Our first arrival into Nassau in 2008, was celebrated with a belly flop contest. Such small guys involved only one was over 200 and he easily won.
The town of Nassau is what I consider typical Caribbean in that it has a small town center and is a bit run down. Nothing wrong with that but we did hear comments from people around us about it.
We kept our visit to Nassau short because we spent most of the time over on Paradise Island at Atlantis and also because it was a record heat wave while we were there. Was interesting to speak to the locals and hear their take on it being so hot that they couldn’t remember it being like this before.
Upon arrival we made our way into the terminal building and found the water taxi tickets. Once a group was ready it was time to run through the market and to the boat. No pier here, just a boat pulled up to the ledge with a box on end to stand on to get aboard.
Once we got back to Nassau via land taxi we walked the length of Bay Street. Lots of shops here and yes believe it or not, some actually have prices you can afford. Although not many of them.
At the end of Bay Street if the market. Lots and lots of tourist junk that we all seem to buy once in a while but I must say I did not this time. We nearly ran through it as it was just so hot. A quick visit into Senor Frogs and back to the boat we went.
We did hear from many of the crew that getting outside of Nassau and seeing the rest of the island a lot of it is beautiful. I believe this based on previous experience. So if you get the chance to visit Nassau try to get out and about further afield.
