There's a ferry to Sandy Point that runs a couple times a week.

you again ? Perfect.,, In your opinion, Nassau or condo rental in Treasure Cay. Rates are about the same for us. Where would you go ? Who has the best beaches, and what do you personally think would be the better place to spend a week. we are both 37. This trip is being planned for a 1 year anniversary in April 06'

Very different places.

Nassau is a city with lots of things to do, hustle and bustle of the cruise ships, casinos and high end restaurants. Treasure Cay has pristine beaches and is quiet, laid back and very low keyed.

MY choice would be Treasure Cay, especially for an anniversary with my honey.

If you're inclined to see Nassau, stay a day before you head to Paradise.

That was my thought, also. Thanks, again. I'm sure we will be in contact again prior to April.

Keep in mind that Sandy Point is a long long way from Treasure Cay. It will be a very expensive cab ride from Sandy Point to Treasure.

Thank you. I'm not aware of most of this which is why I am on Tripadvisor. New to Bahamas this year. Been to 15+ countries, but not the Bahamas -- YET !! May now look at Eleuthera.

Thanks, again

you can simply fly to marsh harbor on American Eagle or from fort lauderdale. Marsh Harbor is on Abaco. The ferry from Nassau is about 12 hours.
