If you live in South Florida such as I do, then you inevitably wind up in the Bahamas at a certain stage. When it’s by amazing friends with a ship, or even on a cruise boat, a Floridian is not a real Floridian till they’ve been around the Bahamas. I have been fortunate enough to go to the Bahamas twice as I’ve moved into the States, both times on a cruise boat – the specific same one. The two times I went to the Majesty of the Seas using all the Royal Caribbean, where we seen Coca Cay (maybe not actually the Bahamas), and Nassau.
Now I am not one for cruise ships actually, but there’s something cool about getting pretty much everything covered up front, flavorful dishes, and time at another place with no mobile reception. Coca Cay is your Royal Caribbean’s private island, therefore I don’t actually watch it as THE BAHAMAS, however about the next day of this excursion that you visit Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas and house to Atlantis.
THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS
Check Out The Beachfront (Clearly)
Is not that the entire reason why you arrived at the Bahamas? Though lots of the islands of the Bahamas have brilliant, amazing beaches, Nassau has some fantastic ones too, even though they’re generally littered with tourists and cruise-goers. Some shores to check out include Cabbage Beach, Junkanoo (superb lively and near Downtown), Coral Harbors, and Cable
VISIT ATLANTIS AND PARADISE ISLAND
Atlantis and Paradise Island are world renowned. It’s an aqua adventure park and luxury resort website on the stunning Paradise Island. It comes with a casino, water slides and experiences, a gorgeous beach and golf program. Located on Paradise Island will also be the island houses of the wealthy and
TAKE A BOAT TOUR OF NASSAU OR SPEND THE DAY SAILING OR FISHING
EXPLORE FORT CHAROLOTTE
That is Nassau’s biggest fort. On the far western side of the haven, it provides some fantastic views of Nassau. It’s a moat, dungeons and underground tunnels. It was constructed in 1789, also honors the spouse of King George III. There are daily excursions and it’s a fairly neat trip back in
TAKE A WALKING TOUR OF NASSAU
WANDER THROUGH FORT FINCASTLE
Fort Fincastle is situated at the top of Bennet Hill. Constructed from limestone, it had been utilized to help protect the island from intrusion and enemy strikes. Although this fort itself is not as striking at Fort Charlotte, the Queen’s staircase lies adjoining to it, and these two websites together are well worth the trip. The opinions are great
WALK THE STEPS AT THE QUEEN’S
Located directly next to Fort Fincastle, the Queen’s staircase served as an immediate entry route in the Fort to the mountain in case of an assault against Britain’s enemies. The 102 ft, 66 measures stairs was carved from the limestone wall by over 600 slaves and required over 16 years to construct. It was called the Queen’s staircase in honour of Queen Victoria’s 65th year of reign. Interestingly enough, the background of colonialism of the nation is still current today, not just in it’s many temples around the island, but also in the words of these folks. Our manual (and cab driver) has been quite eager to talk about his remarks of colonialism and it has impacts on their
SPEND THE DAY AT BLUE LAGOON
I am not so certain how I feel about that… I’ve always desired to perform it, and then after viewing many documentaries, you sort of beginning to think just a little bit more about what you are doing in these scenarios. I am a significant one for character, and that is not 100% organic. I understand there are lots of arguments backwards and forward, but I really do think you want to seriously think about what you are doing. I didn’t spend my afternoon swimming with the dolphins. However, I’d like relaxing on the private island at a cove and napping in hammocks. It’s a pretty website, and it’s great to break free from the crowds.
