New Providence and Nassau Bahamas!

Nassau is New Providence’s main city and the capital of the Bahamas. This 330 year-old city seems to portray an aura of history, colonial style and charm, however Nassau is the ‘hubbub’ of modern industry & communications, mainly in tourism and financial services. 

Nassau’s resort areas are Cable Beach to the West and Paradise Island to the north. In Nassau you can find colonial buildings, museums & art galleries, duty-free shopping, the largest straw market in the Caribbean, land and sea sports & cultural activities such as Junkanoo. The Junkanoo parade is held in the early morning hours of December 26th and New Year’s Day on the main downtown street – Bay Street – for the enjoyment of locals and tourists alike.

Paradise Island connected to Nassau by two bridges, well known for its unbelievable beaches and superb golf course. Also for everyone’s enjoyment is a world-class water park.

With its location about 160 miles from Miami, it is not surprising that New Providence is a popular destination for cruise ships. It also has both the good shopping and beautiful beaches needed to satisfy cruise ship passengers during a trip ashore. The best shopping on the island is in Nassau. There are stores like John Bull with cameras, electronics, and crystal and the Straw Market which offers just about anything that can possibly be made from straw. To experience truly Bahamian shopping, visit the market at Potter’s Cay where fresh produce, fish, and conch are sold daily.

New Providence is home to two large, attractive casinos. There is the Atlantis Casino on Paradise Island and the Crystal Palace Casino on Cable Beach. These two casinos dwarf the casinos found on most islands. Either casino could easily be mistaken for a major Las Vegas casino.
