What was once a haven for the pirates of the Caribbean is now a favourite tropical vacation destination boasting beautiful beaches, picturesque landscapes and a rich heritage and culture. The Bahamian capital of Nassau has something to offer every traveller, with popular resorts located along the coast and a range of exciting excursions. Vacationers can explore the island’s picturesque landscapes that have served as the backdrop for not one, but four James Bond movies – whether you want to cruise along the coast on a catamaran excursion or explore the island on a Segway tour. Kids and kids at heart will have a blast at Aquaventure, a 141-acre water park that’s home to daring water slides, sprawling pools and winding lazy rivers. To learn more about the island’s rich history, visit some of Nassau’s most important historical landscapes like Fort Charlotte and Fort Fincastle – both of which were built in the 18th century to protect the capital against pirate attacks.
