Walk the streets
Nassau itself is not the most exciting of towns, there being little in terms of 'stand outs', but a few hours strolling the streets reveals colonnial Caribbean at its simplest.
Walk and Shop
Great place to walk around, take pictures of some buildings of historical significance and of course shop. And make sure you bargain.
I know, I've mentioned it a few times already, but really it's the most memorable thing about Nassau for me.
There's a lot of money on the Bahamas (a lot of poverty too) - best indicated by this old colonnial ruin. Its been abandoned for years - and outside was the wreck of an E-Type jag!
Away from the pink of the colonnial public buildings are the homes of Bahamaians - a striking and colourful environment.
Orange Hill Beach
With the exception of locals walking their dogs, we had this beach to ourselves. 8 miles outside Nassau, 3 miles from Cable Beach. A few small hotels or bars along the road.
Junkanoo Beach Bahamas was a nice beach close by to where we could walk to from getting off the cruise ship.Related to:
