On a trip to Nassau you can immerse yourself in a dynamic city atmosphere or spend your days lazing on the soft golden sands.
Step out of the city life by going to Cable Beach and Cabbage Beach. Get some historical perspective at Queen's Staircase and Christ Church Cathedral. There's much more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Straw Market, admire the masterpieces at The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, step into the grandiose world of Fort Fincastle, and stop by Diamonds International.

To find photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Nassau trip planner .

Traveling by ferry from Harbour Island to Nassau takes 3 hours. In May in Nassau, expect temperatures between 86°F during the day and 72°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
