll know exactly what to do in Nassau, at least for a while. There’s nothing wrong with whiling away every hour counting the grains of sand on Sandyport Beach, but there’s culture afoot. So book beachside Nassau hotels and follow the joyful beats of Goombay music to your next adventure.
You’ll find many of the top Nassau attractions nestled up against the north coast of New Providence Island, along with a slew of luxurious resorts. West of the downtown area, Cable Beach is considered the place to stay, but it also happens to be a peaceful stretch of sand in its own right. For even more places to watch the sun fall and the tide rise, wander eastward to Junkadoo Beach and stop along the way for refreshing respite at the lush Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center.
As you ease into the busy downtown streets, channel your inner vagabond at the Pirates of Nassau Museum—the name says it all. Discover the dark and daring history of the high seas on the islands where the swashbuckling, intrigue, and derring-do all left their marks in the sand. Return your mind to more tranquil themes with a tour of The Cloisters on Paradise Island. Look very closely at each sculpture in the garden, as some of them bear kisses from past visitors.
As you plan your island itinerary, save time and money when you book Nassau vacations. With 400 airlines and 271,000 hotels worldwide, we like to make things simple, so you can travel and breathe easy with Travelocity.
