Our Exclusive Amenities for 2019

  • Complimentary Round-Trip Airport Transfer (to be arranged prior to arrival)

Fun Facts:

  • Nassau once served as the most popular pirate base in the world. While today’s tourists are a far cry from the marauders and thieves that once roamed the island, you can get an up-close look at the Golden Age of Piracy at The Pirates of Nassau Museum, which is housed in a full-size replica of the pirate ship Revenge.

  • The beautiful beaches and bright blue waters aren’t the only attractions Nassau has to offer. Nassau is home to Graycliff Wine Cellar, one of the largest wine cellars in the world. Graycliff is any wine connoisseur’s dream and has an inventory of over 250,000 bottles from over 5,000 vintners in 20 countries.

  • The word Bahamas is derived from a Spanish word ‘baja mar' which means ‘low tide' or ‘shallow water or sea'.

Destination Background:

The Bahamas, known officially as the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is comprised of 700 islands and over 2,000 rocks and cays, sprinkled over 100,000 square miles of ocean. The northernmost islands, Grand Bahama, New Providence and Paradise Island are home to many large-scale hotels and resorts. As the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau lies on the island of New Providence and is a popular tourist destination. The city is known for its beaches as well as its offshore coral reefs, which offer great opportunities for diving, snorkeling, sailing and jet skiing. Popular scuba diving and snorkeling sites include the enormous Andros Barrier Reef, Thunderball Grotto (used in James Bond films) and the black-coral gardens off Bimini.
