It was so nice to arrive and know that everything was taken care of.”

Have A Bahamian Experience

One of the best things about traveling is experiencing local culture and The Bahamas is no exception. With a rich history and a cultural spirit unlike anywhere else in the Caribbean, Nassau Paradise Island is a perfect place to explore—especially with a tour. Charlotte took part in the Tru Bahamian Food Tour, saying it was a  “great way to learn about the history of The Bahamas and sample some delicious foods we might not otherwise get the chance to try. (It’s) perfect for adults and kids would probably enjoy it too.”

For even more flavors of the island, Andrea says to “head downtown to Bay Street for amazing authentic Bahamian food.” While Nadia loves the Fish Fry at Arawak Cay, where “the servers were so friendly and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced for big portions.”

Ask The Locals

People in The Bahamas are known for their friendly disposition and love interacting with travelers, so a great way to discover Nassau Paradise Island is to ask locals for suggestions. When Tricia visited the island, she really appreciated that the “staff made recommendations and helped me navigate my stay.” Gabrielle and her husband also loved chatting with friendly locals, having “many great conversations from those experiences.”

Document Your Trip

In Nassau Paradise Island, it’s not hard to make memories to last a lifetime. But a tip one guest Kerrigan has for others: “Clear your phone before you go. We took so many pictures we ran out of storage!” After all, you don’t want to miss out on a chance to preserve your vacation memories.

With all of these tips and tricks, you’re more than ready to plan your vacation to paradise. Which brings us to the last, and arguably most important, piece of advice, which comes from a visitor named Angela. “If you have been thinking about (traveling to The Bahamas) – GO!”
