NASSAU, BAHAMAS

 

Nassau is both the capital and largest city of the Bahamas.  It is located on New Providence Island.  Nassau is in close proximity to the United States, only 181 miles east-southeast of Miami, Florida. The world-famous Atlantis resort is on nearby Paradise Island.  

The Bahamas have 100,000 square miles of the clearest, most stunning blue waters on Earth. The waters contain all imaginable shades of blues: turquoise, ultramarine, azure, cerulean, royal blue, sea green and even rich purples. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield described his favorite view from the International Space Station as, “The most beautiful to me are The Bahamas, the vast glowing reefs of every shade of blue that exists.”  The waters contain all imaginable shades of blues: turquoise, ultramarine, azure, cerulean, royal blue, sea green and even rich purples. You need to see it to believe it!

The port city of Nassau is a unique blend of modern resorts and British colonial architecture with numerous historical sites and amazing beaches.  Water temperatures average about 80°F year round so it’s no wonder visitors from all over the world fall in love with the warm pristine waters and powder white beaches. Some of the most popular beaches are Junkanoo Beach, Cabbage Beach, and Cable Beach. In close proximity to the cruise port are Saunders Beach, Love Beach, and Jaws Beach.
