3 Things That Makes Nassau Unique

1. A Blend of Old and New

This 20-square block area is filled with colonial architecture, luxury shopping, stunning monuments, and more. The best way to discover the island’s rich history and culture is on a guided tour. You can explore local forts or a general walking tour of Nassau.

Found in the middle of the high-end shops on Bay Street sits the famous Straw Market. You’ll find homemade crafts, souvenirs, and gifts. Take in the hand-woven straw hats, bags, mats, dolls, wood carvings, and conch shell jewelry made by local artisans. This market, which is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., represents an industry that has been growing since the early 1940s.
3. A History Steeped in Piracy
From about the late 1600s to the early 1700s, piracy experienced its Golden Age, and Nassau was at the heart of it. During this time, the population of pirates in Nassau outgrew the original law-abiding citizens. Feel like you took a step back in time to this age of pirates by visiting the Pirates of Nassau museum. Board Blackbeard’s Revenge, a replica 18th-century pirate ship that brings piracy to life complete with cannon blasts, dancing pirates, the Captain’s Lounge, and historical tales.
