First things first, all the beaches are public. No matter where you are staying, travellers can use any beach freely and without restriction. Second, beaches in Nassau are not good for snorkeling. There is no reef and no draw for underwater creatures. Instead look into renting a jet ski. If you wait until late in the day, you will get a better deal on your rental than if you rent in the morning. Enjoy all the beaches and water fun.
2. Souvenirs From the Straw Market

Souvenirs are available on every corner and at every attraction, but there is one place where you can find everything you want. The Straw Market has rows and rows of souvenirs, handmade crafts, and locally made gifts. The vendors are friendly and want to sell you their items. If you want to buy something, bargain with them until you are happy with the price. If a vendor won’t bend the a price, another one will. Don’t miss this shopping experience.
3. Try the Local Fare
When in Nassau, you must try the local food. Caribbean food is a tasty treat that is hard to come by in other parts of the world. You can spend time going from restaurant to restaurant, but if you really want to experience local fare, take the Bites of Nassau tour. This three-hour tour takes guests to eight different stops where they will try the best food in Nassau. Additionally, many cultural and historic sites can be seen along the way.
4. Taste the Rum
When you visit Mexico, you will find the tequila flowing, in Italy it’s wine, and in Nassau it’s rum. The Caribbean is famous for its rum and pirate history, and if you want to have a taste of both you need to take the Rum Runners Tour. Walk the streets of Nassau, making stops to learn about Blackbeard and his historic rum-running days. Taste rum and other spirits all while getting a history lesson on Nassau.
5. Nassau is More than the Reef Atlantis
