Nassau, Bahamas, is mostly a hub for most tourists that aim to visit the small, pristine islands in the Bahamas. However, that does not mean that the capital of the Bahamas is not worth a visit. Visiting Nassau gives you the opportunity to combine a cultural trip with spending time on the beach. When you think about beaches in the Bahamas, Nassau may not be the first destination that you think of, but the island on which Nassau is located has some beaches that you would expect to see on a postcard. The island is only eighteen miles wide, so it is easy to visit the different beaches from Nassau.

The Old Town in Nassau is the most attractive part of the city, with its colourful and bright buildings. Back in the days, Nassau was far from a touristic hotspot, but rather a pirate’s den. At the Pirate Museum, you can learn more about the role of pirates in the Bahamas interactively.

The islands in the Caribbean are not among the most popular backpacker trails. Generally, getting around is expensive and so are the cost of living as a traveler.

The price for a bed in a dorm varies a lot among the different hostels in Nassau, Bahamas, but so does the quality of the hostels. Even though a Nassau, Bahamas hostel’s address suggests that it is in Nassau, some are actually outside the city. There is a decent bus system on the island that may bring you quickly to the centre, but it is advised to check if there is a bus stop close to the Nassau, Bahamas hostel in which you aim to book.

Nassau is not that great. There is nothing but shopping.


Nassau isn't the best experience you'll have in your life, unless you are into tax-free shopping. Right when you enter the city, people are trying to sell you things. If you are a woman or girl, be prepared to be pressured to have your hair braided. Also, most of the beaches are not free. You have to pay to use them.
