Want a vacay filled with sun, fun and tons of Bahamian culture? Then pack your bags and meet us in Nassau! This amazing destination has everything you could ever want in a tropical getaway: fantastic food, pristine beaches, rich history and so much more.

“But there are so many options!” You say to yourself as you start crafting your ultimate bucket list. “I may not be able to see it all.”

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Okay, we have to talk about food first. Why? Well, food is awesome and Nassau has some pretty cool grub that you can’t always get back home. We love a plate full of authentic eats, so the idea of a guided food tour is right up our alley. Get a taste of the area as you feast on all types of conch – cracked, fritters, salad – you name it. If you come across these yummy delights on your tour, don’t pass them up! You may also find boiled or stew fish, peas and rice, and some thirst-quenching drinks along the way.

If you want to mosey on over and grab something yummy on your own, check out The Fish Fry at Arawak Cay. Located on West Bay Street, this hotspot is home to some seriously good restaurants offering traditional Bahamian dishes. The seafood is outstanding. The drinks are outta this world. The ambiance? Incredible. Trust us, you’ll want to add this one to that bucket list we mentioned earlier.

Hit Up the Beach

We always have the beach on our radar when we’re on vacation. If you just can’t get enough salt air and island vibes, then you may want to visit several of them during your stay. One of the best spots for soaking up some serious sun is Cable Beach. Whether you’re sprawling out onto the sand, going for a swim in stunning blue waters or even playing a game of golf, you can’t go wrong with this slice of paradise. We suggest a stay Grand Hyatt Baha Mar for the ultimate Cable Beach experience.

Turn the excitement up a notch and head over to Junkanoo Beach, where you can enjoy watersports like snorkeling and kayaking, beach volleyball, restaurants, clubs and more. This beach is perfect for activities and those who don’t necessarily want to lounge in the sand all day. So, if you’re traveling with someone who just can’t sit still, Junkanoo is a great spot!

Knowledge is power! And hey, learning more about the destination you’re vacationing in makes it even more special. If you love history, then you’re really going to enjoy what Nassau has to offer (it was an actual hub for Caribbean pirates). Be sure to visit The Queen’s Staircase, Parliament Square, Heritage Museum, and Clifton Heritage National Park during your stay. You may want to be on the lookout for some buried treasure along the way, too.

We weren’t kidding when we said you’ll see it all in Nassau. If you want to get in on even MORE excitement, start planning your Nassau vacation today!
