Fort Charlotte:

Fort Charlotte commands a fine view of Nassau Harbor.

DOWNTOWN NASSAU:

Rawson Square

Rawsome Square Nassau BahamasAt the crossroads of downtown Nassau, lies Rawson Square. Cruise ship visitors coming from Prince George’s Wharf can be seen here night and day. Shops, restaurants and bars are numerous in the always bustling district. A statue of the first native Bahamian governor, Sir Milo Butler, presides over the square. Catch a taxi here to explore the island in a hurry or take the more charming horse-drawn surrey.

Cruise ship visitors arrive by the hundreds at this port, which has become the hub of Nassau. Up to 12 luxury cruise ships can be accommodated. Passengers usually flow out into Rawson Square which is filled with shops, salons and restaurants. The wharf was most recently renovated in 1996 so the facilities are quite modern. You can find brochures and maps of downtown Nassau from the Ministry of Tourism Information Center which is adjacent to the wharf.

CABLE BEACH

Things to do near the Coco Plum HotelCable Beach is New Providence’s premier resort area. It is to Nassau what South Beach is to Miami. The only problem is that the major hotels and resorts have gobbled up all the best bits. Of what’s left, though, you can pick your spot.

Take the time to drive West Bay Street from Nassau to and beyond the resorts and you’re sure to find something to suit you. Be careful, though. In some places the water can be quite rough, and the underlying rocks sharp.

Some of the public areas are very popular with the locals, especially at weekends, and can become a little crowded for my taste. Still, whatever you might need to enjoy a fine time of sand, sea and sun is available almost anywhere along the stretch: vendors offer a wide variety of snacks, ice cream, and all sorts neat, and sometimes dubious, trinkets and souvenirs; the ladies can even get their hair braided. Here and there you’ll find little fruit stands where the goodies are almost always fresh and cool. For lunch a variety of cafés and restaurants offer local cuisine, fresh seafood and, of course, as much local libation as you can handle.

All in all, Cable Beach comes highly recommended.

WESTERN ESPLANADE – JUNKANOO BEACH

Things to do in Nassau BahamasThe Western Esplanade is the local beach for Nassau itself. It stretches westward from the British Colonial Hotel and has fine soft sand, but it is often littered. It does have public rest rooms, changing facilities, and one or two snack bars close at hand, and there are a number of fast food restaurants within walking distance. It’s popularity lies in its closeness to the city and to the relatively inexpensive small hotels on West Bay Street. During Spring Break this beach becomes a seething mass of hot, excited, sweating bodies writhing to the rhythms of a hundred blaring radios. Still, if you’re staying close at hand, and don’t want to make the trip to either Cable Beach or Paradise Island, this might be just the place for you.

SAUNDERS BEACH

Things to do while staying at the Coco Plum Resort HotelTake West Bay Street to Fort Charlotte; the beach is just across the way. You might want to make a day of it: grab a box lunch from the hotel, visit the fort (an experience you don’t want to miss), then spend the afternoon on the sand. If you go n a weekend, don’t be surprised find it busy; this a favorite spot for the locals. Weekdays, though, you can be sure of a quiet afternoon. During the summer you might even get to see a cricket match being played on the field just below the fort.

JUNKANOO FESTIVAL

Junkanoo Band in Nassau BahamasJunkanoo is a national festival in The Bahamas, the only place where it holds such an honor. There is even a museum showcasing Junkanoo costumes, art and artifacts in downtown Nassau–a cultural highlight and must-see attraction for all visitors.

Christmas celebrations in The Bahamas would not be complete without Junkanoo bands “rushing” in the streets. Venture down to Bay Street in Nassau during the early morning hours of Boxing Day (the day after Christmas) and New Year’s Day and behold this cornucopia of color and sound. The darkness of the early morning adds to the bewitching atmosphere. Overhead streetlights highlight the hues of the costumes and banners intricately designed and patterned from minute strips of crepe paper of all colors glued to clothing, cardboard and wood.

Everyone is invited to join in the party and sing and dance along. It takes about two hours to view all entries, but don’t leave just yet. It’s even better the second time around!
