Holidays to Nassau
Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas is the heart of Bahamian history. Explore its narrow streets, the old British Forts, climb the Queen’s Staircase and stroll through sections of the town dating back to the days of slavery and beyond. You’ll find plenty to do in this little gem of a town; from marching with the Flamingos at Ardastra Gardens to looking for souvenirs in the colourful straw market. Learn about the dramatic and exciting world of the pirates that once frequented this town at the Pirates of Nassau museum. Or dine in the rich and historic atmosphere of the elegant Graycliff Mansion, built in 1740 by a famous pirate, the wine cellar here boasts some of the world’s rarest vintages.
After a day on Paradise Island or Cable Beach enjoy strolling around the designer boutiques, watching the Police Band accompany the Changing of the Guard ceremony ,or enjoy a leisurely horse-drawn carriage ride through the charming streets.
Holidays to Paradise Island
Paradise Island lies just north of Nassau, connected to the city by two bridges and packs a world of action, adventure and indulgence within its 1.1 square miles. Come to Paradise Island to relax on the famed white-sand beaches, take boats trips from the marina, enjoy a round of golf and visit perhaps the biggest hedonistic playground this side of Las Vegas at the delightfully O.T.T Atlantis Resort!
Holidays to Cable Beach
Only a five-minute taxi ride from historic Nassau are the dreamy white-sands of Cable Beach. This chic beach sits on an idyllic two-mile stretch of sand and offers endless activities such as parasailing, windsurfing and diving. There's plenty of dining options along the beach, we love the Junkanoo music, and a Bahamian favourite, the conch fritters served in Cafe Johnny Canoe!
