Having been a premier tourist destination for almost a century we believe we have perfected the art of hospitality. Our islands benefit from some of the most extensive airlift available, with direct flights from several cities in Florida, New York City, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Charlotte, Dallas, Toronto, Canada, Kingston, Jamaica, and London, England.
Our Family Islands, Abaco, Grand Bahama and Eleuthera also benefit from direct flights from several American airports.
Most visitors entering The Bahamas are not required to hold Visas or obtain updated or special vaccinations. For more information on these particulars please visit the Ministry of Tourism’s official website, www.bahamas.com.
In addition to partaking in water activities with one of our members, no trip to The Bahamas is complete without:
- Trying a local beer, we recommend a Kalik or a Sands. If craft beer is more your taste, visit Pirate Republic downtown
- If mixed cocktails are your preference ask for a Bahama Mama, Goombay Smash or Sky Juice
- Tasting a conch delicacy, cracked conch and conch salad are our favourites! And that’s pronounced ‘Conk’! If you’re feeling really adventurous ask for a conch pistol.
- Drinking a refreshing Bahamas Goombay Punch, a local pineapple flavored soft drink
- Obtaining your very own piece of Bahamian straw work. If the lively Straw Market downtown is too busy for you, try the Craft Cottage on Village Road
Looking to learn more about the history and culture of The Bahamas? Visit Pompey Museum downtown, or the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, a short walk from town. Be sure to walk through West Hill Street and visit some of the shops and interactive activities on your way to the gallery.
Visiting the Clifton Heritage National Park by taxi is a great way to learn about our ancestry while seeing a bit more of Nassau by car. And finally, tap in our British roots while enjoying some Caribbean and British staples at the Cricket Club, located on the foot of Fort Charlotte, the largest fort in Nassau.
