The Bahamas is a country in the Caribbean and consists of over 700 islands.

Impressions from my Vlog

Nassau

The capital Nassau is also an island. The city center was made up of colorful houses and a museum about slaves was intresting. During the day several cruise liners docked and the city was full, in the evening the city felt empty again.

Paradise Island

Close to Downtown Nassau is Paradise Island. The island enchanted me with its white sandy beach and clear water for snorkeling.

Travel Tips

Planning

  • I stayed in Nassau for 3 nights and flew in from Fort Lauderdale (Miami, USA) and then on to Kingston in Jamaica.
  • I used for my planning and can recommend the Lonely Planet for the Caribbean Islands.

Transport

  • There are affordable flights from Miami and many other major cities in the US to Nassau.
  • From the airport to the accommodation you can either take a taxi (30 USD to 40 USD) or the bus (3 USD). I took the bus and had to leave the airport for the road to Nassau city center.
  • There are buses that do not have a fixed timetable. They are mainly taken by the locals to get to work in the morning and back home in the evening.

Accommodation

  • I stayed at a hostel in the center of Nassau. It was connected by bus from the airport, and the city center and Paradise Island were within walking distance.

Food & Drinks

  • The supermarkets in the Bahamas are very expensive, for a sunscreen I paid 13 USD and a bar of chocolate costs 3 USD. Only bananas and toast were cheap. To save money, it is worthwhile to buy food in advance and take it with you on the pane.
  • The restaurant will charge you in addition a service fee of 15 %.

Do you have questions to plan your trip or suggestions? I'm looking forward to your commentary.
