Why We Love It

Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, blends British, Spanish and West African cultures together to create its own spirit. Once serving as a shelter for freed slaves, pirates and rum smugglers, it is now known for its turquoise waters, sandy beaches, warm weather, and annual Junkanoo Parade. Its off-shore coral reefs serve as popular attractions for divers and snorkelers alike.
