About Nassau

The capital of the 700-plus Bahamian islands is one of the most popular ports in the Caribbean.

It is situated on the 21-mile long New Providence, one of the 30 inhabited islands that were a British colony from 1718 to 1973, and it was this legacy – along with piracy – that shaped what is there today, with islanders driving on the left and familiar red letter boxes dotted around the streets.

Ships dock in the central Prince George Wharf, which is within easy walking distance of the bustling shops of Bay Street and the Straw Market, the swashbuckling Pirates of Nassau attraction and Parliament Square, where pastel pink buildings are fronted by a statue of Queen Victoria.
