City overview

Nassau, located on the island of New Providence, is the capital of the Bahamas and home to 70 percent of the islands’ population. Nassau is a lively port city that’s frequented by cruise lines throughout the year, and it’s often the first port of call for several cruises departing from Florida due to the island’s close proximity to the southeastern tip of the United States. 

If you’re looking for an island getaway but are stuck trying to decide where to go, look no further than Nassau: You don’t want to miss the festivities that take place in this Caribbean capital throughout the year. If you visit Nassau after the winter holidays, take part in Junkanoo – the rowdy parades filled with boisterous music and colourful costumes that hit the streets after the Christmas holidays. 

Whether you’re snagging a seat on a flight to Nassau or sailing in style on the high seas, a bustling Caribbean city awaits you complete with exceptional beaches, vibrant nightlife and plenty of galleries, museums and historical points of interest to keep you busy on and off the sand.

The easiest way to get to the centre after you land in Nassau is to make arrangements with your hotel. Many hotels have shuttles running to and from the airport, but you’ll have to set it up in advance.
