Nassau Vacations: Package Holidays Offering Upscale Sun and Fun for Everyone

General Information About Nassau Vacations

Nassau, the capital city and commercial centre of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is located on the island of New Providence, one of the few populated islands of the 700 islands that form the Bahamas in the northern Caribbean. Nassau vacations offer the opportunity for tourists to explore some of the rich colonial history of the Bahamas, as well as the intriguing pirate history of this former pirate stronghold. Nassau's pirate history lives on, in a sense, as bankers and financiers maintain Nassau as a shelter – modern day pirates, perhaps. British culture, history, and tradition is very apparent in Nassau, providing a certain comfort level and familiarity for British and North American tourists on all-inclusive Nassau vacations. Lynden Pindling International Airport, the main point of access to the Bahamas, is located just 16 km outside of Nassau, providing great access to all-inclusive Nassau vacations.

For tourists, all-inclusive Nassau vacations provide a great variety of points of interest, including historical, natural, and modern attractions. The Atlantis, a Las Vegas style hotel, is a wonderful modern attraction that most visitors to Nassau admire. Also, Nassau package holiday travellers should be sure to take a tour of Fort Charlotte, an outstanding historical fort designed to protect Nassau from invaders, built in 1789 by Lord Dunmore. A 40 minute boat ride to Blue Lagoon is also recommended for the pop culture buff, to see where the television show, Gilligan's Island was made. Not to be overshadowed, the Nassau vacation beaches, including Cable Beach, are outstanding.

All-inclusive Nassau vacation packages appeal to a variety of travellers, including singles, couples, and families. Those who enjoy casino action, golfing, a quick getaway, and top quality sun and sand will definitely appreciate an all-inclusive Nassau package holiday. Nassau vacation transportation options include taxis, bus, scooters, and horse and buggy – it is easy to get around. In the British tradition, driving is on the left side of roadways, and city congestion may inspire Nassau vacation tourists to consider the option of exploring on foot. For those interested in visiting Paradise Island while on a Nassau vacation, or those staying at one of the Paradise Island resorts, boat transportation is available to get there with ease. As well as Paradise Island, all-inclusive Nassau packages are generally offered for stays at Cable Beach, South Ocean, and the Downtown area.

Sand and Sun on Your Nassau Vacation

All-inclusive Nassau vacations offer several great beaches to be enjoyed.  Cable Beach, the main beach in Nassau, is very nice, with white sands and clear waters. Arguably the best section of Cable Beach is located in front of Breezes resort, so real beach lovers may wish to consider an all-inclusive Nassau package holiday at Breezes for most convenient access to premium beach. Paradise Island also offers a nice beach to Nassau package holiday tourists, with white sand and calm water for swimming in the Caribbean.  Atlantis Beach is not to be forgotten, and is equally nice. In addition to these many fine Nassau vacation beaches, additional public beaches provide even greater opportunity for the the real beach lover to explore.

Spring and Fall are the best seasons for taking an all-inclusive Nassau vacation, since temperatures can be uncomfortably low for some in the months of December and January. Average temperatures during prime seasons typically range between 70?-80?F (21?-27?C), with summer high temperatures climbing to 90?F. Winter low temperatures rarely dip below 60?F at night, but proper Nassau vacation preparation can ensure comfort at any time of the year.

Hurricane season, with its unpredictability of storm events, typically lasts from July through December, peaking from mid-August to mid-November.
