#5 of 19 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.

  • It is nice and know there is street, see the shops and walk. A drink out there. For single purchases there are designer shops and boutiques which offer good prices and some removed the foreigners tax.

  • Main shopping street near the port. It has everything: clothes, food, fun and jewels, a lot of jewelry. A lot of people to a location not as well taken care of.

  • This street is right outside the straw market. A lot of shops from cheap T-shirts to expensive jewelry. Fun to look around. A lot of restaurants as well.  more »
