Where to Go
Clifton Heritage Park – Youcan snorkel at this beach park, which features giant underwater sculptures. Bring an underwater camera!
Montagu Beach & Fort – Takean afternoon to visit this public beach and surrounding area.You can visit historic Fort Montagu for $2 a person. Another highlight is the nearby fish market, which features fresh conch salads for sale (and lots of live conches!)
Bay Street – Explore the architecture in Nassau’s downtown by heading to Bay Street. There are local markets here, but we found them to be a bit too tourist-driven for our taste. The real highlight is the old buildings and charming neighbor-hood spots like Biggity.
Local Beaches – Cable Beachis recommended by locals and visitors alike, and Junkanoo Beach is fun and upbeat. We stumbled upon one of our favorite stretches of sand when we went looking for a local SIM card for our phones. It just goes to show that it’s worth exploring parts of the island that no one mentions! You never know what you’ll find.
