    Beautiful beaches

    06/19/14
    I went to Nassau on a cruise ship so I didn't stay longer than a day, but I enjoyed the short time I spent there. The water is a unique blue, unlike any blue I had ever seen before, and will entrance you. I swam with dolphins, a remarkable experience that I recommend to anyone and everyone. Dolphins are such beautiful and kind creatures. It's a bit touristy, so I don't recommend going if you're interested in adventures that sway from the typical beach scene, but a great family destination - lots of fun stuff for the kids and very romantic for couples!

    I enjoyed the time I spent in Nassau. Unfortunately for half the time i was there it rained, which minimized what we could do. I liked that it was not overrun by tourists taking pictures and ruining the natural beauty of the land. There is good fishing, which i took part in during one of the sunny days. I think everyone caught at least one fish, which was prepared and even cooked that night to eat. The seafood there is amazing, so fresh and tasty. The beaches are clean and wonderful to just relax. If you are fortunate with the weather, i am sure you will enjoy yourself!

    Fun!!!!

    The beaches are beautiful, the Queens Staircase is so amazing so many people never even venture to the coolest place on the Island. Take the time to walk and see the beauty of the town the great houses and the straw market is a must it a fun venture for a few minutes but then head to the great baches and th beautiful warm water. Nassau often gets overlooked but it is great. Take the time do not miss the QUEENS STAIRCASE

    I thought the beaches here were the most beautiful that I had ever visited outside of the Cote d'Azure. Spectacular with clear water, great weather and beautiful scenery.

    I stayed at the Atlantis, and unless you love Walt Disney World (lots of people, lots of action), it's not a place to relax. The casino at night is a lot of fun at night, and I highly recommend the spa, Mandara. It's 3 floors of luxury.
    Tara
    Expensive at some of the resorts. Straw market can be intimidating, watch your bags.

    Very relaxing and romantic!

    You couldn't ask for a more romantic destination than Nassau! The breeze controls the heat while still allowing you to show a little skin, and the beaches are nothing short of divine. If you get the chance, check out Nassau -- you won't ever regret the decision.
