Nassau Travel Guide
But away from the city the rest of the island is a delight for cyclists, hikers
and naturalists alike and ten minutes from downtown you could be a million miles
away. And if you really want to get away from things try Exuma Cays Land and
Sea Park on Exuma Islands. This park, inaugurated in 1958, is the first of its
kind anywhere on the planet. It covers 176 square miles of outstanding anchorages
and a stunning marine environment. It was the Caribbean's first marine fishery
reserve. Many a worldly yachtsperson will tell you that the Exumas are amongst
the world's most picturesque yachting grounds.
But for most visitors
to Nassau it is the sea the sand and the sunshine that attracts them.
The water ranges from pale aqua to deep sapphire, the spectrum changing almost
hourly as the relentless Bahamian sun sweeps across the island sky. Nassau,
the country's capital, is a bustling town on New Providence Island with shops,
nightclubs, glitzy casinos and opulent resort hotels. Visitors have the
option of either shopping all day or wandering past old colonial buildings that
are full of history. Visitors may spend their nights dining on elegant
French cuisine in a hotel restaurant visiting one of the island's amazing casinos.
No visit to Nassau
would be complete without a trip to amazing Paradise Island. This strip
of land right off of Nassau's north coast has amazing beaches and casinos.
It is truly a world class playground. These casinos and beaches are the
most popular destination for most tourists, and the recently completed Atlantis
casino and super-resort has attracted even more visitors. The water is
clear blue, and the beaches are perfectly white on Paradise Island. Inside
the casinos there's every type of game to choose from, as well as dozens of
shows and attractions. Las Vegas by the sea!
