Paradise Island hotels and Resorts
All inclusive Paradise Island (Nassau) Bahamas vacation
Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas, on the northeastern edge of New Providence Island. Lynden Pindling International Airport, the major airport for the Bahamas, is located about 16 kilometres or 10 miles west of downtown Nassau, and has daily flights to major cities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean.
Nassau has an attractive harbour, a colourful blend of old world and colonial architecture and a busy port. The tropical climate and natural beauty of the Bahamas has made Nassau a popular tourist destination, with a reputation for relaxing days and an exciting nightlife.
Summertime temperatures rarely exceed 33 degrees Celsius (92 degrees Fahrenheit) and the winter months have daytime temperatures between 20 and 26 °C (68 and 80 °F), rarely falling below 10 °C or 50 °F.
Activities abound in this beach area, which is also referred to as “Long Wharf.” The Western Esplanade is located near downtown Nassau and is just a few minutes from the cruise ship dock. It has restroom facilities and is the site for the annual Spring Break activities. On any given Saturday, one can find Bahamians hosting “cook-outs” and other fundraising activities on the street level of the beach.
Nassau Landmarks and Attractions
Take a walk around Old Town, an interesting mixture of abandoned buildings and bright Caribbean structures. It doesn't take long to get away from the over-scrubbed tourist areas in the very center. Walk ten minutes uphill to the pink Parliament Building, which still has a statue of an enthroned Queen Victoria out front.
Ardastra Gardens & Conservation Center
More than 300 birds, mammals and reptiles from The Islands Of The Bahamas, the Caribbean, Latin America and around the world are on display among acres of lush tropical gardens.
National Art Gallery Of The Bahamas
Located at the historic Villa Doyle, a newly restored 19th century mansion, the museum houses the National Collection of Bahamian artworks including paintings, sculpture, works on paper, textiles, ceramics, photography and other mixed media works. The quality of art is rather uneven to say the least, but the renovated building — once the residence of the Chief Justice — is a sight in itself.
Pirates of Nassau
Pirates of Nassau is a world-class pirate attraction in the heart of downtown Nassau. Experience the true story of pirates in an amazing, historically accurate,interactive environment, which will entertain, excite and educate visitors of all ages. Recreations of a pirate town, a pirate ship and a pirate battle, with a few real artifacts mixed in. Cheesy, but fun.
