New Providence District Things to Do

  • Atlantis at Paradise Island

    Nassau Things to Do

    We had understood from past reviews that we would be able to go into the lobby of the Atlantis resort, but were told by our tour guide that the pressure of cruise ship and other tourists in the place was so great that they had decided to close off most areas of the resort to outsiders. We were able to go in through the casino, and down the hallway...

    Paradise Island Things to Do

    Atlantis is one of the most impressive resorts in the world. It was modeled after the famous lost city of Atlantis, and is a vacationer's paradise. Complete with casino, beach, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and more, just walking through the resort is worth a visit in itself. The resort took only 11 months to build using thousands of...

  • Straw Market

    3 out of 5 stars

    Nassau Things to Do

    As a Kansan I can tell you that if you have a brainless scarecrow friend, this is the the place to shop. The straw quality is excellent. Avoid witches and fire and you will have a most enjoyable time

  • Pirate Museum

    Nassau Things to Do

    We have been to Nassau and Paradise Island several times on cruises as well as staying there. However, we had never been to the Pirate Museum. The museum is a short walk from the pier in downtown Nassau. The admission price is $12 per person. The museum has a replica of a pirate ship, several stories about the various pirates in the area, and a...

  • Blue Lagoon Island

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Nassau Things to Do

    Tons of fun. PJ ("our" sealion) hugged, kissed us; shook "hands", blew bubbles, stuck out her tongue. We got to "pet" her. Great experience. The "Touch Tank" is cool...conches, etc to touch. The lagoon/beach is pretty. Wanted to swim with dolphins, but our cruise did not give us enough time to do both.

  • Paradise Island

    Nassau Things to Do

    If you're headed to the Atlantis Hotel Resort for the Casino, to eat at Murray's Delicatessen or Jimmie's Soda Fountain, and arrive there by water taxi, you will have to walk past the Marina at the Atlantis Resort. If you love the ocean and boating you will be seriously jealous of the yachts here. These yachts obviously are owned by the fabulously...

  • Queen's Staircase

    Nassau Things to Do

    The Queen's staircase is named after Queen Victoria who is revered in the Bahamas. The canyon there was created as stone was quarried for things like the fort that was built up the hill from it. The staircase was hand carved by the slaves that quarried the stone to get it up the hill to the fort as it was constructed. The stairs are now faced with...

  • Ardastra Gardens

    Nassau Things to Do

    We had a wonderful time at Ardastra during our shore excursion! The Gardens are lovely, but the highlights for us were being able to hand-feed the lorikeets, and being able to interact with the flamingos! There are flamingo shows several times a day, where you can watch the flamingos follow a "drill sergeant" orders. Then, one person from each...

  • Parliament Square

    Nassau Things to Do

    If you take a tour taxi from the cruise ship docks, you will likely go through or by Parliament Square. The buildings in Parliament Square were constructed in 1815 by the Loyalists and are excellent examples of the colonial architecture of old Nassau. This is where most of the government buildings can be found. They are pink. The building to the...

  • Rawson Square

    Nassau Things to Do

    The lure of the Bahamas natural attractions & duty-free shopping is so great in Nassau that historically important figures & places in the Bahamas past are often overlooked. Only a couple of blocks from the cruise ship piers you will find at least 2 statues of persons important in the history of the Bahamas. The first square you will come to is...

    Around the corner and just up from the Straw market is Government House .We had a look just from across the street at beautiful pink and white Government House with elegant and steep steps leading up to it.

  • Hog Island Lighthouse

    Nassau Things to Do

    Hog Island Lighthouse is the first landmark you see as you enter the port besides the Atlantis towers. The lighthouse itself fits in with the simply beauty of the island. It is more of a representation of the people and the everyday life than the larger than life Atlantis resort.

  • Shopping

    Nassau Things to Do

    The new Marina Village at Atlantis is finally open. This is part of the hotel complex and is a wonderful place to shop or eat. There's a great ice-cream shop that offers more flavors than I can count. You can sit and hear live music while having a tropical drink or go to one of the many restaurants. This is a fun place to go at night and a great...
