is blessed with a perfect climate – averaging 75 degrees year round – with pearly white beaches and waters that range from pale blue to deep sapphire. With a sheltered harbor and being located less than 100 miles off the coast of Florida, makes Nassau a very popular yachting destination. The capital city of the Bahamas, Nassau has been a bustling town on New Providence Island since the days of Blackbeard the pirate. Home to ancient forts, elegant architecture, local and international crafts, casinos, and water sports galore – Nassau is truly a world class playground. Fort Charlotte, built in the 18th century, guards the western entrance to Nassau Harbour and provides tours every half-hour daily. As you head east, past the bridge to Paradise Island, you will find the boating heart of the city with many marinas and charters for hire. The east end is also a large residential area showcasing the island’s colonial past with its architecture and homes with wide breezy verandas facing the sea. For a stunning panoramic view of Nassau, travel across the Cay to Coral Island and go ashore to climb its hundred foot tower, or descend its underwater observatory for a close encounter with stingrays and other sea creatures. Just off Nassau’s north coast is beautiful Paradise Island with its crystal clear blue water, dazzling white beaches, posh resorts and casinos. Many call it “Las Vegas by the Sea,” and a trip to Nassau would not be complete without also visiting this island gem.
