Bay Street, Nassau

#3 of 14 in Shopping in Nassau
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.
