Nassau, the capital of New Providence, is the compulsory stopover point for most tourists visiting the Bahamas islands. An active and flourishing city, here you will find casinos, banks and shops, as well as a port full of cruise ships that set down hoards of tourists daily. The city is not very big, and after having done some shopping on Bay Street or at the Straw Market, you can drive along its streets bordered by colonial villas in a horse-drawn carriage. Go see the changing of the guard in front of the governmental palace (Duke Street), which takes place every Saturday morning at 10:00am. Visit the exhibition on the Junkanoo on the Prince George jetty (65p from 9:00am to 5:30pm). Explore Fort Fincastle. Built in 1789, its tower rises nearly 70m above sea level and offers the highest vantage point of the whole island.Even though it only covers 144 miČ, the island is home to 2/3 of the population which is mostly concentrated around Nassau. A friendly-sized city, the capital still has many colonial houses and relics telling of its British past. It also offers a strange mix of American-style mercantilism, an English atmosphere, and a tropical nonchalance. A quick visit of the city, including the main street, Bay Street, that is plagued by passengers on cruise ships who regularly come here to visit for the day, is all you'll need. The island of New Providence is not only unavoidable from a practical point of view (its international airport serves as a hub for the company Bahamasair) but also because it is home to some beautiful beaches and attractions that are worth seeing, including Cable Beach (the local 'Riviera'), a long beach lined with hotels. To the east of the capital, linked by a bridge that you have to pay to cross, lies the small Paradise Island, where one of the most spectacular hotels in the world, the Atlantis, is located. This impressive construction with 2,300 guest rooms has many aquatic attractions (parks, slides, marinas) but most importantly the largest tropical aquarium in the world that you can visit without having to be a guest at the hotel.
