Best Things To Do in Nassau (New Providence)
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Bahamas team
What to do will likely be the first question you ask when you decide to visit the Islands of the Bahamas. The answer will be as complex as your own personality and personal interests. A Bahamas vacation can be perfectly enjoyable if you literally do nothing, except lounge on the beach and eat Bahamian food. So start narrowing down your choices by looking at the type of vacation you want, your budget and island of choice.
If you have an appreciation for nature, art and culture, and the aquatic underworld, the Bahamas has much to offer. Our natural wonders like the Blue Holes National Park in Andros or the flamingo sanctuaries in Inagua, are some of the most outstanding in the world. If you are looking for a quiet escape, there are day excursions that take you to private islands and activities that can be self-guided. Nassau and Paradise Island are the urban city centres of the Bahamas, where you will find bars and nightclubs filled with locals, along with cruise ship passengers and other visitors. However, both locations are diverse, because you can just as easily find things to do that feel like the Out Islands. The typical things to do include tours, nature excursions, boating and fishing trips, diving and snorkeling, island hopping to the Out Islands, spa treatments, galleries and museums, beaches and heritage sites.
