When is the best time to fly to Nassau?

Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas, a coral-based archipelago in the Atlantic ocean east of Florida, where tourists from all over come to enjoy the sunny, warm climate, beautiful beaches and outdoor activities. With year-round warm temperatures, it’s always pleasant to visit here, but the busiest period is between December and February, when people are escaping from cold winter weather at home. Spring is the second busiest time, so book your flights and accommodation well in advance. As with all eastern Caribbean islands, the Bahamas are vulnerable to hurricanes, so you should know that they could strike anytime between June and November. If you plan your visit during this period, you should always book refundable tickets. You’ll find more affordable flights and rooms during the months of September – November, when fewer tourists visit.

How to get around in Nassau?

The best way to get around in Nassau is on foot, the downtown area is quite compact, and many of the attractions within walking distance of each other. If you’re up for a bit of a hike, you can even walk across the bridge to Paradise Island. Here are some other transport options for getting around in Nassau.

Things to do and places of interest in Nassau

Nassau is a tropical paradise, and with its own Paradise Island right alongside. Steeped in colonial charm, you can see the city’s old-world elegance in its majestic candy-colored buildings, historical forts and grand hotels. Here are a few sights and activities you should add to your itinerary.

  • One of the top attractions in the Bahamas is the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. Children of all ages will enjoy playing in the exhilarating water park, visiting the marine habitat to see native tropical sea life, and swimming with the dolphins.
  • Spend a day, or a few days, relaxing on Cable Beach. The soft white sand and clear turquoise waters invite you to kick back and let your worries fade away, as you laze until sunset.
  • Downtown Nassau and Bay Street is where you can find the best duty-free shopping, restaurants, and the straw market.
  • One mile west of the city you’ll find Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre, the only zoo in the Bahamas. It’s worth a visit just to see the 60 trained flamingoes perform their march, 3 times daily.
  • Check out the Pirates of Nassau Museum, where you can see a replica of an 18th-century pirate ship, and learn about notorious Caribbean pirates, including Blackbeard and Calico Jack, and the only known female pirates, Anne Bonny and Mary Read.
  • Take a day trip to Blue Lagoon Island, which is about 5 kilometers from Nassau. Here you can enjoy a range of watersports as well as encountering dolphins and sea lions at the island’s 3-acre marine mammal facility.

Tips and tricks for visiting Nassau

There is a Bahamian dollar, and Bahamian currency notes, but you needn’t bring any, US dollars are widely used.

The Aquaventure waterpark at Atlantis resort is pricy, at $120.00 USD for an adult day pass or $80.00 USD for a child under 12. Guests of the resort receive complimentary passes, and so do the guests of the nearby Comfort Inn, which is so affordable that, depending on the time of year, you may be able to get a room and waterpark admission for less than the cost of day passes to the park.
