The Bahamas: Your Ultimate Guide
Getting out there and exploring is a great way to escape from the hustle and bustle of life. You may have already ventured out to a few cool places, and now you’re looking for your next vacation destination. Well, look no further because we’ve found it. So, get your passport ready, pack your bags, and book your ticket because you’re going to the Bahamas!
Where To Stay
You’re headed to the Bahamas, but you don’t know where to stay the night. You’ll likely want something with an ocean view that doesn’t break the bank. Nassau is a popular city when it comes to vacationing, and you’ll definitely want to stay there. However, deciding on a hotel may be a little challenging. When it comes to finding a place to stay, you’ll want to try somewhere like the Reef at Atlantis. It is a massive resort with amazing reviews and an ocean view. Alternatively, if you want to stay somewhere where you can enjoy the nightlife, then you might want to check out Meliá Nassau Beach. It is an all-inclusive resort with a great nightlife to boot. You can always do an Airbnb if you’re looking for something more local and less touristy; for around $380 a night you can rent a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house that is right on the beach!
Where To Eat
Finding the right place to eat can be a challenge when you have so many options to choose from. With conch being a local favorite, you’ll want to find the right place in which to enjoy it. The Bahamian Cookin’ Restaurant and Bar serves up seafood near the beach; they have rave reviews and a reasonably priced menu. If you’re looking for something a little less surf and a little more turf, then give Black Angus Steakhouse a try. Located inside the Meliá, this high-end steak house is sure to please anyone that enjoys a good steak over seafood. If you’re looking for something a bit more local and laid back, then head over to Crabs and Ting. Located on the beach, you order at a hut/bar and dine outside. It’s a great place to stop for a snack or light meal while enjoying everything Nassau has to offer.
What To See
Now that you’ve gotten a place to sleep and you have a few options for places to eat, you might be ready to explore. So, if laying on the beach all day isn’t your thing then no problem, there’s a lot going on. Cultural explorers might want to check out the Rum, Reggae and Rhythms Tour. It’s a full-on mix of games, dancing, music and quality rum, making it a great way to experience the infamous Caribbean party atmosphere.
It costs around $55 per person, but if the reviews are anything to go buy it is money well spent. If you prefer spending more time around the ocean, then you should book a day trip to Rose Island. A totally secluded spot it offers visitors the ultimate escape with its luscious white sands and crystal clear waters. Prices will run around $142 per adult, but you’ll have a blast exploring the island. History buffs can take a Historical Sightseeing Tour. The tour lasts half a day, and you will learn about the history of Nassau and the Bahamas. The tour costs around $109 per person, but again, money well spent for a bit of local information.
Nassau is filled with tons of fun things to do; you can even book an ATV tour if you want, or visit many of its neighbouring islands. Either way, you’d practically have to live there to experience everything. Still, it’s worth taking at least a week to explore everything Nassau has to offer and try all the local cuisine, get a good feel for the culture, or work on your tan. Whatever you decide to do, you definitely won’t regret going.
