3 Ways to Say Hello to Animals in the Bahamas

When you think of Nassau, you probably think of pirates, sandy beaches, and crystal waters. While all this is true, there’s much more to discover when staying at Paradise Island Beach Club. From exploring historical landmarks to teeing off at a local golf course, there’s a little bit of everything. A fun addition to any itinerary is saying hello to the animals that call the Bahamas home. 

Whether looking to see animals in their natural habitat or seeing where they call home in Nassau, there are plenty of ways to enjoy an up-close encounter. To help you plan your adventures on the wild side, we’ve compiled a list of popular attractions and activities.

1. Go Swimming with Dolphins

Become instant friends with dolphins. Swimming with these adorable creatures is sure to be a highlight of your stay. There are a few different ways to hang out with them. One is by visiting Blue Lagoon Island, which is home to Dolphin Encounters. The other is heading to Atlantis to check out Dolphin Cay. Both offer a number of encounters, which means you can find the one that fits your group and itinerary best.

2. Visit Pig Beach

With a name like Pig Beach, it should be no surprise that this is the go-to spot to go swimming with pigs. Found on Big Major Cay next to Nassau, this is one of the most unique and memorable wildlife encounters. To reach the island, you can fly directly on Flamingo Air or travel on Bahamas Air before taking a boat with Coastline Adventures. Another option for visiting these fuzzy friends is Rose Island.

3. Explore the Zoo

If you’re looking to say hi to animals while staying dry, head to the Ardastra Gardens & Wildlife Conservation Centre. Home to over 135 animals, the zoo is also home to the famous marching flamingos. Open seven days a week except for certain holidays, this Nassau attraction features several daily events, including a flamingo show and Keeper Talk.
