The Basics

Downtown Nassau is a colorful mix of historic architecture and tropical gardens. Tour the city by horse-drawn carriage, catch a boat to Paradise Island, or opt for a guided excursion which showcases Nassau’s colonial highlights and typically includes stops at Ardastra Gardens, the Queen's Staircase, and Fort Charlotte.

However, aquatic adventures remain the most popular shore activity in Nassau. Snorkel or scuba dive to the surrounding coral reefs, head out in search of the island's resident dolphins, or leave on shore excursions to the beach—popular destinations include Blue Lagoon Island, Cable Beach, Junkanoo Beach, and Rose Island.
