Climb the 66 steps connecting Fort Fincastle to Nassau city center. You will be affected by the effort the workers took to carve the Queen’s staircase 600 feet long of solid limestone.

Residents of the Bahamas have been selling local crafts to Nassau visitors for hundreds of years at a “straw market” for wandering woven containers using the skills they brought from their home countries in Africa. This tradition continues to this day in Nassau Straw Market, which was relocated from its historic site a few years ago after a fire broke out on a new building on Bay Street.

Today, the market offers so much more than just baskets for sale, where you will also find shirts, woodcuts, beaded necklaces and all kinds of souvenirs that bear the beautiful character of the island.

Rose Island

The Outer Bahamas Out Islands (also known as the Family Islands) is a very different experience from the civilian heart of Nassau, where instant serenity can be found on a speedboat fast trip to Rose Island. This close neighbor is nothing more than a beautiful sand bar, but there is enough for a perfect day trip. When you get there you get a lunch and a welcome drink, and diving equipment is provided. And if you fall in love with the island, ask about a one-night stay!

It may sound like a tourist trap from the outside, but the Nassau Pirate Museum does an excellent job telling the history of pirate history in the Caribbean. Nassau was a haven for notorious pirates in the early 18th century. Today, interactive exhibits at the museum take you to the year 1716, the height of the “Pirate Republic”.

Expect interactive exhibits, dioramas, original pirate shows, and of course the gift shop.
