Nassau, once popular with pirates due to its strategic location, still contains 70% of the Bahamian population. And though you need not fear Blackbeard and his men, the city is still a draw for a great many: with white sand beaches, bright blue skies, nightlife, fine dining and shopping, the city still acts as a central hub for Caribbean tourism. There is no public transport from the airport to central Nassau, but fear not. Tripology travel agents can get you car, bus, or van rentals to get to Nassau from Lynden Pindling International as well as group airfare to and from the states. And once you are in Nassau, there is much to be seen in the downtown area. The city is small enough to be toured on foot. Visit the Pirate museum, Fort Fincastle for some lovely views of the city below, and the Straw Market, where you can pick up all of your souvenirs (bartering is an accepted practice). When you get hungry, stop by Potter’s Cay for some fresh conch salad.
And of course, the beaches. No Bahamian trip would be complete without them. You can enjoy the many sands on New Providence Island, or take the quick trip out to the next island over, Paradise Island (home of the Atlantis).
