I found the whole downtown Nassau area a disappointment. Lots of junk shops. Walk a bit down bay street and there is nothing but empty stores. Gets sketchy fast.

Stay on the boat. Don't get off the boat. You will be followed by hustlers the minute you leave the gates. They wave driver licenses around and tell you they are associated with this-and-that store. The buildings are grimy. Taxi drivers will not ever leave...More

Stopped here at our final port of call in our NCL trip to the Bahamas and I’d have to say this port is very clean and well maintained. As we left off the boat at 8am there was workers repainting the concrete and planting new...More

we rented scooters here which was fun and then was sucked into the straw market. The vendors there were ruthless. It was much more civilized in the area stores which at least took credit cards and had the same merchandise. Very interesting place and good...More

My first time visiting here and unfortunately, I didn't have much time to explore more. Will certainly go back to do just that. But the wharf is easy to navigate around to catch the tour bus, taxi and go out to see Nassau City. You...More

It is a short taxi ride, maybe 15-20 minutes because of traffic. It really depends on how many cruise ships are in port that day. It is $4. for a taxi to Atlantis, or it was last fall.
