We didn't get a chance to get into Nassau during our trip. Our driver to the airport (who picked us up at the airport) said it wouldn't be a problem to stop by. Small shop where you can see into the kitchen. The owner offered up a bunch of samples of rum cake that were delicious! We ended up getting... More

Souvenires, gems and famous label shops make this place attractive. The architecture of the buildings is also interesting and unique. The fraffic warden stands on a cabin on the crossroads, just like in the old days.

We were disappointed, and that's being generous. We got off the cruise ship and were bombarded with street vendors. We walked around downtown for a while, bought a color-changing t-shirt to take back home to our nephew. We attempted to walk to some sights but it didn't seem safe at all. After talking to other families on our cruise, even... More

I see the negative reviews and perhaps the problem is. ..no one ventures away from the tourist areas. We rented a car and drove out to Cable Beach. No one was there. White sand, turquoise blue water. For lunch, we drove over to Arawak Cay and had cracked conch at Oh Andros. After lunch we toured both forts, Queens Staircase,... More

We visited Nassau as a family on a cruise trip. The Bay Street is busy with tourists, great for shopping. Local artists. Safe. Fun place to take photos, houses painted in the colors of the Bahamas, hidden photo gems in the little alleys.

Bay Street had a great variety of shops and a bit cheaper than Paradise Island. Straw Market was a bit overrated, there is a smaller less hectic version on Paradise Island called the Craft Cemter. If on Paradise Island and tired of paying $200+ for every meal for a family of 4 try Anthony's, extremely reasonable relative to everything else... More

Lots and lots of sopping here...if there are 3 or more cruises ships docked you will bot be able to negotiate on prices...which happened to us when we were there. Found some good stuff to take back home as gifts.

If you want to shop this is the place for you. All different kinds of shops. There are also restaurants and bars. It's also a great place to watch people.

My Mom and I took a 3 night night 2 day cruise to New Providence Island in March 1988. 2 girlfriends I met on the cruise and I went to Bay Street, Nassau for shopping. At the time, you could buy cigarettes, perfume and alcohol cheaper than in the USA. There were quite a few Upscale clothing retailers. You could... More
