Bay Street, Nassau
(2/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Walk down Bay Street, the main thoroughfare of the capital, and you'll find a variety of shops selling local handmade gifts, souvenirs, clothing, and genuine Havana cigars. The British Colonial Hotel marks the beginning of the street where you will pass by boutiques as well as restaurants and clubs. Docked cruise ships at the nearby port will affect the crowds; try to time your visit when ships are not in port if you'd like to have the place to yourself.

  • On this endless Street are like hotels, and a great number of shops and stores where you can purchase some bargaining from jewelry, cigars and rum to the usual souvenirs. Everything is very expensive, is the Bahamas. But go slowly on various shops, pricenites' and eventually will find products or souvenirs at a reasonable price. Very many different restaurants, commemorative busts, a good view of the cruise ships of different types and calibers!

  • Bay Street is the main road in the centre of Nassau; unfortunately it is just shop after shop of tourist junk, jewellery shops and duty free. Not many local shopping there! 
  • A good Street walking on foot, for those coming from cruise is easy access from the port. It has several shops of souvenirs and also some designer labels, vale to do some shopping and watching a curious aspect of the place: the uniform of the traffic agents. On the port or on the ship you can get a map that guides the location of main shops.
