Nassau in the Bahamas is a destination filled with unique history, natural beauty and culture. You'll find part Spanish, part West African and part British influences in the Bahamas, reflected in an eclectic range of events, holidays and traditions. The atmosphere turns electric during annual rum festivals and the Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival. Music is a part of daily life in the Bahamas - you'll hear traditional junkanoo, goombay and rake 'n' scrape. That's why they're called 'the Islands of Song'.
The Bahamas' pirating past is on show at the Pirates of Nassau museum downtown - it's a fun and interesting attraction for all the family. You'll also recognize the island's silver-screen legacy in movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Casino Royale. Uncover the landscape and wildlife of the island in beautiful parks, beaches and gardens - in particular, the famous marching flamingos at Ardastra Gardens. Explore an array of shops and markets, casinos, bars and clubs throughout vibrant Nassau.
The Bahamas is the perfect wedding and honeymoon destination, with oceanfront resorts and a lush climate. But if adventure’s more your thing, boating, scuba diving, fishing and sports will keep your adrenalin pumping. Great for the little ones too, the islands boast one of the largest water-themed attractions in the world at nearby Paradise Island.
